The "GREEN" part of the Green Goddess
Use your dollars to speak loud and clear, support the green movement!
We love Wildcrafting so much! In 2015 we wildcrafted these gorgeous greens with our friends & family:
STINGING NETTLE, HORSETAIL, YARROW, MINT, RED CLOVER BLOSSOMS, WILD ROSE, GOLDEN ROD, DANDELION ROOT, PINEAPPLE WEED(WILD CHAMOMILE), PLANTAIN, ROSE HIPS, CHAGA, BIRCH SAP, LAMB'S QUARTERS, CHICKWEED, SPRUCE TIPS, FIDDLE HEADS, DANDELION LEAF, FIREWEED FLOWERS, NASTURTIUMS, ASPARAGUS, WILD ONION AND OF COURSE delicious WILD STRAWBERRies, WILD SASKATOONS, CURRANTS, & RASPBERRIES.
The Green Goddess is wildly passionate about many things, and taking care of our fellow humans is no exception! The thought of supporting anything other than paying a fair wage to hard working men & women around the globe is downright ludicrous to The GG - and for what - so we can slather ourselves in cheap cosmetics? No thanks.
The Green Goddess thrives knowing that the ingredients she creates with have supported a woman & her family, fed her children, brought joy and abundance to her life, a smile to her face, and quite possibly made her feel like a Goddess, too! Now that's a feeling that you can be proud of slathering yourself in!
The Green Goddess is a BIG fan of the Organic Movement and this is why you will see more and more regular ingredients being replaced with organics in The GG line. We try to purchased certified organic ingredients whenever possible, and the times when we can't find certified organic, we make purchasing decisions based on our principles. Are they using organic farming methods, but just aren't "certified"? Is the ingredient in question Non-GMO? (The GG just ditched the soy butter that she has used for years because the supplier switched from carrying non-gmo soy to soy that was genetically modified.) Has the ingredient in question been processed in a way that depletes the very nutrients and benefits that we are hoping to gain? - ex: refined, bleached or deodorized
There are many things to consider when making purchases on behalf of our valued customers and Mother Earth, and it is a job that The Green Goddess takes very seriously!
When making your purchase of a GG product, you will see (*) beside the ingredient to say whether it is certified organic. (*Organic)
Our Whipped Body Butters have two options: Organic Whipped Shea Body Butter and (regular) Whipped Body Butter, for an economical option.
Something that weighs on our hearts and on our minds, are the issues of GMOs. We hear all the time from our loyal customers they are trying to do everything to eat GMO free.
We would like to be GMO free, and are actively working towards it. In our Whipped Body Butters, one of the ingredients was a Non-GMO Soy Butter (perfect for the creaminess of the whipped luxurious feeling the butter gives) and we recently found out that our supplier for the soy butter stopped carrying the Non-GMO, and discontinued it. It would be super easy to just purchase the new soy they are carrying, but we are working towards being Non-GMO and friendly to Organic Standards of growing. This means switching ingredients and perfecting the Whipped Body Butter with new ratios of ingredients. (Hello beautiful Organic Shea Butter!)
Please Join us in supporting Non-GMO, not just with foods, but with herbs and medicinal beauty and bath products!
We are always striving to make changes as we become aware of issues.
Glass and Smart Packaging
The Green Goddess chose glass because the thought of any more plastic ending up in our landfills makes the "Green" Goddess's heart ache. Also because glass can be sourced locally, thereby supporting a local business and hence the local economy. They are so stylish & reusable - the GG customers can simply wash their jars and reuse them however they like!
The thought of any of the GG packaging going in the garbage is not one we want to entertain. That is why the GG offer's our customers the ability to return their jars, and they will be reimbursed .50 cents per jar discount towards their next purchase! Dedicated to doing everything we can do to keep it green!
Beauty without Animal Cruelty
The Green Goddess Products are Animal Cruelty Free, Not tested on animals.
We rely on our "human guinea pigs" customer feedback and REALLY RELY on your thoughts. What you think matters to our products, and we hope to keep it this way.
Hand Crafted Hand Made
On most of the product labels, before the ingredients they read, "Lovingly crafted with..." And it's true! A whole lot of love goes into each and every single product.
From Talking to customers, Creating new products, Squeezing out the herb Salves, Education, Labels, Website Design, and on and on. Everything has been made with love in our hearts, from our family to yours!
