Dear Planet: We're listening
Gather Nuts launched more than three years ago. At that time, plant-based eating was on the rise, but witnessing the colossal shift happening now warms our vegan bellies.
We have been a plant-based company from the very start, and we’re excited about the future of plant-based eating and its positive effects on the planet!
Currently, the planet is putting out an S.O.S. to the world (and Sting is not going to save us). It’s up to us, so let’s talk plants - but first a refresher course on terminology.
“Global warming” refers to the rise in global temperatures, mainly due to increasing concentrations of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. “Climate change” refers to the impacts on climate over long periods of time, which includes the impacts on weather patterns, temperatures, precipitation, etc.
Recent findings show that "shifting diets from meat and other animal products to plant-based diets have a high potential for reducing carbon footprints and mitigating climate change" - according to the report from the United Nations' Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.
Plant-based diets have been scientifically proven to help reduce the effects of climate change, primarily because fewer resources are used.
Scientists have found that even small shifts in our diets to plant-based eating can have a significant impact globally - which means you can start by making tiny shifts in your diet and still have a positive impact on the planet.
Nuts are the perfect transition to a plant-forward diet. And from previous emails, you know nuts are one of the most environmentally friendly foods on the planet!
Nuts are also health-promoting, satiating, adaptable, and transportable – and if you’re eating Gather Nuts, they are also ridiculously delicious!
