From our forests to our mountains and seas, Earth Science loves our planet. As we celebrate the International Day of Forests this month [March], we also celebrate a milestone of our own. We are pleased to announce 10 years of partnership with Carbonfund.org and the Carbonfree® Partner Program. Our initiatives to fight climate change for cleaner, and more sustainable business practices, leading to a healthier earth today and tomorrow, are fueled by our passion to keep our environment green.
Keeping the Golden State Golden
Reducing our carbon footprint is a daily priority at Earth Science and we make our best efforts to walk the walk from the products we make to our daily office life. We love our home in California and choose to manufacture locally within the Golden State. By sourcing components locally and choosing recycled & recyclable content whenever possible, we reduce the transportation of goods and materials daily. We believe our higher standards for vendors and raw material suppliers increases awareness for the care of our beautiful planet. Each small step creates an impact, so we pride ourselves in the details like our packing material, a biodegradable, and compostable material made from potato starch.
Sustainability is in our culture
We use local recycling programs and promote a paperless work environment in our offices to reduce and reuse materials and supplies every day. Though our staff loves their coastal commutes, our 4-day workweek reduces vehicle emissions, uses less power & resources, and leaves a little more time to enjoy nature’s beauty.
Completing the Circle
Through our partnership and work with Carbonfund.org, we are pleased to contribute to the planting of over 100 trees each year and aiding in reforestation efforts. Our contribution to forest preservation helps to create jobs, maintain and expand our wildlife habitats, protects biodiversity, and improves local environmental quality.
We are so excited to celebrate and share this milestone, and thank you for making our contribution possible.
In addition to planting trees, in the past ten years as a Carbonfree® Business Partner, Earth Science Naturals has neutralized the negative impacts of 830,000 pounds of greenhouse gases by supporting forest preservation projects around the world. These efforts provide the same environmental benefits as planting almost 9800 tree seedlings and growing those trees for ten years! Carbonfund.org congratulates Earth Science Naturals on reaching their tenth anniversary as a Carbonfree® Business Partner!
