Earth Day Earth Week: Nourish Our Planet with Snackalicious

Nourish Our Plant while Enjoying a Good Snack

Eat For Life By Marsha


We are huge fans of recycling and upcycling, so much so to a point where my Dad joked that I wash my garbage when I rinse yogurt and glass containers every time before throwing them into their proper bins. As if that’s not enough - of course that’s not enough! - when Earth Week rolls around, I would jazz things up with a cozy candlelit dinner, trivia throwdown, and snack attack. It has become a simple tradition that got us all buzzing like movie buffs on Oscar night.

So what is Earth Day?

Earth Day is a global event celebrated on April 22nd every year to support environmental protection. It started in 1970 and now coordinated by engages over 1 billion people from more than 193 countries. The day focuses on educating the public about environmental issues and motivating collective action for a sustainable planet.

Why should companies celebrate and what are some simples ways?

Did you know that 78% of employees aged 18 - 34 wishes their employer to be more mindful and take a stand on important social issues, such as climate change? It is also a great opportunity to engage teamwork and even drive innovate. After all, sustainability is a mindset. One of the things you can be more mindful of is food choices and food waste. And the process doesn’t have to be all stoic. 

Whether you are waiting for Earth Week to roll out the green carpet (or are missing out on it) - I've got a genius plan to make every day an Earth celebration at work! We're cracking open some Snackalicious Corporate Packs, these are 100% Gluten-Free snack packs stuffed with mouthwatering treats that are also natural and nutritious. Personally, I can't resist the veggie puffs and fruit chips in these packs. Even our Keto crew won't miss out this time, as these snack packs cater to all diets, including Keto and Paleo, with a smorgasbord of nuts, jerky, and cheese snacks. As for our Vegetarian buddies, they’ll get their own Vegan and Vegetarian box! Sweet or savory tooth, everyone’s covered.

Earth Day Awareness Tip: try to steer away from snacks with palm oil to help protect our forests. Opt for treats made with avocado oil, coconut oil, or sunflower oil instead. 

But wait, now that we are talking about healthier food choices, what about cookies?

The shining star in the snack pack - Marsha's freshly baked Gluten-Free cookies!
