Sustainability: Everyday Ideas for a Better You and a Healthier Planet
The title of this guest post, and subsequent e-book, may be wordy but there are dozens of years of overuse, lack of concern, and overconsumption that continue to have a negative impact on both our precious planet and our lives. Many experts agree that we have to begin taking responsibility and the best way to get things going is by small, everyday changes made by individuals.
Sibu Beauty, the company with a conscious, sponsored this e-book. The philosophy of both its founders and employees is to lead-by-example and prioritize what is truly important and can have a positive influence.
From the first time CEO Bruce McMullin visited the Himalayan Mountains, the source of the most nutrient-dense sea buckthorn berries on the planet, he made sustainable choices. First and foremost, he vowed to keep the beauty of the pristine mountain landscape intact. He chose to have the berries harvested the traditional way of gently shaking the bushes and collecting only the ripened berries thus leaving the bushes intact for future generations. Additionally, McMullin made the decision to employ local workers for the harvesting and pureeing of the miracle berry, paying them above-average wages. His Holiness the Dalai Lama blessed these conscious efforts and the affirmative effects they continue to have on the indigenous people.
Sibu Beauty’s entire line of topical and ingestible products is cruelty-free, vegan, and contains no harmful parabens or sulfates. Even the packaging is done to meet the standards of the FSC (Forest Stewardship Council). To ensure quality control and employ people on this side of the world, all finished products are manufactured in the United States.
The Sibu Beauty story has just begun and with the release of this e-book and their corporate and personal efforts, it is their hope to continue to educate people around the world on the importance of individual actions and how small changes can make a tremendous difference.
The company approached 8 of the top experts in a variety of disciplines to contribute short, informative articles to the new “Sustainability: Everyday Ideas for a Better You and a Healthier Planet” free, downloadable e-book. Even if only one change is incorporated into every reader’s everyday life, the pendulum can start to swing in a positive direction.
