NEW YORK, February 26, 2018 – Today, Dr. Smood, a fast-growing cafe chain that sells healthy, organic foods and beverages, and Drift, a rapidly expanding renewable energy and technology company, announced a partnership to provide access to 100% certified organic food and 100% renewable energy in all New York City Dr. Smood stores.
By increasing accessibility to both nutritious food and clean energy, the partnership helps address two of the most pressing concerns of our time: health and climate change.
“Drift is a fantastic partner, helping us achieve our goal of being as environmentally sustainable as possible,” said Niels Ranum, CCO/Partner of Dr. Smood. “Our cafes require a lot of power with refrigeration, ventilation, appliances, and more. The annual emissions avoided by switching all of our NYC locations to Drift is equivalent to the emissions sequestered by 267 acres of forest.”
“We’re incredibly proud to have Dr. Smood as a customer and partner,” said Greg Robinson, CEO of Drift. “Dr. Smood makes it easier for busy New Yorkers to eat healthy foods, and Drift makes it easier for those same people to switch to renewable power. This partnership helps pave the way to a healthier and cleaner future for everyone.”
Dr. Smood has switched to Drift to power all of its New York locations with 100% renewable power – all day, every day. Drift monitors Dr. Smood’s power consumption, purchases the matching amount of renewable power, and transfers that power to Dr. Smood locations on the local New York grid.
