Making ShiokFarm Sustainable Together
Sustainability is our guiding force. Our organic fruit and vegetables come from the countries around Singapore and we avoid plastic wherever we possibly can - that means zero plastic in our bags*.
We truly believe that every action - big or small - has an impact. Put them together and they become stronger and stronger. These are our first steps towards change. Will you join us?
*With the exception of berries which will be damaged if we do not use plastic boxes.
How to offset your carbon footprint
It is an important goal for us as a company to become carbon neutral. And since we are a community, we would like to extend this goal to our members as well. Here is how you can offset the carbon footprint of your fruit & vegetables bag subscription.
This table shows the different bags we have as well as the number of trees one should plant to offset the carbon footprint of his/her bag.
Over To You
Know how many trees you need to plant? There are two ways you can offset your carbon footprint: either plant the trees yourself through our Plant A Tree program or donate to an association that plants trees (coming soon).
Our Plant a Tree program was set up for two reasons: firstly, we wanted our children to understand that food takes time to grow. A pineapple does not grow in a plastic tray at the supermarket. A pineapple can take up to 2.5 years to grow, hence you want to make sure you finish your plate and not waste food. The second objective of this program is to show children that even children as young as 3 years old can have a very positive impact in his/her community.
We teach children how to plant and grow trees, with seeds taken from their ShiokFarm fruits (papaya, bananas, citrus, etc.). After a few weeks, they will have little trees. The trees will eventually give fruit the children will be able to eat, or donate to the community.
