Team Up With Us To Save The Planet
Here at Real Live Food Oregon, this is a motto we live and run by. The impact we have on our planet is at the forefront of everything we do because we care about the future. From where we source our ingredients to how we care for our community, we are dedicated to sustainability.
We dream of a world where communities are transparent about carbon footprints so that everyone can work together to reduce our impact on the planet. This is clearly a community problem to tackle.
Today we can all start a conversation with a neighbor, friend, or family member about how we can help. Reducing, reusing, and recycling in your home is as important as supporting businesses whose practices align with your values.
“In 2017, direct greenhouse gas emissions from homes and businesses accounted for 11.6 percent of total U.S. greenhouse gas emissions.”-The US Environmental Protection Agency
They attributed a whopping additional 22.2% of emissions to industrial sources. Read more here.
To do our part, we recycle nearly all the materials we use, compost our food waste, and donate food locally every week. We also avoid single-use items in favor of sturdy, long-lasting equipment. This helps us to create less waste and minimize our overall energy use.
We LOVE our community. Seriously, you are all fantastic. Thank you to all our believers here in the Pacific Northwest!
In 2019, we made friends with Welcome Home Animal Sanctuary in Creswell, OR. It’s home to many happy souls that are getting the opportunity for a full life. We’re so delighted to be able to help feed the cows, pigs, chickens, alpacas, and goats that live there. They’re just too cute!
In the past, we’ve partnered with the Martin Luther King Education Center. They’re a great program that helps youth in our area overcome obstacles to success. We love their passion for helping to strengthen and empower our community.
We’d also like to give a special shout out to our beautiful local Moondogs Farm and Toby’s Farm. Thank you for always providing us with garden-fresh organic produce and helping to nourish our community.
A Little Superhero In Us All
Always organic, local, and fresh. That’s our promise to you because we care.
We envision a sustainable green world where everyone enjoys access to delicious plant-based foods. And in our eyes, everyone that does their part to make that dream a reality is a superhero.
