Earth Day 2022

Earth Day 2022

On the 22nd of April each year, Earth Day is celebrated to help diversify, educate and activate the environmental movement worldwide. Typically more than one billion people get involved, making it the largest civic observance in the world.

This year's theme is 'Invest in our planet', with the core message being to preserve and protect our health, families and livelihoods, because a green future is a prosperous future. As Emmanuel Macron once said, "By polluting the oceans, not mitigating CO2 emissions and destroying our biodiversity, we are killing our planet. Let's face it, there is no planet B."

By mid-century, we need to reach net-zero greenhouse gas emissions to keep the global temperature below 1.5°C. If not, wildfires, droughts, floods, crop failure, famine, mass migration and the destruction of ecosystems, communities and wildlife are just some of the many predicted outcomes if we pass the global threshold and are unable to reverse unmitigated global warming. 

As a food delivery service, we at Mon Dessert have a part to play in making sure that we use sustainable practices wherever possible within our business. That's why with every decision we make, we consider the impact our actions could have on People, the Planet and Profit.
As a new company, we've been embedding sustainability from the bottom up.
We're in the midst of ensuring that everything in our kits is either recycled, recyclable or reusable and we aim to use responsibly sourced, fair trade ingredients wherever possible. The majority of our kits are also vegan friendly, as we understand the importance of catering to a vegan diet for both personal and planetary reasons. 
What's more, we give back 1% of our revenue where it is most needed. This means that 1% of everything you spend with us goes towards our planet and our future. We're also currently in the process of becoming a certified B Corp, to demonstrate our pledge to exhibit transparency across our business and meet high social and environmental standards. 
Being a start-up, we know we still have a way to go. So if you have any ideas or suggestions for us, please do get in touch via We’d love to hear them.
