Lifekind supports organizations like . . .

Most Lifekind customers are familiar with our passion for purity and reducing chemical exposure in our homes, even the Purity Promise: “If you can find a purer mattress, we’ll give you ours for FREE!“  What you may not know about is the behind the scenes commitment to supporting a healthier environment. As the newest Product Specialist I am amazed to see how much consideration goes into every detail here at Lifekind.  From 100% US grown, first staple, certified organic cotton to the organically reared sheep who roam free on family-owned property in Northern California untreated by pesticides or other harmful chemicals.  With intense research of our products from start to finish I was able to see through my own jaded veil of “green” to accept the fact that people do still uphold ethics with honest high-quality products just because it’s the way things should be done.  It will come as no surprise that this is a way of life, not just isolated to business. It is crucial that we support the delicate balance of the web of life and remember that every choice we make has consequences, known or unknown, that demand our responsibility.  We must protect the invaluable gifts of our Earth.  Without our oceans, life as we known it would cease to exist.  The same can be said about wildlife and nature in general, which is why we support organizations like Greenpeace and World Wildlife Fund (WWF).   In pursuit of a less toxic world Lifekind also contributes to companies such as Pesticide Action Network (PAN), Washington Toxics Coalition and Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) that promote healthier alternatives and provide opportunities to support change on even the smallest level. One of the biggest impacts you can make is to go organic in any way possible, knowing you are in fact taking responsibility for the consequences of your actions.  Foundations such as Green America and Organic Consumers Association are more than helpful, offering product lists and organizing relevant information.  Listed below is a list of foundations that I encourage you to include in your effort to live a more conscious life.  After all, Lifekind simply means to be “kind to all life.” Recommended Foundations to Support: Habitat for Humanity International                                    Ocean Conservancy National Wildlife Federation                                    Union of Concerned Scientists Nature Conservancy                                                Organic Trade Association South Yuba River Citizens League (SYRCL)
