Gastrostudent is happy to announce our new collaboration with JUST ONE Tree. Climate change affects us all, and today we launch our new initiative which is a milestone in supporting a more sustainable planet.
Our commitment: for every recipe box sold, we will plant a tree 🌳
Gastrostudent has been leading the way in offering a more sustainable meal kit option for university students across the UK.
We have already:
- Reduced student food waste by providing the ingredients you need
- Sourced ingredients from suppliers to reduce our carbon footprint
- Reduced the use of plastic in our recipe boxes by 70%, replacing plastic packaging with biodegradable packaging
- Continued to research and explore new packaging materials suitable for a sustainable future for Gastrostudent
Today, by partnering with JUST ONE Tree for our new initiative, we go one step further.
University students across the UK have been instrumental in leading the discussion of the future of our planet. Today's launch of our new initiative is a huge milestone for meal kits and university student engagement. We are the UK's first recipe box company to secure an exciting partnership with JUST ONE Tree; and with their ongoing commitment to remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, we're sure that students across the UK will be excited to positively contribute to a more sustainable future.
Who are JUST ONE Tree?
JUST ONE Tree is a non-profit initiative removing CO2 from the atmosphere and reversing biodiversity loss through global reforestation. They plant trees in areas severely affected by deforestation to maximise the effect on reducing global warming. In the process they help to provide agricultural education and sustainable incomes to local communities.
But they don’t stop there. JUST ONE Tree concentrates on restoring the entire ecosystem by planting on land and in the oceans, and they also focus on helping to shape the next generation of planet-conscious thinkers through environmental education initiatives such as JUST ONE Tree Day.
How can you help?
By purchasing your Gastrostudent recipe box, you are supporting Gastrostudent and JUST ONE Tree's initiative of removing CO2 from the atmosphere and planting trees in the right place. When you purchase a one-off recipe box or a subscription recipe box, we will plant a tree. Even better- if you subscribe to weekly orders, we will plant a tree weekly!
