It’s well beyond time to make the flow of money and supply chain (in all spheres — not just skincare) work in alignment with the earth instead of opposition to it. We are all cosmic travelers, and this brief passage on Earth is a call to channel technology and experience into the regeneration of our People and Planet.
By shifting the economy from the rampant extraction of precious forest resources and exploitation of human labor to a sustainable approach, this ideal world will occur organically. It all starts with the vision and the courage to make it real.
Imagine a world where high-quality, healthy products meet loving, humanistic & ecologically centered values. Instead of bringing our forests, oceans, and workers’ lives to ruin with the consumption of each product, consumers could make a conscious commerce choice that genuinely gave back to the earth and its population.
Conscious Commerce is about empowering consumers to use their dollars with purpose and supporting businesses and organizations that are creating a better world for both people and the planet. The responsibility lies with the consumer to make conscious commerce decisions. We vote with our dollars, and if we want real change to occur, we need to stop supporting the businesses that destroy the planet and exploit people to line their pockets further and maximize profits for an elite few.
Promotes alternative economic opportunities for the traditional peoples
We work closely with local communities and co-ops that provide training to make certain that ethical agroforestry forest management practices are in place. This leads to job opportunities that economically support the traditional communities of the Amazon. We also prioritize ingredients that are wild-harvested so that more families can be involved.
We are a proud member of the Origens Brasil®, a network formed by indigenous peoples, traditional populations, support institutions and companies, which works for the conservation of the Amazon, generating value for the standing forest and for the people who live off it. We are talking about the conservation of 52.3 million hectares of standing forest within areas protected areas in which the Origens Brasil® network operates.
