Our green directory is helping to build a more sustainable world

Meat production requires massive amounts of land, energy, and water. Globally, animal agriculture is responsible for more greenhouse gases than all the world’s transportation systems combined! As well as deforestation, it also takes 48 times as much water to produce beef compared to vegetables. Having smaller families, eating less or no meat and buying foods made with sustainable palm oil can have a huge, positive impact on our planet.

Green directory, protecting the planet

“Before I flew I was already aware of how small and vulnerable our planet is. But only when I saw it from space, in all its ineffable beauty and fragility, did I realize that our most urgent task is to cherish and preserve it for future generations.” – Sigmund Jähn

Farmers, farm workers, and their families. [Fair trade principles…]

Organic products without the nasties

Many high street skincare products contain synthetic chemicals whose long-term effects are unknown. These include parabens, petro-chemicals, synthetic alcohols, DEA/MEA/TEA, petrolatum and isopropyl, along with many others linked to various ailments. A baby’s skin is five times thinner than an adult’s, which means it is easier for harmful toxins to enter their bodies. Organic baby products are free of toxic residue.
