The reliance on a cold supply chain for food is a major contributor to climate change:
40% of the global greenhouse effect is caused by emissions from food transport vehicles, i.e. gas emission from engines and refrigerant leakage.
Refrigerated vans generate 15% higher carbon dioxide and 18% higher nitrogen oxide than standard vehicles which are air pollutants that can cause headaches, asthma attacks, and more.
Cultiveat’s lettuce and tomatoes are regularly harvested and delivered to you, in non-refrigerated trucks. This reduces our carbon footprint in our effort to operate sustainably.
