Airly Unveils New Climate-Friendly Snack


ST. LOUIS, MO
Friday, May 21st, 2021

There are plenty of ways to contribute to a more sustainable earth, but many shoppers may not realize that eating a healthy snack could actually reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Snacking brand Airly, a wholly owned subsidiary of Post Holdings, has made this more accessible for all consumers as it rolls out its Airly™ Oat Clouds™ crackers made with wholesome oats and grains, developed specifically to remove greenhouse gases from the air.

Jennifer McKnight, Co-Founder and Chief Marketing Officer, Airly"At Airly, we believe the time to act is now. Today, roughly 25 percent of greenhouse gases come from the global food supply," says Jennifer McKnight, Co-Founder and Chief Marketing Officer. "When we started, we asked ourselves, what if instead of just trying to be 'less bad,' we could actually use food to help reverse climate change? And what if that sustainable food was so darn delicious that it inspired everyone to want to make food this way? These are the questions that inspired us to create Airly Oat Clouds."

With an emphasis on transparency, Airly prints its carbon footprint on each 7.5 oz box of crackers it sells. Each box sold removes between 18 g–21 g of CO2 from the air, which is equivalent to 2,500–2,900 beach balls worth of fresher air. Just by purchasing a box of Airly Oat Clouds, consumers are helping to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

According to a press release, Airly purchases carbon credits to offset any footprint from its minimally processed production and transportation system. These carbon credits benefit various U.S. agricultural and forestry projects, allowing Airly to invest in the land, thus continuing the virtuous cycle of environmental growth of planting more acres, crops, and plants.

Dr. Mark Izzo, Ph.D., Co-Founder and Chief Science Officer, Airly"From seed to shelf, Airly considers its impact on the environment every step of the way, using cutting-edge technology and the latest scientific innovations to support our planet's health," says Dr. Mark Izzo, Ph.D., Co-Founder and Chief Science Officer. "By connecting world-leading scientists with farmers, we're able to grow our wholesome oats on zero CO2 emission farms. Through carbon farming practices that remove CO2 from the air by sequestering it in the soil, this can make agriculture part of the solution to climate change, rather than a contributor."

Made with 100 percent real, wholesome ingredients, Airly is available in four flavor varieties, packed with both sweet and savory notes that make for a satisfying, tasty snack:

  • Cheddar Oat Clouds: removes 21 g of CO2 from the air
  • Sea Salt: removes 19 g of CO2 from the air
  • Chocolate: removes 18 g of CO2 from the air
  • Salted Caramel: removes 19 g of CO2 from the air

"We're passionate about addressing climate change and believe everyone can help make a difference. However, we understand that no one company or product can solve climate change, and we know how overwhelming that can feel as an individual who wants to help but feels small in the grand scheme of it all," says Kris Corbin, Co-Founder and Chief Supply Chain Officer. "But by taking these small, yet mighty steps together, we believe we can all make a difference toward fighting climate change."

Airly Oat Clouds are now available for purchase on Airly’s website and on Amazon, and will be rolling into select retailers nationwide throughout 2021.

Give your consumers the gift of sustainability, and they are sure to return the favor!
