Our 12 Favorite Regenerative Brands

Moonshot Snacks

@moonshotsnacks

Moonshot is the first explicitly climate-friendly snack brand in the U.S. They use the magic of food to help undo climate change by making delicious crackers sourced from regenerative ingredients.


Sustainability:

Moonshot calculates their carbon footprint and works to reduce emissions where they can while matching the rest with offsets. Their packaging is made from 100% recycled paper and the interior bag can be recycled in plastic bag recyclables. Their farmers use both organic and regenerative farming practices to keep the soil healthy and help tackle climate change head on.

12 Tides

@12tides

12 Tides is turning the tides on climate change, one kelp chip at a time. 12 Tides believes snacks should be delicious, good for you and good for the planet.


Sustainability:

12 Tides supports ocean restoration projects around the world, including SeaTrees’ initiative to restore kelp forests along the California coast through 1% for the Planet. Their snacks disappear pretty fast, and so does their packaging, which is 100% compostable. 

Also, kelp is a zero-input crop–regeneratively farmed kelp removes carbon from our oceans, improves water quality and provides a habitat for biodiverse marine life, all while producing nutrient rich food that’s also tasty!
