We live on a beautiful planet but, as humans, we sometimes fail to take to care of it. Luckily, there are steps we can take to be better stewards—and they start with our consumption. Consciously purchasing from brands that are eco-friendly makes this world a better place for everyone. And one such Canadian brand is Haumana, a maker of natural energy bars that are the perfect tasty, nutritious snack.

Here are five ways that Haumana strives to care for the planet and our bodies:

1. Award-winning packaging

Haumana is the first company in Canada to sell all of its bars without individual packaging. That means that last year, they saved 250,000 individual wrappers from landfills. Each bag holds six bars and is fully biodegradable.

2. Delicious vegan, gluten-free, organic ingredients

All of the ingredients used in Haumana’s energy bars are vegan and gluten-free, plus many of them are certified organic. The best part? Even though the bars are filled with healthful ingredients, they actually taste good. Win-win.

3. No added sugar thanks to the Baobab fruit

Instead of added sugar, Haumana uses a special fruit from the Baobab tree, which is also known as the tree of life. Baobab is a superfood that is rich in antioxidants, vitamin C and natural fibre. It has many health benefits including preventing spikes and dips in energy throughout the day.

4. Reduction of food waste

Haumana is committed to fighting food waste at the source. Every energy bar is handcrafted in Haumana’s small workshop in Montreal and is made to order, which means there aren’t leftovers that end up in the trash.

5. Community values

By sourcing Baobab fruit from Senegal, Haumana supports more than 20 women and their families, helping them gain financial independence.

The choices you make every day about what you buy can make a difference. Next time you’re looking for a healthful snack that’s eco-friendly (and has a social conscience), consider Haumana. The starter box is $59.95 and contains 18 bars: six chocolate energy bars, six classic energy bars and six energy bars made from the monthly discovery flavour. (Haumana has a different flavour each month, sometimes in partnership with other brands like Arc’teryx or Faro Roasting Houses.) It’s a delicious snack that you can feel good about.
