Current Year Reduction Actions

01

What We’re Reducing

We plan to reduce emissions and electricity by eliminating our office space.

How We'll Reduce It

We plan to continue to allow WFH opportunities even after the pandemic concludes and it is safe to go to the office. We will also take advantage of co-working spaces for necessary in-person meetings instead of a dedicated office.

02

What We’re Reducing

We plan to reduce reliance on air freight.

How We'll Reduce It

Downstream, we will work with ground transportation companies to ensure our shipments aren't sent via air transit. Upstream, we will source locally to reduce transportation emissions and forecast in advance avoid delays in production.

Other Sustainability Notes

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.
