Good For You and The Earth!
It’s more important now than ever to strive for a low-waste kitchen, and mushrooms are just the food to help. You’re not only able to use the entire mushroom in your cooking, creating zero food waste, but mushrooms are grown sustainably, with minimal resources, creating a tiny carbon footprint.
Producing 1 lb. of mushrooms:
1.0 kwh of electricity
1.8 gallons of water
0.7 lbs. of CO2 equivalents
Mushrooms require a small amount of land to grow. 1 acre = 1 million lbs. of mushrooms
Not going to use your mushrooms in time? Cut back on food waste by slicing, sautéing and freezing any mushrooms you’re not ready to use. Frozen mushrooms are good for up to one month. Note: Never freeze uncooked mushrooms.
