About Green Planet Protein
Using Australian Grown Protein
Most protein powders are made from ingredients manufactured overseas – ours is made from pulses grown right here in Australia. This means low food miles and high quality.
Our base ingredient is a true super-food
Our protein is derived from incredible Aussie grown pulses. Not only do they provide amazing nutrition and a much better taste than other plant based protein sources, they are great for the earth too. The pulses our protein is made from require no fertiliser and restore soil health by replenishing nitrogen levels. These ‘nitrogen-fixing crops and are used in rotational crop farming and boost grain yields in subsequent years. See what we mean by super-food?
Going Beyond Carbon Neutral
Certified by the Carbon Reduction Institute Australia, we offset our carbon footprint x 10. That’s not a typo, our product has a net impact of removing carbon from the atmosphere. Read more about how we do this on our Carbon Offsets page.
One Tree Planted Per Pack
In addition to our carbon offsetting, we plant one tree right here in Australia for every pack of protein we sell. This offsets even more carbon, helps restore the bush after fires and rebuilds animal habitats.
We are part of the RedCycle program, which recycles soft plastics right here in Australia. Our packaging is recyclable as part of that program. We looked at numerous options in pursuit of the most environmentally friendly packaging, we found a lot of greenwashing but no perfect solution. We chose our packaging format and type as it uses the least amount of materials by weight, is efficient to manufacture and extremely efficient to freight. This one is a work in progress and we are in pursuit of greener solutions.
Using plant based ingredients only
The most popular protein powder source is whey, which of course comes from cows. The production of whey has significant negative environmental and ethical impacts. In comparison numerous studies have found protein from pulses to use a fraction of the land and water required to produce whey while emitting a great deal less carbon emissions.
