There are two major key contributors to the decline of the health of our planet — industrialized animal agriculture and plastic. Industrialized animal agriculture is responsible for mass deforestation, hazardous water and air pollution, and it contributes more harmful greenhouse gas emissions than the entire transportation sector combined. Our dependence on plastic has far surpassed sustainable levels, with the planet’s waterways so polluted with plastic trash that it is predicted there will be more plastic than fish in the oceans by 2050. Add to this the fact that many animal species, including endangered ones, are killed as a result of both deforestation from animal agriculture and entanglement or ingestion of plastic, and ditching animal products and plastics has never been more appealing.
And now, in an effort to lessen their carbon footprint and help the planet, plant-based creamer brand, nutpods has announced they will be releasing America’s first “plant pack” carton made from 95 percent plants!
The new packaging will make its debut at the at the start of fall this year with nutpods’ popular pumpkin spice-flavored creamer, and it will continue to be incorporated in the rest of the brand’s products in the following months.
