SUSTAINABILITY

Here at eat for baby we take our commitment to preserving the future of Mother Earth very seriously. We don't do anything here at eat for baby without considering its effects upon our environment. We do this because our health is directly linked to the health of our planet.

When we say our food is organic, it means we are making deposits into the bank of regenerative farming, rather than withdrawals. It means we believe that food grown in nutrient rich soil, free from pesticides and other harmful chemicals, is best for you and your family. It’s what you deserve to eat and we’ve taken the view that it’s our mission to provide it to you.

When we say we use compostable packaging, it means we’ve searched the globe for a cellulose based pouch for our food that will break down into carbon dioxide, water and biomass in your home compost, in less than 30 weeks. Even our labels and stickers are compostable. We don’t want any trace of these pouches to be around when your babes arrive earthside, so we’ve partnered with the teams at PA Packaging solutions and NoIssue to achieve this.

When we say we use recycled and recyclable products for our postage and marketing collateral, it means EVERY order you place will be packed in a FSC cardboard box (by us!) and brought to your door by Australia Post, who carbon offset all deliveries. Inside that box will be our wool pack insulation, to keep your food cool as it travels the country. This is part compostable, and part recyclable. If that wasn’t enough, any flyer or recipe book you receive from us is printed on post consumer recycled paper. Practically, we don’t print more than we need.

When we say we are carbon negative - it means we are committed to giving back more carbon than we use each year. Even our manufacturing partner, Kitz Living Foods, is powered by 100% wind. As owner operators, we each calculate our carbon footprint (personal and business), then we double it and plant twice as many trees as needed to cover that. We are taking responsibility for our actions. How could we not, when changing the course of our future generation’s health is the reason we exist?

When we say we work from home, well, it means we work from home! We don’t power a big office space and spend our days nattering about the weekend at the printer. We use technology to streamline our work processes. As mothers, we apply the same principles of conservation and responsibility with our families, as we do with our business. We teach our kids to value - and be grateful for - the resources available to them. Because they are never infinite.

Our pledge

eat for baby is committed to ensuring that everyone can access our food. Having said this, we understand that home delivered, organic, prepared food in compostable packaging is financially out of reach for some people.

To try to balance this we:
* Make all of our recipes (and more) available via our e-books for anyone to make at home.
* Provide opportunities for people who are buying our food to donate food to a woman in need.
* Are committed to giving back 50% of our profits in community grants, food donations, access to healthcare and support services, regenerative agriculture and more. That’s not a typo, by the way. 50% is what makes us happy.

Together, by doing the best we can, with the resources we have, we can balance the scale and make sure that every parent has what they need for a thriving family.

Because sustainable living is important to us.
