Sustainability Practices

Companies have an obligation to adopt practices and policies that reduce their environmental and social impact. Sustainability practices allow companies to provide high-quality products without negatively impacting individuals, communities, and the environment. According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), “Sustainability is based on a simple principle: Everything that we need for our survival and well-being depends, either directly or indirectly, on our natural environment.” LifeSpring Home Nutrition prioritizes sustainability practices in every department, from meal preparation to delivery routes. 

What Are Sustainability Practices?

Every company practices sustainability using different methods. Food companies can enrich communities and the environment by making more environmentally friendly decisions. According to the Department of Energy (DOE), “Reduce, reuse, and recycle are the core principles of wise resource use . . . these principals preserves and protects natural resources by reducing landfill waste, energy consumption, and pollution.” Sustainability is often about reducing the use of unnecessary materials while still providing a high-quality product for individuals in the community. 

Some examples of sustainability practices utilized by LifeSpring Home Nutrition include: 

  • Keeping digital files instead of printing large amounts of paperwork 
  • Reducing the amount and size of packaging 
  • Using more environmentally friendly packaging materials 
  • Purchasing ingredients from local and environmentally friendly sources

The way meals are prepared and delivered impacts the environment. Sustainability practices ensure every department makes ethical decisions about disposing of or reusing certain materials. LifeSpring Home Nutrition values transparency, integrity, empathy, and sustainability. Staff members practice these values every day as they provide life-changing home-delivered meals.

Eco-Friendly Policies and Sustainability Practices

Shipment policies and food by-products directly impact the environment. Home-delivered meals increase environmental sustainability by making ethical choices when planning meal packaging, food sourcing, and driver routes. According to the EPA, “Sustainable Management of Food is an approach that seeks to reduce wasted food and its associated impacts over the entire life cycle, starting with the use of natural resources, manufacturing, sales, consumption, and ending with decisions on recovery or final disposal.” LifeSpring Home Nutrition chooses eco-friendly and sustainable options whenever possible. 

Sourcing Ingredients Responsibly

Responsibly sourcing ingredients means looking at the business practices and values of companies selling nutritional ingredients. Whenever possible, LifeSpring Home Nutrition purchases locally grown ingredients. The meal preparation team focuses on ensuring the final meal products have the highest level of nutrition. To ensure clients receive the best quality meals every week, ingredients are purchased from a variety of ethical sources. LifeSpring Home Nutrition considers food quality, employee treatment, and sustainability when choosing where to buy food products. The entire meal creation and planning process is positively influenced by sourcing ingredients responsibly.

Implementing Recycling Initiatives

Recycling is a large part of sustainability. According to the NIH Environmental Management System (NEMS), “By reducing the amount of trash produced and reusing existing materials, we can all make a difference by protecting the environment, conserving natural resources, and sustaining the planet for future generations.” LifeSpring Home Nutrition uses recyclable packaging materials to reduce waste and promote sustainability. 

Reducing Packaging Waste

Each meal is stored in lightweight, easy-to-reheat containers. The weekly meal deliveries are packaged in slim, well-insulated envelopes. Ice and dry ice inside the envelopes ensure food remains at optimal temperatures throughout the delivery process without the need for bulky boxes or potentially harmful gel packs.

How Does LifeSpring Home Nutrition Incorporate Environmentally Conscious Business Practices?

The environment is directly impacted by business practices in the community. Companies are responsible for limiting their environmental impact and taking steps to create sustainable products. Sustainable meal delivery services positively impact the community and environment by reducing food waste and preventing disease.

Some of the environmentally-conscious business practices at LifeSpring Home Nutrition include: 

  • Only working with ethical companies to create custom packaging materials
  • Always looking for new ways to improve relationships within the community 
  • Addressing needs and concerns in an environmentally friendly way 
  • Optimizing delivery routes to cut down on emissions from delivery vehicles

According to Cathleen Anthony, M.B.A., owner of LifeSpring Home Nutrition, “Our goal is to give quality services and meals to those who never thought they could afford a Dietitian or specialized meals. LifeSpring does everything themselves from the RD assessments with our RD’s, making the meals in our kitchen to delivering the meals with our drivers to manage quality and keep integrity of the service and product by overseeing the entire process ourselves.” By keeping all departments in-house, including meal delivery, LifeSpring Home Nutrition can adopt more effective sustainability practices. 

Prioritizing the Health and Well-Being of Individuals and Communities

LifeSpring Home Nutrition educates people to ensure they make informed decisions about their diet and overall health. Every person deserves to be treated with respect and dignity. Clients are given control over their meal choices to ensure they have access to comforting, delicious, and familiar foods. By meeting the needs of individuals in the community, LifeSpring Home Nutrition strengthens families and reduces healthcare costs. Sustainability practices allow the company to continue growing and making positive changes for people in Orange County, California. Offering tailored meal plans fills some of the gaps in healthcare, reducing the environmental impact of sickness and disease.

Sustainability practices allow companies to positively impact the environment, individuals, and the local community. LifeSpring Home Nutrition focuses on sustainability in every department to ensure clients receive the best products without unnecessary food or material waste.

I had a catastrophic event requiring a long hospital stay and at discharge my HMO offered Lifespring meal services. Initially, I was offered a puree diet and then as I improved a regular diet. Staff were kind, patient, and their supervisor, Christina was extremely accommodating. This is an amazing company who goes the extra mile to ensure patients receive their meals promptly. The food is delicious with a variety of meals. I would highly recommend Lifespring.

Balanced meals excellent customer service. Thank you
I've been receiving Lifespring meals for the past several years. I find them to be fresh, convenient, and delicious! The meals are both balanced and nutritious, and, because they are prepared fresh, and then flash frozen; all one needs is a microwave! Delivery is prompt and courteous, and if ever you want to make a change, the friendly office staff is available by phone. Thank you, Lifespring! 🤗😘
