Sustainability

Carbon Emissions

We understand how valuable clean air is to our orchards, our growers, and our planet. That’s precisely why we at Blue Diamond are proud to produce a sustainable product that allows us to lessen our environmental impact while also helping to rejuvenate the atmosphere. Our almondmilk is successfully produced with far less carbon emissions than other milks; including dairy milk, soy milk, oat milk, and others*. In fact, almondmilk produces 78% less carbon emissions than dairy specifically*. In the coming years, we will remain dedicated to being as efficient as possible and continuing to reduce our carbon emissions.
