One of New Zealand’s most popular grocery items now has an environmentally friendly option, with Kiwi-owned company All Good introducing the country’s first zero-carbon (and Fairtrade) bananas.
All of All Good’s Fairtrade bananas are now Ekos-certified zero carbon and the tape is now soft-plastic-recyclable. All Good, who were the first to bring Fairtrade bananas to New Zealand, worked for a year in partnership with T&G Fresh and alongside Ekos to assess every step of the production journey, reducing emissions at source through key environmental projects and offsetting the remaining carbon through rainforest projects in Peru.
With consumers more intent than ever on using their dollars to make a difference, it makes sense to have a guilt-free option on the shelves.
“Food production and consumption makes up a quarter of the world’s greenhouse gas emissions,” said All Good’s co-founder Simon Coley.
Our impact as consumers has the potential to make a massive change. The ultimate scenario, for everything we buy and consume is to choose products that do as much good as possible for the people producing them, the planet, and ourselves.
