No matter what part of the world you live in, April is a month focused on mother earth. The warmth of the sun awakens the richness of our soil, peonies and lilacs lace green lawns, and there’s a certain vibrancy in the air no other season radiates. It’s no wonder, around one billion people around the globe participate in environmental activism and celebrate Earth Month in April.
Even though we’re celebrating our planet this month, here at Vive, we’re always doing our best to champion health, pure and simple. Keep reading to see how we protect the planet at every step of our process!
Vive's Sustainability Mission: It’s our #1 priority to always nurture your wellbeing, and for us, taking care of the planet is the first step towards that mission. So what steps do we take to ensure this happens?
- Ugly Produce
An oddly shaped orange or lemon may not be the most aesthetically pleasing, but usually, the inside is perfectly usable and beautiful. Why throw them away, when you still get a tasty result? So yes, we 100% juice ugly fruits that don’t belong in the garbage can!
