“You must own stock in the electrical company,” my dad would mutter, shaking his head as he went from room to room turning off the lights that my siblings and I left on in empty rooms around the house. I would frequently respond with a smart aleck comeback about how well my stock was doing. Eventually though, the point stuck, and now as an adult I think of this as one of the early influential lessons I learned about the importance of environmental awareness.
I’m grateful for the experiences that have instilled a passion in me for environmental justice, sustainability and a commitment to help create a better world for the future. I’m even more grateful for the work I do at Navitas Organics that’s in line with these passions.
At Navitas Organics, we strive to make a difference – whether it’s through Fairtrade, B-Corp certification, a commitment to organic, non-GMO products or partnerships with environmental organizations such as A Growing Culture. One area that sometimes gets overlooked, however, is our local effort to operate our headquarters as efficiently as possible to help reduce our company’s impact on global climate change. So, today on National Cut Your Energy Costs Day, I’m here to highlight this important aspect of our commitment to reducing our carbon footprint.
