Specific Brands I support for Sustainability
I’m using Barilla pasta and Neal Brothers’ Basil & Tomato sauce. I try to support Barilla Pasta due to their sustainability mission as a large leading company in the pasta business. Since 2010, the company has reduced their carbon emissions by -28%, water consumption by -21%, and their energy usage by -8%. Their packaging is recyclable, as well.

How can you lead a more sustainable lifestyle?
I mentioned this on my Instagram you can lead a sustainable lifestyle just by supporting companies that are eco-friendly. My hope is if a large company like Barilla Pasta can become sustainable in their business practices, any company can. Only if we consumers demand it by supporting companies that already are.
Why? Because once other companies will notice that their sustainable competitors are doing well, they will make the switch over to win over those customers.
The first way I started to notice if companies were on the right path was by looking at their packaging. Most sustainable companies before going organic will participate in the GMO-Free Project and this will be indicated on the package label.
This is the usually first sign that they care enough about what they’re feeding people and how that impacts the planet. The second way I check is by simply looking up their company mission online and see if they have a section dedicated to sustainability. Yep, it’s that simple.
