We are committed to positive environmental practices and a low carbon footprint. Taking care of our planet is as important to us as helping nourish our families and yours with quality, delicious beverages. And have made a number of pledges to this, including:

It Starts from our Core Belief & Passion

A father & daughter team that continually inspires each other to do better and be better. Making conscious business choices to be better for the environment was never a question, but an internal mandate and focus. When not at the office you can often find Autumn out hiking or diving and Ron enjoying the waterfront of Nova Scotia. At GnuSanté we strive to make the world a better place for this generation & the next.

Small Batch Production

No matter how much we grow, we are committed to small scale production for a number of reasons. It reduces product waste and water waste. It ensure fresh, high quality product and has a low environmental footprint & impact. As we expand and grow into new markets, it allows us to open more small production pods in different communities, keeping a focus on local and supporting the communities we are in.

why we love flexible pouches

We deliberated on what packaging to use and decided on pouches for the main reason that they have the lowest carbon footprint and are the most environmentally friendly out of all packaging options.

Pouches use 28x less material than glass and 5x less than plastic bottles. Less raw materials means less waste, less energy used and reduced carbon emissions throuahout the lifecycle of the pouch - 75% less energy than Aluminum!


Plus - they are super convenient! Easy to ship to vou (no stress of breakina). Easy for vou to pack in lunches, hikes, camping or any time you are on the go.

Don't forget to recycle.
