Harmless Harvest Aims for 50% Carbon Reduction by 2025
Harmless Harvest, known for delivering the first-ever minimally processed organic coconut water in the United States, is now striving to become a carbon-neutral corporation. The eco-conscious company is set to achieve a 50% reduction in greenhouse gases by 2025. The progressive producer offers a variety of organic, ethically sourced coconut products, including coconut waters, smoothie drinks, and plant-based yogurts made without pesticides or synthetic fertilizers.
Each Harmless Harvest product begins with ethically harvested, organic Nam Hom coconuts from Thailand. The organization uses a unique ecosystem-based business model as it seeks to enrich and regenerate Thai communities from which the fragrant coconuts are grown. The plant-based company is committed to sustainable sourcing, social accountability, and fair trade practices. Harmless Harvest’s goal is to create exceptional products while minimizing harm—it’s basically in the name. The coconut company also prides itself on meeting rigorous standards for environmental sustainability and takes extensive measures to ensure fair labor practices. Harmless Harvest products don the Fair for Life certification, a third-party process that ensures commitment to social accountability and fair trade.
While coconut water was the first tasty product from this brand, the eco corporation now offers coconut-based smoothies and a variety of drinkable and spoonable yogurt alternatives. Don’t let the name fool you, these yogurts are anything but alternative. The naturally cultured products are made with organic, hand-scooped coconut that’s pureed for a creamy smooth texture not often found in plant-based yogurts. The live and active cultures supply these products with gut-healthy probiotics. Harmless Harvest keeps its ingredients simple—think: organic cane sugar, organic tapioca starch, and natural flavors. No artificial flavors or gums here! Consumers can find the dairy-free yogurts in plain, vanilla, strawberry, and blueberry varieties. Each packaged yogurt container supplies less than 100 calories and packs major tang. Use the plain variety in cooking, whip up a vanilla yogurt parfait with fruit and granola, or pair a berry yogurt with any meal for a nutritious treat.

During her studies to become a registered dietitian, Anja—a longtime vegetarian—transitioned to a vegan diet. Living in Kalamazoo, Michigan at the time (Go Broncos!), she met Maggie and Tammie through VegOut Kalamazoo (one of VegOut’s first focus cities) and began collaborating with the duo. When she’s not writing about new vegan eats, practicing as a pediatric clinical dietitian, and virtually coaching fellow plant-based eaters, you can find her creating veg-centric recipes, trying new cruelty-free products, and spending time with her partner Addison and cat Kovu.
