In a single year with Jiminy's, -- will save...
  • 0 Acres of land
  • 0 Gallons of water
  • 0 Grams of greenhouse gas
On this land you could plant:
0 TREES
Think about this as:
0 TOILET FLUSHES
Imagine not driving:
0 MILES

We had to make a few assumptions to make this eco-calculator, and here they are:

• A standard toilet used 1.5 gallons per flush

• You can sustainably plant 450 trees per acre of land

• The average car gets 25 miles per gallon and one gallon of gas produces 8.887 kilograms* of GHG.

Why insects?
Less greenhouse gas

Traditional protein sources produce huge amounts of methane. With insects there’s almost no methane produced (a far worse greenhouse gas than CO2). Our food and treats emit an average of 740% less greenhouse gas than beef protein food and treats!

Less land

Insect farming is close to ideal. There’s no need for acres and acres of grassland. Beef produce 40 pound of protein per year while crickets produce ~65,000 pounds per year (Grub Protein productivity is even better with 130,000 pounds per year!)

Less water

Crickets and grubs require a fraction of the water that traditional livestock require. Grubs can get most of the water that they require from their food source.

Helping the planet, one dog at the time!
Dogs and cats are responsible for 25 to 30% of the enviromental impact of meat consumption in the US*.
We looked at this and concluded that we need a change. So, at Jiminy’s, we replace traditional animal protein with insect protein. Sustainability is what we’re running twards (we try not to drive when we can use foot power). Our insect protein uses exponentially less land, emits almost no greenhouse gasses and requires less water.
