A Bottle of Lilk - The Lush Blend - Oat, Coconut, and Quinoa Milk, in plants and flowers

OUR PLANET

We like living here (here being Planet Earth), so we do our best to reduce our impact on the environment. While we are a small company, being independently-owned means we can be transparent about how we do things and hold ourselves accountable as we grow.

Our process isn’t perfect, but we’re always learning and improving. Read on to hear about where we’re at (for now). We'll keep the greenwashing at bay, promise!

Our product

As part of our improvement process, we have asked our partners MyEmissions to independently calculate our CO2 emissions, and analyse the entire food chain chain, what they call "Cradle-to-store", including farming, production, and transport.

We were granted the best possible rating - an A! It officially takes just [0.3 g] of CO2 to create a carton of Lilk (that’s even better than most of the m*lk on the market).

There are a few reasons for this rating. The main one is we’re made in the UK (Somerset, specifically), which reduces our transport routes and emissions. It also helps that our main ingredients, oat and rice, are low-carbon. Also we’re not an overly processed drink so we use less energy. The perks of being mostly just grains, seeds and dreams.

 

 

An Ice latte poured with Lilk The Common Blend, Oat and Rice Milk

Our packaging

Our bottles look a little different for good reason. They’re made using an innovative carton bottle called Combidome. Fully recyclable, low-carbon and made from FSC-certified paperboard, this clever design saves space, prevents leaks and allows you to pour every drop.

Straight facts

  • Making 1 litre of Lilk produces five times less greenhouse gases than cow’s milk
  • It takes 30% less carbon to make Lilk than the market leader
  • First plant milk in the EU to use new eco friendly format, reducing production waste by 30%
  • Just by swapping your daily latte from dairy to Lilk, you’ll save an incredible 138 KG CO2e a year.

That’s 16 return Eurostar trips from Paris to London. Mon dieu!

 

So while we’ve reduced our emissions in the supply chain, we’ve got a few things blending in the background that will continue to have a genuine impact… Know of any groups, organisations or initiatives we should consider? Our inbox is open. Contact us at info@happyprojects.co
