Here's an exciting thing...
We've worked out the carbon
footprint of our mangoes and passion fruits smoothie.
It's part of a big project we've been working on with the
Carbon Trust to measure
the impact of our business from field to store.
We have a business mantra to leave the planet a little bit
better than we found it, so reducing our carbon footprint is high
on the priority list. And we've worked out that the footprint for
our mangoes and passion fruit smoothie is 294 grams.
So what does that actually mean? Well, we did a bit of research
to put it into context and found out that the average apple has a
footprint of 37.5 grams and the Daily Mirror newspaper has a
footprint of 174 grams. We are looking for more examples of food
products and will let you know when we find them.
And we've done a load more work on our footprint results, where
our business's emissions come from, how much carbon we should all
use each day, and the best ways for us all to reduce our carbon
footprints. So please have a look and tell us what you think. And
if you have any thoughts at all on this whole area of carbon
emissions, footprints and what we're doing about it...

We'd love to hear from you.
...watch this space for the footprint results for the rest
of our smoothies...
