Building a Better World in Partnership with Savory Institute and 1% For the Planet
Ever since our humble roots selling cold-pressed juice at the local farmer’s market, sustainability has been at the heart of how we operate as a business. Throughout our growth as a company, we have continued to reaffirm our commitment to environmental practices at every level – from our ingredient sourcing to our waste disposal practices. This year, we are proud to announce our latest effort to give back to the beautiful planet we call home through our partnership with 1% for the Planet. You can sip easy knowing that 1% of every Pressery sale is going back to preserving our planet.
What is 1% for the Planet?
1% for the Planet is a worldwide network of businesses and individuals committed to doing their part to preserve our planet. Business members (like Pressery) donate 1% of their annual sales to support an environmental organization of their choosing. Together, we can be a more powerful source to solve the world’s problems.
What Environmental Cause Does Pressery Support?
Perhaps not surprisingly, food has always been near and dear to our hearts. But our passion doesn’t just extend to the meals on our plates – we believe food should be responsibly grown and consumed, from soil to first slurp. That’s why we’ve chosen to partner with Savory Institute, an organization that combats climate change through the restoration of our world's grasslands using regenerative agriculture.
We rely heavily on livestock like cattle to craft our fresh organic bone broths, and care deeply about the delicate relationship between grazers and grasslands. Today, unsustainable grazing practices have depleted over 70% of the world’s grasslands. Because of their sheer size and ability to sequester CO2 in the soil, the decimation of our grasslands is a devastating blow in our fight to maintain a livable climate. Savory Institute looks to reclaim those grasslands that have been degraded by implementing holistic management, which uses the behavior of wild livestock to help farmers, ranchers, and others develop strategies for managing herds of domestic livestock in order to restore balance to the land.
What Are the Benefits of Holistic Management?
Aside from drawing excess CO2 from the atmosphere, healthy grasslands also provide a myriad of societal benefits to farmers and communities alike. Increasing the health of the soil through holistic management boosts the productivity of the land, meaning more food for surrounding communities and higher profits for land-owners. Proper land management also prevents desertification, a phenomenon that leads to severe flooding and droughts. Adopting a holistic approach means healthier livestock, wealthier communities, and a brighter future for our planet.
At Pressery, we believe in making responsible choices – for our bodies and for the world. We are proud to contribute to Savory Institute’s efforts to combat climate change and support communities around the world with each Pressery product we sell.
