With sustainability at the heart of all we do, we believe that caring for yourself and the environment go hand-in-hand.
Join us on our sustainable mission to make a difference, one nutrient-packed scoop at a time.
At KOS, sustainability isn't just a buzzword. It's a way of life. We know that making eco-friendly choices is important to our customers, so here are some of our commitments to sustainability we’re proud of:
Nature Powered refers to the idea that natural foods, particularly plant-based foods, can provide the energy, nutrients, and sustenance our bodies need to function optimally. This concept emphasizes the importance of consuming whole, minimally processed foods grown sustainably and free from harmful additives and chemicals.
KOS stands by this idea of nature powered because we believe that plant-based eating is beneficial for our health and the planet. Plant-based diets have been shown to contribute to a more sustainable food system by reducing greenhouse gas emissions, conserving water, and preserving biodiversity.
Our ingredients are organically produced by responsibly managed farms using sustainable practices. Our products are made without hormones, antibiotics, pesticides, artificial sweeteners, colors, and GMOs. We’re committed to USDA organic certification because Organic farming is an important tool in our fight against the climate crisis since healthy soil is better able to capture carbon from the air.
The KOS formulations are an infusion of essential nutrients and minerals—but not the kind cooked up in a lab. This is energy produced naturally through the sun, air, water, and soil. Plant energy. The one that reduces greenhouse gas emissions and promotes a sustainable future.
At KOS, we like to give our jars a new lease on life. Instead of dumping them into landfills, we upcycle them into exciting and creative projects!
KOS partners with some of today’s most swingingly impactful organizations to raise the bar and highlight the importance of conservation, ethics, and employment practices.
While protein powder can be a great way to supplement your diet, it's important to be aware of its environmental impact.
Protein powder made from animal-based sources (whey and casein) requires significant resources such as land, water, and energy for production.
The production of these protein powders also generates greenhouse gas emissions contributing to climate change.
Additionally, like all consumer products, protein powder packaging and shipping further add to their carbon footprint.
Consumers can reduce the carbon footprint of protein powder by choosing plant-based sources.
That's where KOS comes in. We're all about making sustainable, earth-friendly choices that benefit you and the planet. That's why our protein powders are exclusively plant-based. Not only are plant-based proteins easier to produce, but they also leave a smaller carbon footprint than animal-based alternatives.
So, next time you reach for protein powder, remember that making a better-informed choice can make all the difference for a healthier you and a healthier Mother Earth.
We believe that everyone can make a difference in protecting the environment. That's why we've put together some practical tips to help you reduce your environmental impact when using products:
🌎 Use a reusable shaker bottle instead of disposable plastic ones. This can help reduce the amount of plastic waste your protein shakes generate.
🌎 Choose plant-based milk instead of dairy milk when making your protein shakes. Dairy farming significantly impacts the environment, and plant-based milk alternatives require fewer production resources.
🌎 Upcycle KOS jars - From sandcastle buckets to organizers for your space, break out those empty KOS bottles and your greens thumb to show Mother Earth some extra love.
At KOS, our goal is unapologetically lofty: we want to feed the world. Yes, you heard it right.
We know that food production can be remodeled literally from the ground up and mother nature has given us enough to feed 3.5 billion people.
In our mission to feed the world, we’ve partnered with Feeding America and started a 10 million meals project. This means that every unit of KOS purchased will help provide a meal to a local family in need through the food bank nearest you in partnership with Feeding America. We have come to 3, 265, 614 meals so far.
