Celebrating Earth Month 2021

Celebrating Earth Month 2021

by Mike Schaefer April 20, 2021

Climate change, global warming, ocean acidification, wildlife depletion - the list of environmental challenges we are facing today is seemingly endless.  Endless and complicated - there are no "one-size fits all" solutions to problems that are clearly going to be with us for generations to come.

One thing we do know is that each of us, in our own ways, can make a difference.  Whether its our support for critical non-profit advocacy groups, like "Toxic Free Futures" or memberships in national trade associations, we can, as the saying goes "leave our campsite better than we found it." If COVID 19 has proven anything to us over the past year, it is that we are all more connected and more dependent on each other than ever before.

At Soaring Heart one of our biggest environmental commitments is our annual GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) and GOLS (Global Organic Latex Standard) compliance certification.  When we say we do our best to bring you the most sustainable, highest quality products we can - we back up this commitment with an independent third party audit of our products and processes.  It also means we are part of global community of suppliers and producers, each doing their part to create and adhere to standards we all believe are critical to both ethical business practices and environmental integrity.   

This year we celebrate how "Earth Day" has transitioned into "Earth Month" and is now truly a global moment of environmental awareness.  Without you, our loyal and committed customers, we wouldn't be the sustainable business that we are today.  You give us the ability to support suppliers who work with integrity from around the globe.  You give us the ability to build products where we can, without hesitation, promise to "stand behind every stitch we make."    From our vantage point, the future looks bright.  Thank you!
