Earth Day and the Importance of Green Business

On this Earth day, we are taking a pause to reflect on what it means to help people and help our planet, especially in this uncertain time.

At Souperb, we believe it is our duty to be a responsible company to our community and to contribute to a healthy planet and population. One way we do this is by providing healthy, plant-based food without added sugar, high fat, and high sodium content. We want to nourish our community with healthy plants, focusing on vegetables. We also ensure that our packaging is recyclable. Another way to operate in an environmentally responsible manner is by using a green certified kitchen in an effort to help protect our environment.

You may be wondering, what is a green certified kitchen? Green food companies aim to conserve energy and water, minimize waste, prevent pollution, and shrink their carbon footprints. Souperb’s Bay Area kitchen is honored to be a Certified Green Business.

Let’s dive into what it means to be Certified Green, specifically in California. The main focus is on Kitchen Equipment, Lighting, Water Conservation, and Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning. Some examples include upgrading outdated and inefficient electrical/refrigeration equipment, replacing old water-consuming products and aerators with low-flow options, updating HVAC systems, utilizing compost and recycling programs, and using low-toxic products. These changes are not only environmentally beneficial, but also improve employee and customer health. Check out some interesting statistics about California’s environmental impact:
