Buy A Pouch & Plant A Tree
Our founders saw first-hand the devastating effects of deforestation in East Africa, as they passed whole forests that had been cut down for fuel and to make way for agriculture.
According to Annet Nakyeyune, an environmentalist at Uganda’s Makerere University, deforestation is likely to affect the region’s food security as rainfall will be erratic and floods rampant. Deforestation also has a negative impact on biodiversity and carbon sequestration.
With the help of our customers, we are fighting back by planting a tree for each pouch we sell. Together, we can restore whole forests and, with that, have a positive impact on food security, biodiversity and climate change.
With over 10,000 trees already planted, Jacked Foods is proud to be carbon negative – meaning as a company we take more carbon out of the air than we emit. To all of our of customers – thank you!
