Renewable Energy

 
  
Most of the electricity used in our homes and businesses comes from burning fossil fuels. According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency this is the leading cause of industrial air pollution. So every time a light is turned on or the air conditioner is used, harmful pollutants are released into the atmosphere. But it doesn’t have to be this way.

Renewable energy is now available to anyone, anywhere in the country and is a clean, sustainable alternative to fossil fuels. Renewable energy also helps rural farming communities and diversifies our energy supply, preserving natural resources.

Since it is physically impossible to deliver electricity straight from a renewable energy source, like a wind farm, to Lifeway, renewable energy credits make purchasing clean energy possible. Renewable energy credits ensure that the amount of electricity Lifeway uses to produce Kefir is replaced onto the grid with a renewable source, like wind power, making it cleaner for everyone.

Lifeway now purchases renewable energy credits to offset 100% of the electricity used to produce its products. This landmark effort will avoid over 2.5 million pounds of carbon dioxide pollution. This has the same impact as planting 335 acres of trees or removing 222 cars from the road.
