Pumpkin Organics is now apparently carbon neutral
The baby food manufacturer says it is offsetting its entire CO2 emissions for the year 2020 and is supporting a project in the Democratic Republic of Congo.
Munich-based start-up Pumpkin Organics sees itself as a pioneer in the German baby food industry. Now the young company wants to minimize its ecological footprint. To do this, it relies on vegetarian ingredients from organic farming for its baby food, which should be produced as regionally as possible.
Where Pumpkin Organics cannot yet reduce its environmental footprint, it aims to offset it completely. Together with the organization ClimatePartner, the start-up supports the project "Hydropower for the protection of the Virunga National Park in the Democratic Republic of Congo" for this purpose. The region is known for its mountain gorillas, which are threatened with extinction. "For a healthy and happy tomorrow, it is essential that companies face up to their responsibility for the environment. We are proud to do our part and hope to instill the theme of sustainability in even the youngest of children," says Jaclyn Schnau, founder and CEO of Pumpkin Organics.
