Business Ethics

Above all else, I commit to being a vegan business. I don't think we need to exploit other living things to fully enjoy our lives on this planet. Therefore, I will never produce any items that include any animal products (like honey or milk, for example). I don't think there is any issue with using found animal items in your spiritual practice (like feathers or bones), but I personally don't feel a connection to that practice.

I strive to be an ethical craftsperson. That means using natural and synthetic components that are produced in an environmentally-friendly way, using reusable or recyclable packaging, and always trying to reduce my carbon footprint. For me, being ethical also means that I acknowledge pseudo science and unethical advertising in the industry. Terms like organic, non-gmo, and natural are largely meaningless buzzwords meant to inspire capitalism, rather than to actually help the planet. Addressing these terms and concepts requires a nuanced approach, so please check my blog or email me for more information.
