We mitigate our environmental impact in production, packaging and operations. We provide the most nutritious and holistically wholesome food as possible.

Why Vegan?

The following information has been shown to be true based on scientific studies:
It takes 127,852gal of water to raise 1lb of complete bioavailable (NPU) beef protein. 1lb of complete bioavailable spirulina protein only uses 55gal. It takes 3/4gal of oil to produce 1lb of beef. Livestock produces 2/3 of the world's ammonia pollution (think, "acid rain") & more greenhouse gases than all transportation worldwide. Toxins & heavy metals concentrate in the flesh of animals. Plants alkalize and oxygenate your body and reduce the chances of cancer, heart disease and organ failure. 1oz kale has over 70% of the bioavailable calcium as 1oz, 2% milk. Plants can provide more than enough complete protein for optimal human health.
