Do you drink Odwalla juice?

I love Odwalla juice. But I don’t love the fact that all those plastic bottles pollute our Earth.

Fortunately, Odwalla is one of those companies that with both environmental and social responsibilities.
Juice manufacturer Odwalla is based in my neck of the woods, in northern California. The company contributes to farmland conservation and keeps 99% of its fruit and vegetable waste out of the landfill.

By offering free land to local farmers, Odwalla is able to source much of its fruits and vegetables locally – benefiting both juice quality and the vitality of local communities.

Operating as a closed-loop system, the company uses an anaerobic digestion system on waste water resulting from the juicing process to reduce the amount of waste water effluents.

Odwalla provides recycling programs for its plastic bottles. They’ve also attempted to divert organic waste from landfills by selling their pulp to livestock feed. Employees are encouraged to turn off or shut down idle processing equipment, lights, fans, air compressors, and other types of energy consuming components that are not being used.

Fortunately, other companies are stepping up, too: beer producer Sierra Nevada provides feed for dairy and beef cows through the spent grain, hops and yeast collected after brewing!

Ice cream maker Häagen Dazs recently began a honey bee conservation program. Since many of its fresh fruit ingredients depend on honeybee pollination, it makes sound business sense to aid in the honey bees’ plight.
