Here are some of the things we've done to be more sustainable. You're always welcome to share your feedback and tell us how we can do better.
We use only FSC certified paper when necessary and we’ve partnered with a local sustainable printing store with many alternatives to choose from.
While we avoid unnecessary plastic, some products do come in plastic packaging. We help our partners find more sustainable packaging while also trying to work with brands that commit to reducing single-use plastic.
Our items are often delivered in packaging that can be reused again, or even returned to us. We encourage all recipients to reuse or return your packaging.
Some deliveries are done in an electric van which reduces emissions while on the road. We'll continue to find ways to green our deliveries and logistics.
We participate in plenty of talks and workshops to talk about food security and sustainability. We’re also working with various organisations. Watch this space!
The products we curate are from brands that have shown a commitment to supporting communities and the environment. These are also sustainable alternatives that taste great.
We're seeing an increasing global urban population, supply chain disruptions and the effects of climate change. As young parents, we worry about our children's food future. What will future generations eat?
There are many food solutions today that seek to address such pressing global issues. These include urban farming, alternative protein and upcycled food. Since the pandemic, more home-based businesses have emerged to provide for their communities.
With these local and sustainable food sources, we can better ensure our food security.
Urban Origins supports Singapore’s “30 by 30” goal to provide for 30% of our nutritional needs by 2030. We know our community cares about where their food comes from, and the origin of what they consume.
Our food producers and partners place great care in their craft. They are innovative entrepreneurs driven to perfect their products for conscious consumers. Many of them navigate daily professional and personal challenges too.
You’ll get to find out more about each producer and realise what goes into getting the food to your plate. Together we can contribute towards a more resilient food system that sustains future generations.
