We carefully choose each supplier by studying their cultivation, harvesting, and production methods, as well as communal work practices.
We minimize the waste generated during the processing of our products and we make sure to achieve their best disposal. Our entire supply chain is free of toxic waste. In addition, we optimize residue: we compost organic waste and packaging is recycled or reused to meet the needs of others.
We do not add unnecessary air into our products. Instead, we pack them as compactly as possible inside their own recyclable bags and without wasting space, before we ship out to the world. In this way, our shipments and deliveries achieve the highest energy efficiency.
We learn from teachers
We recognize that farmers have been the backbone of life and nutrition for thousands of years. Today, when we seek to unlearn the consumption logics of the XNUMXth century, we turn to them again and find the key to generating a friendly relationship with our planet. Therefore, at TSC we develop a horizontal relationship and mutual learning experience with them and their communities. We receive their knowledge and contribute to reinforce their techniques and organizational structures. That is, to grow together.
Reusable Bamboo Scoop
Our bamboo scoops refresh our planet and reduce poverty in a sustainable way.
Our bamboo spoons refresh our planet and reduce poverty in a sustainable way.
The UN's Food and Agriculture Organization says that bamboo “represents a resilient agricultural alternative, which contributes to the maintenance of ecosystems, strengthens the capacity for adaptation and mitigation in the face of climate change and extreme meteorological phenomena, and allows to progressively improve soil quality.” It is the plant of the future!
And not only that: bamboo also promotes "the development of the green economy as a tool to achieve sustainable social, economic, and environmental development."
With so many good reasons, at The Superfood Company we use bamboo for our spoons and give the planet a helping hand. This ensures that the waste from the processing and production of our scoops can be used as a sustainable source of high-quality wood and charcoal for domestic use, or as additional income for communities.
Bamboo is a material recognized by the United Nations for its crucial role in achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) that this organization has proposed:
SDG 1 - End of poverty
Bamboo grows in some of the poorest communities in tropical and subtropical climates, where it gives people the opportunity to generate a sustained income to improve livelihood.
SDG 7 - Affordable and clean energy
Almost 40% of the world still depends on solid biomass for cooking and heating, putting enormous pressure on forests. Bamboo is an abundant and fast-growing renewable resource that can prevent thousands of trees from being cut down and burned.
SDG 12 - Responsible Consumption and Production
It replaces unsustainable resources used to make millions of objects, such as plastic spoons. This is how we put our grain of sand in the fight against global warming!
SDG 13 - Climate Action
They have a low or even negative carbon footprint in their life cycles, as they retain carbon in durable objects. Furthermore, bamboo helps prevent soil degradation, protecting forests from desertification.
SDG 15 - Life of terrestrial ecosystems
It is a key part of the biodiversity in which it grows: many mammals, insects, and fungi depend on bamboo to survive, including some endangered species, such as the panda bear or the large bamboo lemur.
Some species of bamboo can grow more than 1 meter per day
