How we’re climate-friendly

There is no silver bullet to solving the climate crisis, but we know two things to be true. First, food production takes an environmental toll. Second, we must reduce global net CO2 to zero and also draw down carbon this decade for us to ensure a safe, stable temperature. Every decision we make, every day, matters. We believe that with immediate action, we can create longstanding and necessary sustainable change.

Our Ingredients

We source ingredients that are as close to the farmer as we can get. For example, the two primary ingredients in our crackers, organic Edison wheat and sunflower oil, are traceable back to farmer and field. Since we forge direct connections with farmers, we know exactly where and how our food is grown--which includes its climate-friendliness and human impact. Most brands utilize suppliers for their ingredients, making it difficult to trace their sourcing and impact. At Moonshot, we’re proud to set a new precedent.

Shorter Supply Chain

Limiting the distance our ingredients travel is also a priority! Our wheat is grown only 2 miles from the mill where it becomes flour. The mill is only 85 miles away from the bakery where this flour is transformed into delicious Moonshot snacks. With less time on the road, our ingredients aren’t just climate-friendly, they deliver snacks with fresher, bolder flavors as well.

Regenerative Agriculture

Healthy topsoil grows healthy food and helps create a healthy planet. Unfortunately, 70% of the world’s available topsoil has been eroded. 😬 Moonshot is committed to supporting new topsoil creation, which is why our visionary farmers have built soil health right into their cultivation methods. Those are the regenerative agriculture practices we keep mentioning. These practices require strong knowledge on how to cultivate a healthy ecosystem in a particular location and stem from indigenous peoples’ deep understanding of place and species interdependence.

When soil’s health is properly maintained, it attracts microbes that will turn plant matter into more healthy soil (yay!). At scale, this process sequesters carbon, replenishes topsoil, and helps tackle climate change.
