Why Grass-Fed Beef Is Better
Our 100% grass-fed local beef program consists of family-owned farms in the Northeast, who raise cattle entirely on pasture and never give them antibiotics, added hormones, or grain-based feed. These farms also use regenerative practices to rebuild the soil, restore biodiversity and improve the water cycle. It's a way of doing things that not only benefits the farmer, but also the animals and the environment. And for consumers, genuine, grass-fed beef is more tender, flavorful, leaner and remarkably juicy.

Spare Food & White Moustache: A Tasty Partnership
Spare Food Co.'s tonic drinks are borne out of a mission to reduce food waste. One way that they've worked toward this goal is by creating new products from overlooked ingredients. Their partnership with White Moustache, a small-batch yogurt company, takes the leftover whey from yogurt production and repurposes it for use in Spare's delicious beverages. Spare's investment has allowed White Moustache to expand their yogurt production, hire more people, and buy more milk from family farms in the Hudson Valley.

How Shellfish Support Cleaner Oceans
Shellfish like clams, oysters and mussels play an important role in making oceans cleaner. When farmed along the coast, they filter nitrogen and carbon out of the water while creating a habitat for other wild species. Because these farms require no feeds, fertilizers, or fresh water, they're far more self-sustaining than land-based forms of agriculture. So by purchasing any of the items on this list, you're not only getting delectable seafood, but also supporting an important natural resource.

Fruit rinds are nature's nutritional powerhouse, packing more fiber and vitamins per square inch than any other part of the fruit. Yet these small scraps add up to big problems. Power-packed edible peels are one of the most commonly wasted food items, contributing to millions of pounds of unnecessary waste. By using the whole fruit -- roots, rinds, seeds and stems -- in the manufacturing process, RIND helps to eliminate unnecessary waste associated with the removal of raw material and keeps these nutritious peels safely in the food system. In 2020 alone, RIND estimated having eliminated 120,000 pounds of edible peels from landfill with a vision to substantially increase this amount over the next 3-5 years.
