Current Year Reduction Actions

01

What We’re Reducing

We plan to limit future employee travel to necessary travel only.

How We'll Reduce It

Since we are a small startup, our travel would normally expect to increase exponentially during the next year, but we are going to minimize that travel and continue to do more virtually using zoom and other tele-networking apps.

02

What We’re Reducing

We plan to transition to a sustainable web hosting service.

Other Sustainability Notes

Cool Beans was built around sustainability and wellness. Our burritos are 100% plant-based and carry about 92% less GHGs (249 gCO2e) than the leading steak and cheese burrito (2,362 gCO2e). Our products revolve around the mighty bean which sequesters carbon into the soil and also provides a lot of great fiber for gut health. Finally we built plant diversity into our products to foster a regenerative agricultural system. We have 24 different plants in our first 5 burrito flavors. Plant diversity is great for our gut, great for the soil, and great for planetary biodiversity.
