Going the Extra Mile- Green Companies July 8, 2010

I found this on www.organicitsworthit.org, and being a company who produces in India, Is founded by strong Indian woman, and strives to benefit India, I had to share it with you.

Through their use of sustainable business practices, companies involved in the production of  organic products do much to promote and protect human and environmental health. In many cases, their good work does  not stop there. Some are actively involved in the preservation of the rain forest; others strive to ensure pregnant women’s access to essential pre-natal care. Still others work to keep endangered animals from going extinct.

There is nothing easy about being a female farmer in India. Most are uneducated and uninsured, and they are compensated, on average, 30-40 percent less than their male counterparts.  Tulsi tea manufacturer Organic India is working to change this. The company employs widows to harvest the tulsi, remove its blossoms, and process it in its factories. Moreover, it pays them premium wages that are on par with those earned by their male counterparts.

At Sama Baby Organics we are doing our part to promote change in India as well. Our 100% certified organic cotton comes from India and is made to benefit India. Our products are fair trade and our farmers use organic vegetables as their rotation crop. This rotation replenishes the soil, feeds the workers, and benefits the environment. Our CEO and VP Shivani and Neha Gupta stay true to their heritage by incorporating India influences into our line and visiting India and our cotton fields 2 to 3 times per year. Find your balance.

I have highlighted a company we admire here at SAMA, to learn more about organic companies committed to going the extra mile for people and the planet.  Click on the source of our blog:  (Source http://www.organicitsworthit.org)
