Because your wellness is important.
Finally, not everything causes cancer...
There is too much doom and gloom out there. Everywhere you go someone is talking about climate change, chemicals polluting the environment, the increase in illness and disease, and sweatshop-like labor conditions. The problem is that all of these things are happening. The even bigger problem is that not many people seem to be doing anything about it.
You want to help, you want to make a difference, you want to make a healthier world for yourself, your friends and your family. But it can be overwhelming. As one small neighborhood eco-store, we sometimes feel the same way.
The good news is, making a difference is easy.
“Where do I start?” you ask. Easy. Start with yourself. Start with small changes. Everything you choose to surround yourself with affects your health and reflects on the rest of the world. Make a point of knowing where your food is coming from, and who is making your shoes. Because hey, it's your universe. Take a stand. Live clean, healthy and free. Only you can change the world.
You want to feel good about what you are doing. You want to enjoy every minute of your long and healthy life. You believe in equality and justice. You want to be stylish, modern, and fun. You want to express your own unique ideas and personality. You want to save the world.
Here's the theory behind a Clean Living Eco Store: You can have it all:
You want to feel healthy. By surrounding yourself with clean, non-toxic, and environmentally friendly things, you are not only taking care of your own well-being but also of everyone who touched these things along the way. This means that the farmers, factory workers, laborers, tailors, and so on, get to live healthier lives as well.
This also means that less of these chemicals end up out in the world. And this affects everything; plants, animals, people, everything. These companies can also take better care of all their environmental practices, like using more efficient systems, less energy, and shipping shorter distances. How about that for making the difference?
In addition to providing a safe, healthy environment for its workers, they also need to be treated well, and paid fairly. It isn't right that someone should have to suffer so that you can have some shoes.
It also makes sense to make something beautiful and build it to last. If you buy something that you love, you will take care of it, and will need to buy less stuff. Call us old-fashioned, but we think that something made by skilled artisans is pretty valuable. Style and fashion and quality can go hand in hand.
We are looking for people who want a cleaner, better planet and a healthier life. Are you ready to join the movement?
