Yes, yes, yes! Household staple So Delicious Dairy-Free has long been one of the major players in the plant-based food industry. Not only are they the makers of Salted Caramel Cluster Cashew Milk and Cookie Dough Coconut Milk ice cream, So Delicious also makes vegan yogurt, creamers, and even dairy-free cheese. That’s why when we learned about So Delicious not only expanding their nut milk line with three new So Delicious Organic Almondmilk with Cashew but making the new product in a carton made from plants, we did a happy dance.
The three new nut milk flavors include vanilla, unsweetened, and original. Each flavor includes cashews for extra creamy goodness and is free of carrageenan, artificial flavors, artificial colors, dairy, and soy.
In an effort to lead in sustainability, So Delicious’ new nut milks are offered in a recyclable carton made from 80 percent plants, which will allow So Delicious to reduce their dependence on fossil fuels. Hooray!
Not only is food waste a huge issue in the United States (about 40 percent of edible food gets thrown in the trash every year, leading to massive waste problems) there is also a problem with food packaging. According to the EPA, nearly a third of U.S. landfills are occupied by packaging. But thanks to leading companies such as So Delicious, we are seeing innovative food packaging alternatives.
While many companies are offering eco-friendly solutions, there are many things we as consumers can do to help, like using reusable water bottles, tote bags, and even straws instead of disposable plastic ones.
So Delicious is already making a huge positive impact on the environment by offering a wide array of dairy-free products, considering dairy production is responsible for a plethora of air and water pollution, in addition to exorbitant greenhouse gas emissions. By introducing plant-based packaging and reducing their reliance on plastic, they are furthering their mission to create more sustainable, healthy products for consumers. Well done, So Delicious!
