Our Environmental Philosophy
In recent history, our concept of the environment has changed. If we think about how our ancestors lived, they were deeply intertwined with their surroundings. They woke up and saw themselves in a vast world. They did not close the door and forget about the natural world. Instead, every day they partook in the world through picking fruits and vegetables, sitting by the fire and stargazing before bed. They loved the entire world but never hurt it because they relied on it for their sustenance. Today we see the environment as something external. We all live in our cozy bubbles. We don’t think about sharing the planet with animals and plants. We think of the world as ‘our world’. We often make comments like, ‘cars and factories are polluting our environment’ and ‘the environment is in grave danger and it may be too late to fix it’. If we think about how these comments are phrased, the word ‘the’ usually comes before environment. Let us not externalize our environment, but encompass it and take ownership and responsibility for it. Cars and factories are destroying us, WE are in grave danger and it may be too late.
Before soap or whatever we do or sell, we must all put our environment first. Environment must always be at the forefront of our minds when we make life choices. Environment is not some external symbol for the world we live in. It is you and I, as individuals.
Every business plan we've developed at The Organic For You has involved the respectful treatment of our environment. We use as many local ingredients as we can and support small farmers and growers wherever possible. Building a sustainable business is easy when you don’t put profit margins first.
