Our sustainability journey

Sustainability is a part of our everyday decision-making

Countries of origin of our raw materials

It is very important for us that our smoothies are a truly guilt-free pleasure. Everyone can enjoy our smoothies with a clear conscience, as part of a responsible, climate-friendly and healthy lifestyle.

We only use carefully tested ingredients and we know exactly where they come from. Our smoothies are natural, and we never add sugar or additives. We compensate for all our CO2 emissions.

Our team’s wellbeing is very important to us. Many of our employees get their first experience from working life at Jungle Juice Bar. We feel very privileged to be able to make sure that they get a good start for their careers. We want to offer a workplace where everyone can feel at home and that all of us can be proud of. We believe that taking care of our team’s wellbeing is the way to make certain that a sense of caring and good energy are passed along to our customers as well.

Jungle Juice Bar is not a smoothie chain, it’s a Tribe. We feel that all Jungle Juice Bar’s customers and employees belong to this Tribe.

Fighting climate change is extremely important theme for our Tribe. Sustainability and caring are based on our Tribe trusting us. We feel it is important to be deserving of that trust.

Our sustainability journey

Sustainability is a part of our everyday decision-making. Here are a few milestones from our journey.

2010

Noora and Petteri Fagerström found Jungle Juice Bar to offer plant based healthy, nutritious and delicious smoothies.
Noora creates the recipe for Killer Bee, a smoothie including mango, pineapple, passionfruit and orange. To date, it continues to be one of our most popular products.

2011

We open the first Jungle Juice Bar at the Jumbo shopping center in Vantaa. Jungle Juice Bar starts using cups made of bioplastics for the first time.

2015

We start our charity smoothie campaigns. For each smoothie sold in the campaign, we donate 1 Euro to a selected charity organization.

2017

We start sourcing hand-made lamps from Indian village in Odisha, supporting local community and providing fair income. Each lamp is unique and made from recycled materials.

2018

We start using only bioplastic in all our cups and lids.

2019

We start using green energy in all our bars whenever possible. We are aiming with our partners to use 100% green energy by 2021.

We join the ResQ Club app in Finland to minimize food waste.

2020

We become climate neutral and start compensating all carbon emissions from our products.

We join the Karma app in Sweden to minimize food waste.

2021

We become climate positive or carbon negative. We start compensating doubly all carbon emissions from our products, thus removing more carbon dioxide from the atmosphere than we produce.

2022

We will further reduce our carbon emissions by footprint by working by emphasizing electricity and water efficient farming in our sourcing. We will also reduce emissions from packing by starting to use paper or recycled PET cups.

Jungle Juice Bar goes carbon neutral

We get all fresh and delicious fruits and berries from the nature. It is important for us to be able to give back to the Jungle!

A plant-based fresh smoothie full of vitamins and good energy is a climate act in itself. Our smoothies are good for you and good for the planet, as they have a relatively small CO2 footprint.

Yet we want to do even more! That is why we are compensating for all emissions for all smoothies sold in 2020. Carbon neutrality means that we don’t contribute to climate change.

Even that is not enough. In 2021 we will take our next step and become carbon negative and climate positive by doubly compensating for our CO2 emissions. In practice this means that we will remove more CO2 from the atmosphere than we produce.

 

We want to offer guilt-free delicious smoothies that are part of a responsible, climate-friendly lifestyle.

For our employees we want to offer a workplace of which they can be proud of.

How we calculated our carbon footprint

Our plant-based products have a relatively small carbon footprint. We have also taken other measures to minimize our footprint, such as using only green energy and biodegradable packaging. But like most companies, we still produce some carbon emissions.

Natural Resource Institute Finland (LUKE) has calculated the amount of emissions we produce, so the figures are based on independent and impartial information. The figures include all emissions produced in growing and producing our ingredients, producing bio plastic cups and straws, use of detergents, water usage, raw material and internal deliveries, energy production, smoothie making and waste.

The largest share of our emissions are generated in cultivation of the raw materials, in freezing of certain raw materials and in transportation. Transportation happens via sea or land freight and transportation emissions are calculated taken into account the country of origin of each raw material.

 

Compensating for our emissions

Our partner South Pole compensates for all emissions. We buy carbon credits according to our emissions from South Pole, and South Pole uses them in projects which remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.

 We contribute to two of South Pole’s rain forest projects: to Agrocortex Brasilia and to Kariba REDD+ Project on the border of Zimbabwe and Zambia. The Agrocortex project protects the Southwestern rainforest of the Amazon through sustainable forest stewardship and by protecting local biodiversity and communities. The Kariba project focuses on a giant wildlife corridor that protects an expansive forest, home to numerous vulnerable and endangered species.

Hand made tikau lamps

Tikau lamps found in our bars are hand made in Indian village of Odisha. Lamps are made from all natural and recycled materials. Each lamps is unique.

By buying the lamps we  support local community and provide fair income for the villagers.

We are biodegradable

All cups, lids and straws used in serving our smoothies are made from PLA plastic. They are biobased and biodegradable. PLA plastic has the smallest Co2 footprint of different plastics used by food industry at the moment. You can recycle PLA with bio waste, since it is industrially compostable.

Green, renewable energy!

We have changed to green renewable energy in all Jungle Juice Bars where we can pick the energy source ourselves. Electricity that we use is produced using wind, solar and water energy. We challenge all the rest of our partner shopping centers and landlords to change to green energy to fight against climate change.

Cocoa

We only use ethically produced organic cocoa, which comes from small family farming communities.

Strawberry

Our strawberries come from certified Finnish or Polish farmers depending on the season. Farms are under extra careful quality control regarding the soil and irrigation water.

Other berries

We always use Finnish blueberries, lingonberries and raspberries. Sea buckthorn is organic and comes from Estonia.

Ensuring food safety

We test our raw materials regularly in an independent laboratory according to our food authority approved self-monitoring plan. Customs also do regular testing of raw materials imported to Finland.
