Earth Day on April 22nd is the perfect time to give Mother Nature the appreciation she deserves. Where to start, you ask? Well, we’re glad you asked. We’ve got two easy (but uber important) ways:
#1: Thank a farmer.
When you’re celebrating Earth Day this year, all it takes is your commitment to eggs farmed with animal welfare and environmental stewardship in mind. Our farmers use rotational pasturing to supply ample vegetation for the hens and maintain proper soil conservation.
No pesticides, herbicides or other chemicals are introduced to our hens, which ensures the protection of local water sources from runoff. Make NestFresh Pasture Raised Eggs your go-to ingredient … You have our dedicated farmers to thank for that!
Remember, every day is Earth Day to a farmer, so support yours locally!
#2: Buy local.
In the United States, “conventionally produced foods are often said to travel 1,500 miles from farm to plate,” according to an article by Columbia University. It’s also responsible for five to seven times more CO2 than locally produced food.
Consider this: Buying local food from ethical companies could reduce the average consumer’s greenhouse gas emissions by four to five percent!
