of course making yoghurt takes a lot of milk. but did you know it also takes water? water for washing and cleaning the equipment that we use. that’s why we built our very own state-of-the-art water treatment plant. instead of dumping all that water down the drain, we reclaim 100% of it to irrigate the crops on our farm.
to make sure, we work with a third party to test and certify all our ingredients are non-GMO. while completely avoiding GMOs when feeding our cows is a difficult task, our farms always do their best. because they can't guarantee all the feed is non-GMO, we test our milk to be sure that it is 100% completely GMO free.
many of the boxes we use get reused and re-reused many times over. others get repurposed and shredded for use as animal bedding at horse farms, veterinary schools, and zoos around the country. the rest gets recycled. in all, we’ve reused, repurposed, and recycled 738,000 pounds of cardboard!
through our support of the Pollinator Partnership, we’re committed to the well-being of some of our smallest employees, the millions of honey bees producing all that deliciously sweet honey we use in our yoghurt. together we’re working to protect and expand honey bee habitats. it’s good for the earth and deliciously good for yoghurt.
we’re committed to helping our local communities any way we can–from supporting school fundraisers, cycling team sponsorships, engaging in conservation projects, and partnering with radio stations to highlight up-and-coming artists. even our co-founders, Rob and Koel, help mentor local startups and speak at events around the country.
