Earth Day 2019 came and went on April 22nd! But we love that Earth Day doesn't have to be confined to a single day. Throughout the month, we've highlighted some of the ways we seek to make a better Earth. The goal is that you feel inspired to make a commitment or two for yourself. Whether it's starting a garden, composting, or reducing your plastic usage, there are tons of ways we can make tiny steps to be kinder to our planet Earth.  


What is my carbon footprint?

What's my carbon footprint?


Defining our individual carbon footprint can be a slippery endeavor; a journey riddled with acronyms, complex calculations, and scientific terms that might as well be another language. No thanks! Hard pass.

Instead, the goal is to break this subject down into easily digestible elements including research and resources that will help us better understand our part in the bigger story.

Let's start at the basics.

Sustainable Agriculture

INDUSTRIAL VS. SUSTAINABLE AGRICULTURE: WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE?


During the period of industrialization in our country, scientific discovery (often a result of war-related experimentation) led to synthetic fertilizers, antibiotics and pesticides. These technologies birthed an explosion of agricultural efficiency throughout our world. 

But at what cost?

Read the full post to learn the cost, and whether there's a better way.
  

Reusable Packaging

How to Reduce Packaging Waste This Earth Day


This basket has our original logo, meaning it has been in circulation for 7 years, reused at least 364 times! 

Multiply that thousands of times over, year after year, and our community's waste reduction in Metro Atlanta is significant.

Trashing packaging is more convenient than reusing it, but it has serious consequences.

Learn how our customers are participating in a system where their convenience (home delivery), is actually contributing to a cleaner planet. 
  

Rise N Shine Farm

How Buying local reduces food waste

A food waste study claims the food supply chain can be improved to save up to $290 billion annually in food waste. 

When food is being harvested across the country (or world) from where it's consumed, there is a significant need for storage solutions that will preserve food for thousands of miles and several weeks.

By contrast, we recently asked Mitch from Rise ‘N Shine where he stores his veggies. He cheekily replied, “In the ground.”

Learn how you, as a Fresh Harvest customer, are helping to eliminate food waste at each step of the supply chain.
