Garden of Life has achieved a major milestone.

“We can’t make the products we love at Garden of Life without a thriving environment that can produce clean, organic ingredients,” said Brian Ray, president of Garden of Life. “Becoming certified Carbonfree is not just the right thing to do — it’s critical for ensuring clean nutrition for generations to come.”

To become Carbonfree certified, Garden of Life worked with SustainaBase to create a data-driven approach to measure its carbon footprint throughout its entire supply chain. From there, the company was able to identify its carbon emission reduction opportunities.

As a way to creatively share this news, the brand worked with earthworks artist Stan Herd to create a larger-than-life message in an organic alfalfa field outside of Lawrence, Kan.

“It felt disingenuous to declare we’ve achieved carbon neutrality in a way that didn’t serve the Earth,” Ray said. “We wanted to document this exciting milestone for our company and share it widely, but deliver it in the most sustainable way.”
