Cool Eco-Friendly Colorado Companies
As Earth Day fast approaches, we are thrilled to celebrate some of our favorite sustainable companies and how they are making amazing products while protecting the planet.
Pangea’s clean, highly effective, well-designed products send a message to the world that this planet is important, what we put in and on our bodies is important, and the communities we create are important. To this end, skincare products are designed to be used as a platform that inspires people to lead, live, and make a living in a purposeful way. To celebrate Earth Day, Pangea has joined forces with One Tree Planted, a highly regarded non-profit organization focused on global reforestation, to reforest 100 acres in the Fourmile Canyon burn area on Earth Day, April 22, 2017.
PACT Organic makes amazing clothes for every member of the family featuring organic cotton, which is a great choice for the environment. Organic cotton is produced and certified to organic agricultural standards, just like the organic food we eat. Its production sustains the health of soils, ecosystems and people by using natural processes rather than artificial inputs. Organic cotton farming does not allow the use of toxic chemicals or GMOs. Instead, it combines tradition, innovation and science to benefit the shared environment and promotes a better quality of life for all involved.
Bhakti Chai is a certified B-Corporation, Fair-Trade Certified and Zero-Waste Manufacturing company. They source only high-quality, premium ingredients that are sustainably sourced. They partner with agriculture partners like La Grama Peru who pride themselves on taking care of their employees and producing some of the highest-quality ginger in the world! They are also thrilled to be a sponsor of the Growing Gardens Earth Day event where they will be providing free chai and Sparkling Teas.
