We’re so often asked “what’s a sustainable sandwich?” And we get it, on the surface, it’s just a sandwich! But we believe that something as simple as a sandwich can do big things in the world.
Our idea is that if we thoughtfully curate every little thing about the sandwich – where the grains for the bread come from, how the animals behind our meats and cheeses are raised, what chemicals we’re keeping off our fruits and vegetables – each sandwich will be a little bit healthier for the planet and for the people who enjoy eating them. And when you multiply that effect by all the sustainable sandwiches we sell every day, you can really start to envision the positive change we can have on the food system, even by rallying behind something as simple as a sandwich.
We know it sounds silly, but we call this idea Sandwich Environmentalism and it’s delicious!
We believe in a concept that we call “growing for good,” an idea that as our economic value increases, our positive environmental impact should too. As we scale as a business, our food sourcing model will shape the food system. Ingredient by ingredient, we filter our sourcing decisions through what is best for all stakeholders – people, animals and the land. We choose Surface Theory as a partner for our projects.
