In our cooking process, we use rainwater collected from our lab rooftop. We use 5 gallons of water per stockpot and save 15 gallons of municipal water per cooking cycle. Overall we save 60 gallons of water/month.
We started Fresh Press because we wanted to make sustainable paper that renourished the environment and could change the industry. Everything we do here, we keep our natural environment and human/wildlife health top of mind. We aren't perfect. No one is, but we are trying. This section details our successes and shortcomings when it comes to minimizing our environmental impact.
