Every Day is Earth Day
We believe that every day is Earth Day, and during this Earth Month we are thrilled to share the progress we’ve made towards our goal of operating beyond carbon neutrality.
Carbon neutrality, or having a net zero carbon footprint, refers to net zero carbon emissions. This is achieved by balancing a measured amount of carbon released with an equivalent amount sequestered or offset, or buying enough carbon credits to make up the difference.
In short; balancing carbon in and carbon out.
Healthy Conscious Learning in Action
Our Healthy Conscious Learning in Action (HCLA) initiatives ensure that our educational ethos reflects our holistic business modality and mission to empower small family farmers through regeneration.
Our latest HCLA innovation is intended to significantly lower our company’s carbon emissions by rethinking our retailer training efforts. At ORGANIC INDIA, we’ve always prioritized meaningful connections with our retailers to empower those at store levels to share knowledge about our products and practices with our treasured customers. We believe that this pursuit and interchange of knowledge is essential. It is also essential to leverage our impact on minds and hearts against our impact on the environment.
Our new HCLA Low Carbon Impact Virtual Training program was designed to foster the same deep roots and interconnectedness offered by face-to-face interactions, while creating significantly less of an environmental impact. How? By creating an interactive, online training that mimics an in-person training.
This is saving literally tons of carbon dioxide from being released into the atmosphere! In fact, we estimated that by training 100 people through the pilot HCLA Low Carbon Impact Virtual Training Program over a two-month period, we saved 2.61 METRIC TONS of CO2 emissions from being added into our atmosphere! This is equivalent to not driving 6,400 miles, or saving 6 barrels of crude oil.*
Our Commitment to Regeneration
At ORGANIC INDIA, we are committed to regeneration by providing meaningful livelihoods to small family farmers while restoring vibrant health to the environment.
Regenerative Organic Agriculture
Regenerative agriculture is a sub-sector of organic farming that promotes biodiversity and builds soil fertility. Our intention is to leave the planet in better condition than we found it by committing to practices that protect and restore the Earth. Simply put, we put in more than we take out.
Our commitment to environmental regeneration is often seen through the lens of the essential partnerships we foster with the farmers in India, and their empowered use of regenerative organic agriculture techniques. However, regeneration doesn’t stop with the land. Because we know that our business operations consume resources, burn fossil fuels, and contribute to waste streams, we apply regeneration to every aspect of our business:
• Farmers, their families and communities, and the communities we live and work in
• Employee empowerment and behaviors
• Business practices and strategies, like our Healthy Conscious Learning in Action initiatives
At ORGANIC INDIA, we know that the work we do as human beings matters. We are committed to empowering small family farmers in India through regenerative agriculture that puts in more than it takes out. We are committed to empowering every being in the chain from seed to shelf, and through our Training and Education efforts, we are committed to empowering people with holistic resources and tools to help everyone along their wellness path.
By supporting ORGANIC INDIA, you are a beloved environmental steward in the fight against climate change!
