ALL ABOUT UPCYCLING
Dear Mother Earthers,
Honoring and celebrating the Earth is our way of life and we recognize that for you, it is, too.
On Earth Day, our home planet is placed at the heart of things. On this day, more and more individuals, organizations, and communities tune-in to add their voices to the growing movements forwarding sustainability, climate action, and stewardship of the Earth’s finite resources.
Take Two is doing our part to create a healthy home planet by utilizing upcycled spent grain to craft our products, reducing food waste, and championing circularity as the roadmap to a sustainable future.
WHAT IS UPCYCLING?
Over 8 billion pounds of spent grain go to waste annually. By diverting spent grain from becoming livestock feed or going into landfills, you’re helping us upcycle — and give a second chance to — a nutritious food ingredient that would otherwise be discarded.
WHAT’S THE IMPACT?
Each bottle of Barleymilk diverts 1 pound of spent grain from going to waste.
We’re on track to upcycle 500,000 pounds of spent grain this year.
CALCULATE YOUR IMPACT
Did you know you can estimate your carbon footprint? Our friends at U.C. Berkeley have developed a simple and fun-to-use greenhouse gas emissions calculator that measures the impact of transportation, food, goods, and services, as well as offers insightful ideas for reducing emissions in daily life.
