Organic Earth is an organic, fair trade business as I believe in raising the standard of living for everyone in the supply chain, along with looking after our planet now, and for the future. The company I am sourcing my first product from is based in Nepal, and the products are handmade by local women, from organic NZ wool. They also donate 3% of their profits back to the children of the people it employs.
Following this model, I am going to give back $1 from every item bought to a charitable cause, the first being to help a rebuild a school in rural Nepal which was damaged in the recent earthquakes. These and sustainable, organic practices are very important to me and I am keen to reflect this in my brand and it associated values.
I have a vision to create a business selling affordable household products that are gentle on our planet and that gives back to our global communities. One of my main goals is to create value in products with longer shelf lives, empowering us to become less disposable with our choices and ultimately creating less waste.
