Compostable Packaging: Food wrappers are the fourth most common single-use plastic found in the environment, according to UN Environment. The broader context of rightful living includes being caretakers of our planet. LivBar uses all 100% compostable wrappers made from cellulose, the most abundant of naturally occurring organic materials (certified to both ASTM D6400 and EN13432 by Vinçotte, Din Certco, and the BPI).
Carbon Neutral Shipping: While we've always been mindful of our impact on the Earth, we wanted to do more. To further reduce our footprint, we utilize a carbon offset tool that works directly with Pachama to determine the carbon produced from our direct shipments and to invest our payments in projects that are Verified Carbon Standard. Currently, we're supporting the Jari Pari Forest Conservation Project in the Amazon rainforest.
Certified Organic: From the ingredients we use to the facility we use them in, LivBar believes in the impact of choosing organic. LivBar is Certified Organic through both the USDA & Oregon Tilth. This means that we are responsible for following a myriad of strict standards, including working with suppliers who also follow organic practices.
According to the US Department of Agriculture, “Organic farmers utilize practices that:
- Maintain and improve fertility, soil structure and biodiversity, and reduce erosion
- Reduce the risks of human, animal, and environmental exposure to toxic materials
- Fine-tune farming practices to meet local production conditions and satisfy local markets
