It is said Environmental stewardship "Refers to responsible use and protection of the natural environment through conservation and sustainable practices."
We 100% agree with this as a general statement for all sentient beings. As a business owner it takes on a whole new level of meaning.
As our natural environment changes to a larger scope, we believe that change should not effect what throw away material has always meant to us. Growing up in my generation we have had a chance to see the world through new eyes with the invention of the internet. Seeing the roads littered with debris more and more as I grew older. It is our gratitude that as a business owner it is something that we choose to be recyclable, biodegradable, BPA-free and should not be a concern for the customers recycling or composting practices.
If someone is looking to heal then from purchase to finality there needs to be a full and complete cycle.
The concept of stewardship is what we use in our daily practice to preserve our operating procedures minimal waste. To be sure there is less waste from start to finish, and what would be considered waste is recycled.
We are creators, so as a business owner we adopt practices that reflect what we feel. It might cost more, there might be a bit more research and development. It is worth it for everyone once you start to realize the worth in what you have just created.
