Since the beginning of his time here on Earth, Branden has always known that he can turn to his Daddy for rough play and treats, while Mommy will be the one for reading books, museum visits, and healthy habits. But because being healthy while living an on-the-go city life isn’t always easy, I as Branden’s Mama am so thankful to have been introduced to Eden Juices, a naturally different juice for health conscious Mamas and their offspring.
As soon as we bring these little babies of ours into the world, we want to protect them from everything, and it starts with making sure they are healthy and have a strong immune system to fight off anything bad that could harm them. At my house, we juice often on the weekend to fill our bodies with the health benefits of fruits and vegetables, but only because the weekends bring extra time to deal with the prep and cleanup of making your own (along with time for shopping for those fresh ingredients!)
With Earth Day approaching this week, and April being Earth Month, I’m happy so share this environmentally friendly company that uses their line of juices to fight aspects of our culture that threaten diversity, conservation, and overall health. Eden Juices is revolutionizing the way that we look at juice, making better choices accessible and providing the perfect juice for health conscious Mamas.
So what makes Eden Juices different? Welp…get ready for some cold hard facts that just might make you think differently the next time you make a meal or go grocery shopping:
Food Waste – In the U.S., we throw away close to 40% of the food we grow. Not always because the food has gone bad, but because it doesn’t meet the cosmetic standards we have set for how we think fresh foods should look.
Access – Over 15 million American kids go hungry every day and don’t have access to nutritious food. The worst part is that nutritious food is available, but it’s just ending up in landfills instead of in the hands of those who need it. (FeedingAmerica.org)
Overfed and Undernourished – More than 2 in 3 adults are considered to be overweight or obese along with more than one-third of children and adolescents. And fewer than 35% of Americans are eating the recommended daily servings of fruits and vegetables. So, those in the U.S. who aren’t going hungry are overfed yet undernourished. (cdc.gov) Both of these unfortunate facts combine to make for a rather unhealthy population in our country.
Yes, these are problems that obviously can’t be solved overnight, but, as a Mama, I’m willing to do whatever to help! Eden Juices has set out to make a difference through their cold pressed juices by limiting the amount of food wasted in the U.S. by using produce that consumers and retailers usually throw away for strictly cosmetic reasons. They’ll also make nutrient-rich food more accessible to those who struggle to get nutritious foods and those who want a simple way to improve their diets.
Eden Juices NEEDS YOUR HELP! In order to put this awesome innovation into production for all of us to enjoy, they have launched a kickstarter campaign TODAY that they need help with funding. You can easily visit drinkeden.com to donate and they are offering amazing prizes for those who contribute. (Think free juice cleanses, and more!)
Happy Earth Month from Eden Juices & Project Motherhood!
