Farming for the future
Agriculture is essential for nourishing our bodies, but it also has a significant impact on our planet. At I Eat My Greens, we collaborate with skilled farmers who steward the land they work on through diverse, environmentally-friendly practices. Farming for the future strikes a balance between planetary health, the well-being and profitability of farmers and preserving resources for future generations.
This delicate equilibrium is achieved through various practices, including integrated pest management for responsible pest control and crop rotations that enhance soil quality. We deeply understand the importance of each aspect and choose to partner with farmers who employ diverse ecological methods.
One vegetable at a time
Food waste is an urgent issue, with a staggering one billion tons of food ending up in landfills every year. I Eat My Greens proudly embraces upcycling, a transformative process that gives new life to vegetables that would otherwise go to waste. Instead of discarding produce due to cosmetic imperfections or appearance standards, we find ways to reuse them. It's important to recognize that the way food looks doesn't necessarily dictate its taste or quality. By rescuing these imperfect yet nutritious vegetables, we're sustainably feeding people and reducing waste.
Upcycling reduces greenhouse gas emissions, curbs deforestation and alleviates pressure on the environment. It also helps reshape our mindset and prevents the wasteful disposal of nutritious food. Our skilled chefs and food experts carefully assess the quality of these upcycled produce items to ensure they meet our high standards, resulting in delicious meals that contribute to a better food system.
It all starts with the soil
Soil health forms the foundation of agriculture. It is a complex ecosystem that supports the growth and sustenance of all living things. At I Eat My Greens, we have gained invaluable insights from our partnership with knowledgeable farmers committed to nurturing the soil.
In healthy soil, a thriving community of organisms provides the essential nutrients and minerals that plants need to flourish. Conversely, when soil is mistreated and loses its vitality, it becomes lifeless dirt, unsuitable for productive agriculture.
Without healthy soil, we cannot cultivate high-quality food. It is imperative to prioritize soil health.
That's why we partner with farmers who adopt soil-friendly practices, such as crop rotation, organic farming and regenerative agriculture. We collaborate with talented farmers who use a harmonious blend of traditional practices and innovation. By rejuvenating soil health, we're efficiently supporting diverse ecosystem services and nutrient-rich food.
The unsung heroes
Farmers are the unsung heroes of sustainable agriculture. At I Eat My Greens, we deeply value their contributions and recognize their role in maintaining natural habitats and ecosystem services. Moreover, we believe in giving back to these communities by making fresh produce available to workers in our plants and fields. We understand that supporting both the planet and the people cultivating our food is crucial.
