At Nice Vice, we’re over talking about making a global impact—we want to actually make one! By actively strategizing clean and kind ways that we can produce a yummy product for our customers that is also environmentally friendly, we feel it’s a win-win for everyone.
Here are 5 ways that we’re actively working to reduce our carbon footprint:
We Source Local
We work very hard to only use local ingredients in our vice cream. That’s why our flavours change every couple of days! As seasons roll in and out, different options become available for local produce, which means our vice cream flavours vary, too.
Our Packing in 100% Compostable
Reducing the amount of garbage that lands in a landfill is extremely important to our day-to-day operations. That’s why every container that your vice cream is served in—whether it’s a single cup, a pint, and even your scoop—is 100% compostable and made from recycled and/or environmentally friendly materials.
Nice Vice is Dairy-Free
Producing dairy-free vice cream makes the biggest impact on our carbon footprint. By not contributing to the erroneous amount of methane gas that’s a direct result of agricultural farming production, we cut back on the active environmental devastation that’s associated with it.
If there’s one thing you can do to change your own global impact for the better, it’s eliminating meat and dairy from your diet.
Our Ride is Eco-Friendly
Although not electric, our cute little vice cream van is small—and so is its powerhouse! Designed in Japan as an urban delivery vehicle, its engine measures at only 600 cubic centimeters—the size of a motorcycle engine! Also, aside from being great on gas mileage, it also produces minimal fuel emissions.
We Ban GMOs from Our Shop
No genetically modified ingredients, here! At Nice Vice, we’re all about organic products that are free from pesticides, herbicides, and other chemicals that are known to be harmful to the health of almost all living things.
Not having that stance would defeat the purpose of what we’re all about: creating a healthy vice for our loyal customers.
A nice vice!
If you haven’t tried our product yet, be sure to stop by 1022 Mainland Street and do so. Our flavours change almost daily, so you’re sure to always find something unique and mind-blowing for your taste buds.
Remember that our vice cream is both gluten and dairy-free, and that you’ll leave with peace of mind knowing that our goal is to be kind to the environment in every way possible.
See you soon!
