Our Commitment to Sustainability

Our Environmental Promise

Here at PlantPrep, we are committed to doing our bit to look after the environment.

We promise to continue to strive towards providing the most sustainable and responsibly sourced packaging and food ingredients available to us, and to listen to customer and industry feedback to help us achieve our commitment.

Our Packaging

Whether for our ready-made meals or our meal kits, the packaging that we use ensures your food arrives to you as fresh as possible. However, we are also very conscious of ensuring that our packaging is as environmentally friendly as possible. We only add in packaging where it is absolutely necessary to preserve your food, and we always strive to provide packaging that is 100% recyclable.

Locally Sourced Ingredients

We source all of our fresh vegetables and dry ingredients from local farmers and suppliers. Not only is this great for the local economy, it ensures that the ingredients that we use to create your meals have travelled fewer “food miles” to get to our kitchen. This means our ingredients have less greenhouse gas emissions per kilogram. It also means that we can create your meals with fresher ingredients, so it is a double win!

Reduced Food Waste

We’re able to plan how much food we need for each week almost down to the gram. This means that we only ever order the exact quantity of fresh ingredients needed to prepare your meals, resulting in far less food wastage. If for some strange reason we do over-order, we just make extra meals for our weekly donation of meals to Foodbank, so nothing is ever wasted!

Plant-Based Diets and the Environment

Eating a plant-based diets is arguably the best thing you can do to help the environment. In one of the most comprehensive analyses to date into the effects of farming on the environment, published in the revered Science journal, researchers from the University of Oxford stated that a plant-based diet could reduce an individual’s carbon footprint from food by up to 73%, whilst also reducing global farmland use by 75%.

The lead author of the study went as far as saying, “a vegan diet is probably the single biggest way to reduce your impact on planet Earth, not just greenhouse gases, but global acidification, eutrophication, land use and water use.”
