Supporting Local Farmers and Reducing Fossil Fuels
Mobile Bucky Box builds software to help food distributors deal directly with customers, in a mission to create a better food system. Its cloud software aims to solve the food distribution problem in ways that nurture earth-friendly farming and resilience. It's a social enterprise on a mission to foster a human food system that is supportive of the long-term health of all living systems. A minimum of 67% of profits is reinvested into projects that further the company's mission.
One of the major causes of fossil fuels is coming for the transportation, shipment, and delivery of agriculture and livestock. By adopting a system similar to Bucky Box in the US, we can utilize community farmers and create a much more eco friendly and efficient food distribution system.
Fossil Fuels are a direct result of the transportation of farm crops and livestock
The long-time transportation of livestock and crops is damaging and lessens the quality for the consumer
The negative impacts of agriculture in the US may cost society between $5.7 billion and $16.9 billion annually. The negative impacts identified include the cost of greenhouse gas emissions from cropland and livestock, damage to wildlife and ecosystem biodiversity, and damage to human health from pesticides.
