“Mom” recently had the distinct pleaure of interviewing the founders of a sustainable and unique new company, me & goji! Adam and Alexander, the “cereal guys” behind this custom, artisanal cereal that is delivered right to your doorstep, are definitely onto something eco-fabulous!
An Interview with the Founders of me & goji
Tell us about your eco-inspired company.
me & goji is the first custom cereal & granola company where you can design your own cereal from 60+ all-natural ingredients, name your creation, and upload a picture right to the label.
We are a sustainable company that believes in using its resources to benefit the environment (carbon neutral!). We currently offer green tags upon checkout to offset the emissions from shipping your cereal.
How do you choose to go green in your own life?
Since me & goji is our life, we go green everyday. We utilize post consumer waste products whenever possible, recycle all the waste from our facility and home and only use public transportation or our bikes to get around.
Guilty green pleasure?
How do I cheat on the environment? Definitely my iphone. My favorite green company is Tender Greens. A restaurant located in Southern California that sources it’s ingredients locally and adheres to organic standards. Simple, yet delicious food: http://www.tendergreensfood.com.
Can you offer any encouraging words for those with a small sustainable business?
As sustainable business practices become more mainstream, it is becoming easier and more affordable for small businesses to go green. Even if it is something as simple as recycling, take that first step and build on it. me & goji strives to be not just sustainable, but restorative. Eliminating our carbon footprint is not enough; sustainability is a parabolic process and as a business we must accept culpability for not just our employees, but humans as a race. We don’t want to be invisible; we want to be an active force in creating solutions for environmental problems. As we grow, so will our dedication to sustainability and our radius for change.
