La Gourmet is committed to help protect our planet by producing products that promote a healthy lifestyle while helping to preserve the environment. La Gourmet’s “Love our Planet” campaign is a choice to focus on eco-friendly products, see the XT reviews below. Health-related studies have shown that many plastics and lined aluminium bottles leach toxins such as Bisphenol A (BPA). They have also linked BPA to breast cancer and reproductive mutations.

Plastic bottles are also a leading contributor to the waste and pollution problems our planet is facing.
