Happy Earth Day!
Every day is Earth Day for us!
Keeping our planet alive and thriving for our children means learning about the natural world and what we can do to protect and preserve it for future generations.
For us, this means using bio-degradable, compostable, recycled and recyclable packaging as well as using organic and natural ingredients to protect our soil. It is also important we educate our children about the harmful effects of plastic waste on the natural world and how they too can help conserve our world for years to come.
Together we can play our part to make a positive impact on the future! 🌍
