The biggest individual impact you can make on our planet is the food you choose to eat. The truth is you get three votes for the planet every day — breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Our mission is to make it easier for everyone to eat well — to use those votes well. It’s a story of meat lovers, egg lovers and plant lovers. Of the young football player wanting protein before practice in Birmingham and the Beijing businesswoman who wants a breakfast she can feel good about.
60 Million Eggs
We are proud to announce that as of September 2020, we have sold the equivalent of more than 50 million eggs — all made from plants. Our plant-based JUST Egg uses 98% less water, has a 93% smaller carbon footprint and uses 86% less land than conventional animal sources. It is one of the most sustainable protein sources on the planet:
It adds up to real impact for our planet. We've saved about 8.7 million kgs of CO2e, 3,543 acres of land and 2.2 billion gallons of water.
The Impact Report
We’re proud of our impact so far, but it's just a start. The global population is expected to near 10 billion by 2050 and the current model for feeding the world simply won’t work. To both preserve our planet and provide nutritious food for everyone for generations to come, we need to rethink the food we eat and how we produce it.
We’re excited to share our 2020 Impact Report with all of you. It’s a peek under the lid at what’s been cooking as we work to build a more just food system.
We are now spending more time at home, with family, observing new risks and facing new anxieties. It’s during moments like these when it’s often easier to see some obvious truths. That our relationship with the planet is misaligned. That somehow we are dragging risk closer to us. That there is no natural world where the human animal is separate from all animals. That there is not human health, climate health, or animal health; there is only health. Thomas Berry, a naturalist and family farmer, said it best: “We cannot have well humans on a sick planet.”
Fostering this view of health starts with our most important choice: what we eat every day. More than anything else, this decision matters most. And it's what drives our company forward.
