Sustainability and Preserving the Environment at Whole Earth & Sea®
At Whole Earth & Sea® sustainability is more than just a corporate value. Our people are committed to producing sustainable supplements as we believe that health and the environment are intertwined.
Organic Farming Practices
We produce our Farm Fresh Factors™ blends from the fruits (and vegetables and herbs) of our organic farms. Situated in Canada’s pristine wine country – the Okanagan Valley, the farms use only non-GMO seeds to produce the highest quality plants. We also use organic, regenerative practices such as crop rotation, cover crops and fertilisation with compost. Pesticides (even permissible ones) are never used.
Alongside these methods, we have set-aside land projects, and an heirloom seed bank. We also give 10% of Whole Earth & Sea® sales globally to the Plant A Seed & See What Grows Foundation, which teaches children the importance of the environment through education.
We are proud to be a certified B Corporation®. B Corporations® are certified by the non-profit B Lab to meet rigorous standards of social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency.
Unlike traditional corporations, certified B Corporations® are legally required to consider the impact of their decisions not only on their shareholders, but also on their stakeholders (workers, suppliers, community, consumers and the environment). B CorpsTM are important because they inspire all businesses to compete not only to be the best in the world, but to be the best for the world. We are continually striving to not only meet but exceed the B Corporation® standards in all aspects but particularly sustainability.
We are carbon neutral and constantly working to reduce the amount of waste we generate. We are committed to investing in green energy and reducing emissions in our operations.
We mainly use glass packaging because it protects the supplements from UV light damage and preserves their quality. However, glass also reduces waste and unnecessary use of energy. For packaging larger-sized products, it is more sustainable to use other forms of recycled material, so post-consumer recycled plastic is also used.
At Whole Earth & Sea® we are committed to sustainability and the larger goal of encouraging healthier lives by being consistent with these environmentally-friendly practices.
