They area on a mission to turn the tides on climate change by restoring our ocean’s ecosystems.  They do this through regenerative ocean farming, which heals damaged ecosystems by increase marine biodiversity, abundance and water quality. Kelp is a zero input crop, using no pesticides, fertilizers, freshwater, or arable land. Kelp[ farms themselves have a net positive impact on the planet, absorbing and storing CO2, providing habitat, food, shelter, and reproductive grounds for wildlife, and preventing algae blooms and oceanic dead zones. And it doesn’t stop there: to help reduce plastic pollution (50% of which comes from single use packaging), 12 Tides uses compostable packaging and sustainable shipping!

What If Foods

Planet based food that’s for a Better Better

What If Foods uses the Bambara groundnut (nick named bamnut) to create plant based milk that is better for the planet than more conventional alternatives. The carbon footprint of bamnut milk is SEVEN times less than cow’s milk. If you were to replace 1 cup of almond milk with bamnut milk for one year, you alone would be saving 8,262 gallons of water. Bamnuts are a climate resilient crop, meaning it requires little resources to grow and is able to grow in harsh conditions we see on our planet today. Being a hardy legume, it is more sustainable because it restores soils by fixating nitrogen, introducing organic matter to the soil, and helps build an unground root system that is inductive to soil restoration. This brings back biodiversity and promotes a healthier ecosystem!
