A Dutch company says it is producing the industry’s first hen eggs with no discernible carbon footprint.
Kipster uses 1,097 solar panels to power its facility, with enough electricity left over to sell back to the grid. The farm also uses waste food as feed to help eliminate its carbon footprint.
While not technically a free-range facility, the birds are allowed to roam in a covered courtyard, and their eggs are sold in containers made of potato starch rather than cardboard.
The birds eventually are slaughtered and sold at local markets rather than being shipped long distances.
