Sustainability Story

Sustainability has always been one of our main focuses at Laid Back Snacks. While our core business involves shipping delicious and healthy snacks across North America, one of our goals is to do it in as sustainable a manner as possible. In mid-2020, we changed our packaging to a recyclable pouch which allowed us to eliminate single-use plastics in our product. We ship our snacks in FSC-certified, fully-recyclable boxes. This ensures that everything we ship to our customers is either edible or recyclable. We practice sourcing as locally and Canadian as possible to reduce shipping emissions. Along with becoming Climate Neural certified, we are expecting to become BCorp certified by late 2021.
