LOVE Our MOTHER.
One of my values as an artist + baker is in doing whatever I can to help take care of Mother Earth. Here is what we do at Rawmona's Kitchen to help our waters stay cleaner, our soils healthier, our animals happier and our plans + flowers more vibrant.
ORGANIC, NON-GMO INGREDIENTS
The heavy use of agro-chemicals and their discharge and runoff of polluted effluent really pollutes our waters and our air. Our animals then consume this contaminated water, and sometimes, ours is contaminated too. Consuming produce + ingredients that do not have chemicals or pesticides is far less harmful to our environment + our health, and we support farmers that want to protect nature as well.
The less processed we keep things, not only is it better for our health, but also for the environment. We do not use any artificial flavorings or colorings. Less machines + less chemicals = a cleaner world.
Biodegradable + Compostable SpoonS
We buy these spoons because 'upon disposal, biodegradable products are capable of being broken down by biological microorganisms, without harming the environment. Compostable products will naturally degrade into nutrient-rich organic materials when disposed of with other compostable items in limited areas where facilities exist, leaving no visible or toxic residue.'*
Say no to plastic.
Jars you can Reuse (or Get a Discount for!)
Instead of using plastic or any other material you will most likely throw away (or maybe recycle), you can wash and reuse our jars at home. There is an endless number of things you can do with them: store food, keep small items like pins, buttons, etc.
If you bring them back to us, we give you a 50¢ discount off your next purchase.
BIODEGRADABLE + UNBLEACHED MUFFIN CUPS
Same as our spoons, our muffin cups are biodegradable. They are made using paper from FSC certified forests, and are unbleached and totally chlorine free. 'Since no chlorine is used for bleaching, no chlorine is dumped into our lakes, rivers and streams.'*
UNBLEACHED PARCHMENT PAPER
Our parchment paper is unbleached, non-toxic and biodegradable. They company we buy from is Sustainable Forestry Initiative Certified + CFPA Certified Totally Chlorine Free.
