It’s not easy to preserve our organic muffins without the help of plastic or artificial preservatives. But after a lot of thinking and testing, we’ve come up with a solution!
By freezing the muffins fresh out of the oven and packing them in a compostable bag inside a cardboard box, they manage to perfectly keep their texture and flavor after thawing, for whenever you get the munchies! The compostable bag is certified with the OK industrial compost certification of TUV Austria, which guarantees that they are compostable in industrial composting plants.
You can reuse it as a garbage bag for organic waste. The cardboard box is certified with the FSC certification for responsible forest management and can be easily recycled in the same way that any other piece of cardboard.
Intensive animal farming is one of the main contributors to climate change. Every single day, all around the world, millions of animals are raised to be slaughtered in big industrial farm complexes. This mass production and consumption accounts for a significant percentage of the greenhouse gases emitted into the atmosphere (mainly due to the methane present in cow dung), the deforestation and desertification of the planet (because of the intensive farming of forage crops designed to feed the vast amounts of cattle), and the pollution and abuse of water supplies (toxic waste and manure coming from farms gets carried into the water system and contributes to the destruction of the marine ecosystem).
A plant-based diet is not just the only ethical choice when it comes to non-human animals and other species, but it’s also better for your health and that of the ecosystems that guarantee our life and survival in this planet.
Organic agriculture is a holistic management system that eliminates the use of synthetic and chemical inputs in the soil and works towards environmentally and socially sustainable production. It promotes biodiversity, respects biological cycles and increases soil fertility. Not only organic agriculture is better for the planet and all its creatures, but organic food is also better to our bodies and health. For these reasons, La mala leche works with organic ingredients and products.
Deliveries from our online store are 100% plastic-free: when it comes to our muffins, we use cardboard boxes for the packaging, and kraft paper as filler. The items from the concept store come wrapped up in surplus newspapers that weren’t sold, so that they have a new life before being recycled.
