62.6% Reduction of fossil fuel consumption. If the primary package was switched from a PET bottle to a bio HDPE bottle to annually deliver 60,000 units, fossil fuel consumption could be reduced by nearly 135,000 MJ—equivalent to nearly 22 barrels of oil! 22%
Reduction of water consumption. Making this packaging change for an annual volume of 60,000 bottles saves about 227,350 gallons of water. This is equivalent to saving enough water for 36 people to shower daily for an entire year!
This project connects Climate Collaborative committed companies to Trayak, who uses a cost-effective, streamlined life cycle analysis (LCA) to quickly benchmark existing packaging and develop climate-improved alternatives.
Bhoomi, Climate Collaborative, and Trayak worked together to collect packaging system information (materials, conversion processes, masses, etc.) and perform the analysis with Trayak’s LCA tool, EcoImpact-COMPASS (Comparative Packaging Assessment).
Switching to a bio HDPE bottle showed a plethora of benefits for Bhoomi.

The sugar trade was built on the back of slavery and oppression and fueled colonization, which disenfranchised communities of color across the world like never before. The sugarcane industry buoyed the United States’ early economy, but it did so at a horrific cost. According to an article in The Guardian by Debbie Weingarten, “the forced labor of hand-cutting, grinding, and boiling cane was excruciating and dangerous. People said there was brutality in cotton, but death in cane.”
It is impossible to deny that the long-lasting effects of slavery and the sugarcane industry affect Southern farmers still to this day. In an industry that has long discriminated against Black farmers, racism is still an everyday reality. In 1983, there were approximately 60 Black sugarcane farmers in Louisiana. Today, there are only four. As a result of discriminatory practices, the Center for American Progress documents that African-American farmers currently make up less than 2 percent of all farmers in the United States.
Here at Bhoomi, we are committed to working with Black sugarcane farmers to support fair and regenerative agriculture practices and address equitable economies for justice. You can find our farming partners on Instagram:
