Our Organic Commitment
We’re committed to organic here at Uncle Matt’s. It’s in our name, it’s what we know and it’s what we believe is important for you and the environment. We make this commitment every day from the way we farm to the ingredients we use to how we package our juices. Health and sustainability are important now and for future generations. What this means:
USDA Certified Organic
Organic farming is about farming in harmony with nature. It encourages the coexistence of beneficial insects, wildlife, birds and soil organisms. The cultivation of healthy soil and crop rotation keep farmland healthy, while chemical abstinence preserves the ecosystem. We’re proud to display our USDA certified organic seal.
Glyphosate Residue Free
Our products do not contain glyphosate. We’re the first juice company in the world to be certified Glyphosate Residue Free by the Detox Project. One of the qualifications to being certified organic is that soil must not be treated with any prohibitive substances, like glyphosate (the active ingredient in RoundUp), for at least three years. The Detox Project takes this a step further by testing for any residual glyphosate that might be present in the soil from before the three-year mark. We’re proud to grow citrus from soil that is certified glyphosate residue free.
Our bottles are PET #1, not 3, 6, or 7. PET #1 is the most recyclable form of plastic and the safest for food and juices. It also does not contain the harmful and dangerous chemical called Bisphenol A (BPA), like some other plastics. We’re proud to be BPA free and encourage you to recycle your empty juice bottles.
We’re committed to ingredient transparency. Our ingredients were thoughtfully selected and follow the health and sustainable standards in which we hold our own citrus. We’re proud to be truly clean-label as we use organic, better-for-you ingredients throughout our beverages.
Carbon Neutral Shipping
We’re doing our part to reduce our carbon footprint. We’ve partnered with Route to cover the cost to neutralize shipping emissions when customers select this option at checkout. When customers shop with us and select package protection, they’re automatically taking instant climate action – no donation required.
Moreover, Route has partnered with Patch, a carbon credit marketplace, to facilitate the purchase of carbon credits to neutralize your emissions. Carbon credits represent a certified unit of carbon removal or avoidance delivered by environmental projects that we can purchase to naturally remove carbon from the air. These are high integrity carbon removal projects that are vetted and certified by organizations like Gold Standard, Verra, Climate Action Reserve and The American Carbon Registry.
We source our Uncle Matt’s Organic swag with earth-friendly best practices in mind, too! Our t-shirts are made from organic cotton and our tumblers are BPA free. We also offer reusable canvas and cooler bags to encourage recycling by using these instead of plastic bags at the grocery store. Now you can feel good proudly sporting your Uncle Matt’s Organic sustainable swag.
As we innovate, we look for ways to continue doing better by the Earth. We maintain our commitments as we create new products, and we continue to look for more sustainable opportunities in our business.
