New pea-based milk uses 93 percent less water than dairy equivalent

Comments Off on New pea-based milk uses 93 percent less water than dairy equivalent

A new dairy-free milk is blowing people away with its minimal eco-footprint , and a calcium content that puts cow’s milk to shame. Ripple Foods is rolling out a plant-based milk made from peas with the mission to educate the public on the health and environmental impacts of the stuff you usually pour over your cereal. The Silicon Valley start-up has created a recipe for milk made from peas that has the same mouthfeel and taste as cow’s milk, but with improved nutritional value. Ripple Foods claims their product provides 50 percent more calcium (and half the sugar) than its dairy-based counterpart and eight times the protein of almond milk. Peas are easily and plentifully grown and also contain vitamins and minerals that dairy can lack, such as vitamins K, C, and B1, manganese, dietary fiber, copper, phosphorus, and folate. Related: Ben & Jerry’s launches vegan ice cream flavors Ripple takes on both the dairy and almond industries, slamming their heavy use of water in production and offering a healthier, more eco-friendly milk alternative. Compared to dairy’s 60 gallons of water per glass and almond milk’s 20 gallons, Ripple’s pea milk only uses 1/2 gallon per glass. Its Original, Unsweetened, Vanilla, and Chocolate flavors even come in 100 percent post-consumer recycled plastic containers. Right now Ripple plant-based milk is only available in select Whole Foods stores, yet with $13.6 million invested so far we can be sure its reach will continue to grow. + Ripple Foods Via  Tech Crunch Images via Ripple Foods

How can I make a solar oven reusing and recycling things?

Aside from the rain we had pretty much all day yesterday, it’s been a lovely start to spring – I’ve had the washing out on the line on a good number of occasions now, we’ve had a few breakfasts on the sunny balcony with the animals and the cats have been enjoying the novelty of sitting both in sunshine and in the house – something that’s never happened to them before – and they’ve been getting toasty warm … which made me think “what else can I make toasty warm in the sunshine?” (Plus, we got our gas bill through yesterday for the cold winter – even relying on just the woodburning stove in the evenings and wearing lots of layers, it’s still kerching!kerching! Trying out a solar oven has been on my to-do list for a while – but they’re expensive and hard to get in the UK so it makes sense to make my own instead. There are how-tos for making them out of cardboard boxes and aluminium foil and better how-tos to make them more efficient – but I wondered if anyone had any suggestions of things to reuse or recycle for the materials involved in such a venture. And does anyone have any ideas of ways to make things a little more permanent/weatherproof
