Earth Month: Sticking with our values

Earth Month: Sticking with our values

by Mike Schaefer April 06, 2020

What a great month to reflect on the importance of everything little thing we do to make our world a better place to live.  Tough times like these can't help but bring us back to the basics - living healthy, caring for each other and appreciating every moment we can spend in the great outdoors.  (Even if we can only dream of sleeping on the beach every night!)

At Soaring Heart we're fortunate to have been focused on healthy sleep and sustainable, organic manufacturing processes for decades.  We like being a little bit different, and we live just fine being a little off the beaten path.   

Like many of us, I've spent alot of time on webinars the last few weeks - learning about the growth in organic shopping and our global need for clearer standards and less "green-washing."  One set of standards that we embrace through our annual certification audits are the UN's 17 goals for sustainable development.  We are proud to both support and live these standards with our business.  You can read more about these global goals through this link.

Meanwhile, thanks for all you're doing to protect your health and the health of our planet.  While our economy is clearly in crisis this is a great time to stick with our values and celebrate the goodness of the earth.

Celebrating Earth Month 2021
Celebrating Earth Month 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.  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.
