Here at Love of Lotus we are very mindful and respectful of our Mother Earth, Gaia, our home. Although we aren’t perfect, we make every effort we can to recycle, reuse and re-purpose. All our natural ingredients in our products are either organic, substantially wild crafted or organically grown by me, Rainie. Of course, we avoid GMOs like the plague, they have no place in our products.
We recycle everything we can that we don’t find a use for. What can’t be recycled we try to give to others who may have a use for it. We reuse and re-purpose when we can. You might see this when your Love of Lotus order arrives. With the exception of our subscription boxes, our products are often shipped in recycled boxes. We order a lot of items online so we end up with quite a few boxes. We also use them for storage and donate them to who ever may need them for moving, organizing, letting their toddler play with, whatever need a box can meet. Our items are carefully wrapped and packaged when we ship them out. We hate to throw packing peanuts into a land fill so we reuse them. We don’t purchase these, ever. It’s our hope that you reuse them as well for crafts, your own shipping needs or storing breakables. We treat bubble wrap the same way.
Glass jars are easy to come by and way too many of them end up in a landfill. This isn’t kind to Gaia. We’re starting a line of candles made from recycled glass jars. These are jelly jars, pickle jars, small jars, big jars. In the summer we will have a line of bug repelling candles made with recycled tin cans. I love the look of these!! I’m looking forward to this summer so we can have these available 🙂
In the spirit of loving and protecting Gaia, we have become stewards of the land. We not only inherit this planet from our ancestors, we borrow it from our children. Anything we do has the potential to either harm or grow Gaia. We take personal responsibility for this wonderful planet we’re blessed with. Every action, thought and word can be for the benefit of Gaia and our fellow humans or used for harm. The choice is ours.
