Here’s the Scoop
Admit it: we all really do scream for ice cream — especially when it’s made with simple, old-fashioned organic ingredients and comes in mind-blowing flavors like Lemon Cookie, Dad’s Cardamom, and a balsamic-vinegar-splashed Strawberry Je Ne Sais Quoi. It’s allllllll good. But what truly sets sweet treats from the Bay Area’s Three Twins Ice Cream apart its commitment to land conservation.
Through a program called Ice Cream for Acres, Three Twins donates money to land preservation efforts worldwide every time it sells a cup, pint, or “squround” of packaged ice cream. The purchase of a 1.5-quart squround saves at least 12 square feet of land. Each pint conserves at least six square feet. And for each single-serve biodegradable cup sold, Three Twins helps preserve at least two square feet of rainforests, sensitive habitats, and other significant spaces. It’s the smartest reason of all to ask for a second scoop (or third, as the case may be). Three Twins has four shops in Northern California, but you can find it packaged in stores like Whole Foods Market and the Fresh Market as well as independent grocers across the country.
