Ethos & Values

Going back to a simpler life is not a step backward.

YVON CHOUINARD, FOUNDER OF PATAGONIA

We have the capacity to create a remarkably different economy: one that can restore ecosystems and protect the environment while bringing forth innovation, prosperity, meaningful work, and true security.

PAUL HAWKEN

If it can’t be reduced, repaired, rebuilt, refurbished, refinished, resold, recycled or composted, then it should be restricted, redesigned or removed from production.

PETER SEEGER

Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It’s not

DR. SEUSS, THE LORAX

If we want to move towards a low-polluting, sustainable society, we need to get consumers to think about their purchases.

DAVID SUZUKI

How could we ever have believed that it was a good idea to grow our food with poisons?

Local

Currently, 50-70% of the produce in your jar comes from organic Texas farms – as we grow, we strive towards 100%.

• When you bite into a fresh, local carrot & taste all that flavor… What is it you’re tasting? Literally, more nutrients.

• The longer your food spends off the plant, the less nutritious it becomes. Thanks to local, organic farmers, you can enjoy the freshest, tastiest & most nutrient dense ingredients.

Plant-Based

Our plant-based (vegan) menu consists of minimally processed vegetables, fruits, legumes, nuts, seeds, herbs & whole grains. It excludes all animal products, focusing on the green instead.

• With over 150+ types of produce on the menu, a jar a day is the easiest way to boost your fiber intake. Who says plant-based needs to be boring?

• Animal products contribute over 80% of greenhouse gas emissions associated with food production1. These plant-based meals are good for you & the planet, too!

Organic

Organic ingredients means there’s no pesticides, herbicides or chemical sprays in your food, ever.

• With us, your food is always organic. If we ever source an unorganic item (which is rare to none), you’ll be informed immediately

• Farming organic enriches the soil, which cultivates the most vibrant, nutrient dense produce. Better for you, better for the planet.

Seasonal

Texas’ growing season is year around. For this reason, our menu changes with the seasons.

• Leafy greens & root vegetables in the winter. Tomatoes, cucumbers & fresh fruits in the summer. Your tummy will never get bored.

Zero Waste

Say sayonara to the idea of “single-use”. With PTYD, all packaging is reused – making trash a thing of the past.

• Did you know that every piece of plastic ever produced still exists today? Enjoy a seamless, zero waste experience with your delivery & collections.

• 40% of food grown in the US is thrown away2. PTYD food scraps are composted to become healthy, organic soil. In reality, food waste isn’t waste – it’s a resource.
