First off, we are providing an exceptional tasting single-serve coffee in an eco-friendly and ethical format that has never been done before. Second, we are tackling the lack of equality in the industry by ensuring that LGBTQ, BIPOC, and women are placed in leadership roles at Nostalgia. Third, we are working to rid the industry of poor pay, high turnover, and poverty. We lead by example and provide our team with a thriving wage and our producers a thriving rate.  Lastly, we are addressing the global climate crisis by making sustainability a crucial factor in every decision we make.

Max Elder: Delicious Food That is Better For the People and the Environment

Max: Thanks for having me, Spiffy! Everyday I'm working on making delicious food better for people and the planet. We all love eating meat, but unfortunately meat doesn't love us back. The way we farm animals for food turns out to be pretty harmful to our planet, and those of us who live in the United States continue to eat more and more of it every year. It turns out, meat doesn't necessarily need to come from animals. At Nowadays, we make meat from plants (from yellow peas, in fact!). Our plant-based meat uses less land and water and emits less carbon than meat made from animals. This way, we can feed more and more hungry mouths with tasty food while minimizing its impact on the planet (and save some animals too).
