Better Eating

Better Eating

Food is the single most critical factor when it comes to our health. It is also critical to our planet’s health, with the food industry accounting for one third of global energy consumption and over 20 percent of emissions.* All the more shocking, then, that 30 percent of the food we buy is thrown away,** even though one-ninth of the world is going to sleep hungry each night.*** That is why we aim to help people make better eating choices in ways that are effortless and enjoyable.

Better Clothing Care

Clothes. They’re among the most personal items we own. But our wardrobes are contributing to global climate change. Over the past 20 years, we have quadrupled the number of garments we go through.* We also discovered that compounding the issue is the fact that 90% of our clothes are thrown away before they need to be.** Part of the problem is fast fashion—another is aftercare. Due to poor, outdated laundry habits, the lifespan of garments is diminishing. It’s time we changed the way we consume and care for our clothes. As experts in clothing care, we want to do all we can to help drive this change.

Better Home Environment

Poor air quality has become a widespread risk to human health. According to the UN, 92% of people live in places where pollution exceeds recommended limits. While we spend much of our time indoors — on average, about 16 hours a day* — this only makes matters worse. Due to inadequate ventilation and floor hygiene, the concentration of harmful pollutants indoors can often be up to five times higher than outdoors.* This doesn’t have to be the case. And we can undertake efforts to improve people’s wellbeing at home.
