A trio of plant-based crisps in plastic-free packets

Plastic-free and plant-based producer Source of the Earth has launched three packets of flavoursome, air-popped lentil crisps with a fully home-compostable packet.

Available in three flavours; Coconut Curry, Smoked Paprika & Chilli and Sour Cream & Chive – the vegan, air-popped lentil, chickpea and potato crisps are also gluten free and contain no added sugar.   The 24g bags are light on calories too – just 96 calories per packet.

These delicious crisps are available in Whole Foods UK and Selfridges as well as many independent retailers across the UK.

The brightly coloured packaging, made from trees grown in responsibly managed forests can be buried in home compost and promises to disintegrate within 26 weeks – leaving no trace on the planet. 

Phil Lambe, Source of the Earth creator said  “We all know the impact the food industry is having on the planet and instead of us just talking about how we can make a difference, during lockdown we had the time to do something about it.   It’s no longer good enough to create just flavoursome, healthy crisps – we’ve got to start looking at what’s good for the environment too.   Source of the Earth hopes to start a movement of ‘better for you, better for the planet’ snacks”.

The environmentally friendly crisps have been approved by the Vegan Society and the packets have been approved and certified by A Plastic Planet.
