Welcome to Earthbound Farm's new website and blog — and to being a part of the Earthbound community. Whether you know us primarily through our products, our website, our Facebook or Twitter communities, or our consumer contact team, I hope it's obvious that all of us who work at Earthbound are passionate about pursuing our mission to bring the benefits of organic food to as many people as possible and serve as a catalyst for positive change.
As a company, we've made a commitment to making organic salads, fruits, and vegetables affordable for everyone who wants them and it's rewarding to see that we're making good on that. Today, our products are often priced less than comparable non-organic items. But most days, they're approximately 15% (about 30 cents) higher, which we hope is a manageable difference. We believe everyone should have an opportunity to enjoy organic food.
In addition to farming organically, which has a much more positive environmental impact than conventional farming, we're always looking at ways to make every part of our business as environmentally positive as we can. Packaging is a big issue that we're constantly working on. Our latest move? Check out our new patented clamshell package for our salad. The top zips easily off and easily recloses. By getting rid of the shrinkband closure, we've reduced the amount of plastic in the package by 10% and now the entire package is made from 100% post-consumer recycled PET. We hope you like it as much as we do! Once you pick up a package, please let us know what you think by contacting us through this website or toll-free at 800-690-3200.
Thank you for your continued support of Earthbound!
