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
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 firstname.lastname@example.org. We’d
love to hear them.
