Experience…Nature’s Path Organic

Eat Well. Do Good.

“To be a trusted name for quality organic foods in every home, socially responsible, environmentally sustainable and financially viable.” ~Arran Stephens, Founder

Eat Well.

Nature’s Path aspires to advance the cause of people and our planet, along the path to sustainability. Nature’s Path all began from the passion of Arran Stephen’s to grow organic, healthy foods in a sustainable way.

At Nature’s Path, they work hard to stay true to their values while bringing you the most delicious, healthy foods imaginable. They spend their days dreaming up new recipes, tracking down exotic new ingredients, and researching the latest (or most ancient) superfoods. “We know you’ll be pretty impressed when you read our labels. But we hope you’ll be even more impressed when you take your first bite.” ~Nature’s Path

Do Good.

Nature’s Path is truly a family company with family values. It all started when Arran’s father inherited the family farm, Mountain Valley Farm, and instilled in Arran to “always leave the soil better than you found it.” This is still Nature’s Path guiding business principles and they are running their business with the health of the soil in mind at every step.

Meanwhile, Nature’s Path is taking many measurable actions to reduce waste and increase sustainability.  They’ve reduced the amount of paper in their packages, they buy farmland and convert it to organic, they compost like crazy, and even have an experimental green roof at their headquarters. Nature’s Path is on their way to being zero-waste certified and completely carbon neutral by 2020!

Here at the Organic and Natural Experience we thrive off of do good companies that make healthy, great tasting foods like Nature’s Path. All of our partners are working towards a sustainable, healthy lifestyle for all people. These companies make a measurable impact on our future and the future of our planet.

We can all do things every day to reduce our carbon footprint and improve the sustainability of our environment. Do your part! Here are some easy things YOU can do:

–         Work From Home: Saving one trip to work and home will reduce the amount of carbon dioxide released into the atmosphere. It will also save you time and money!

–         Eat Organic: What you eat matters and effects our environment. Read Food Facts from the Natural Resources Defense Council http://www.nrdc.org/globalwarming/eatgreen.asp

–         Join a CSA – Community Supported Agriculture: Supporting your local farmers increases the sustainability of your community and reduces transportation emissions. Visit www.localharvest.org to find a CSA near you.

–         Change your commute: Take the bus, ride your bike, ride share, or take the train. Summer time is the perfect opportunity to try other forms of transportation. Why not get some exercise on your way to work?

–      Switch to paperless: Pay your bills online. It’s easy and the whole process is much faster.

–         Choose Wild Caught Fish: Studies have found that farm raised fish can contain high levels of mercury and leave bigger carbon footprints. Use this guide to make better decisions about buying fish: http://www.simplesteps.org/food/shopping-wise/consumer-guide-mercury-fish

–         Reduce Meat in Your Diet: This is not only great for your waistline and heart, but cutting out one day of meat you can make a difference for the atmosphere. The average American diet is responsible for emitting 3,578 pounds of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere each year. Just by simply reducing your red meat intake, you can reduce approximately 1,500 pounds of pollutants each year.  Source: http://www.simplesteps.org/food/shopping-wise/co2-smackdown-step-6-trimming-out-beef-and-pork
