"We believe it's the RESPONSIBILITY of EVERY company to consider the environmental impact of their operation...
...and work tirelessly to reduce their foot print"
Planet Earth is the home we all share. "Out of sight, out of mind" is a very irresponsible and damaging attitude. It's our responsibility to every living species on the planet to reduce our impact on the environment. Failure to address operational inefficiency and wasteful practice demonstrates apathy towards the future of mankind and all other species on our planet. Sounds a little intense? We agree.
Even after implementing strict eco-friendly standards in all aspects of our company, we still generate a carbon footprint (like all other businesses). In effort to offset our environmental impact, we donate tree planting funds to the National Forest Foundation. These donations are used to actively support reforestation by planting trees in National Forests that need some help. Since we take from the planet, it only makes sense to give back. To learn more about the National Forest Foundation, please visit https://www.nationalforests.org/
Contributions to these programs are based on total revenue. As our company continues to grow, so do our contributions. We have an exciting goal of planting 25,000 trees by 2025.
Eco Friendly OPS & Ingredients
We don't adopt the out of sight, out of mind mentality. We consider the impact of our products and operations from seedling to disposal. We don't use palm oil or any ingredient that has a reputation for questionable cultivation or harvesting methods. We only use certified organic plant oils and herbs who's farming methods have minimal impact on our planet.

Environmentally Responsible Shipping
15.8 million packages / day UPS
3.3 million packages / day FedEx
563 million mail pieces / day USPS
HOLY CRAP... Even when you only consider UPS and FedEX packages, roughly 6.97 BILLION packages are shipped each year. Thats 6,970,000,000 packages. Now consider the roughly 205,500,000,000 pieces of mail (letters and packages) that USPS ships each year. These numbers are hard to comprehend. Anyways, the point here is, the shipping industry requires a lot of paper / boxes. Using eco-friendly shipping supplies can make a HUGE difference in our resources consumption.

The Only Way Forward
We do not employ an "out of sight, out of mind" mentality. We consider the impact of every detail in our operation from start to finish. If capitalism is to move forward, we must address the wasteful and careless operation of corporate profit jockeys.
"Eco-friendly companies must be the future. We cannot continue taking so much with so little regard."
