Ketogeek Product Design Update & Supporting Sustainability

by Fahad Ahmad on June 15, 2018

The Ketogeek Energy Pods are getting a major overhaul in how they look. It's always been our goal as food company to support and work with other companies and products that provide exceptional contributions to society and the world as a whole. We always wanted to have a spoon with our Energy Pods but the problem was that they were all made from plastic which isn't exactly as biodegradable as paperboard which is the material used for these spoons.

FEATURES

  • Made from Paperboard which turns into compost in about 3-4 weeks and hence reducing the wastage that leads to further processing cost and carbon foot print. It is fully recyclable while they consume 1/4th of the space and material compared to plastic utensils.
  • Efficient use of space and is practically featherweight
  • Sturdy construction allows for the spoons to dip into any of our Energy Pods and be consumed
  • Excellent cornering allows full consumption of the Pod, especially at the bottom.(No need for finger licking... yes, yes... we know some of you enjoy that!)
  • Moisture resistant spoon allows it to be extremely friendly for travel and ideal for all-weather conditions which works in synergy with the concept of Energy Pod.
  • The spoons support the FSC/SFI which allows for a system that supports healthy, carbon sequestering forests instead of harmful clear cutting. This also goes hand-in-hand with a farming practice which we are a HUGE fan of which is " Silvopastures".
  • The spoons are made in USA using sustainably logged forests in Arkansas, Idaho and Midwest.

RESOURCES

  • MASSIVE shoutout to Ecotensil for providing us with these wonderful spoons and driving a move towards a positive eco-system in the world! We really love their company, the people and what they are doing for the planet! Check them out here!

SILVOPASTURES

We will soon be having Steve Gabriel on one of our future podcasts to talk about Silvopastures, a sustainable farming practice that utilizes forage, trees and animals to regenerate farmland while cycling nutrients and sequestering carbon. You can buy his book about Silvopastures here!
