The Importance of Sustainability – What You Need to Know
One of the main goals I had when I started Nature’s Ultra was to provide quality CBD to as many people as possible and to do that without cutting corners. I wanted to use sustainable farming practices that go above and beyond the current industry standards even if that means more testing and planning. This goes beyond CBD and hemp farming. In order to raise the quality of life for our future generations, we need to start planning now and that includes using more sustainable practices.
Sustainability and Nature’s Ultra
Before I started Nature’s Ultra, I looked into all the pros and cons of farming hemp. I realized that while it may be difficult, it would ultimately have a positive impact. It turns out that hemp is not only good for producing CBD, but it can actually help the environment.
Hemp is able to pull carbon dioxide from the air. And if you were unaware, too much carbon dioxide in the air is a bad thing and contributes to global warming. The roots of the hemp plant are also great for the soil and help prevent erosion. On top of that, hemp can also be used to clean up soil that is full of contaminants.
Hemp also doesn’t need a lot of water to grow as well and is a high-yield plant making it a great crop environmentally and economically. And there are so many uses for hemp that go beyond just CBD. And the sustainable practices Nature’s Ultra uses doesn’t just stop at the plants.
Nature’s Ultra uses high-quality glass for our products to ensure that no more plastic ends in the ocean and that the CBD is protected and kept pure. Another benefit to the glass bottles is that the oil doesn’t break it down like it would with plastic. And no one wants plastic in their oil.
How You Can Help With Sustainability
It may seem like there’s nothing we can do sometimes to make a difference, but that’s not true. Not only can we make a difference through our actions, but we can set an example for our children and those around us that can be carried on for generations to come. It doesn’t have to be some grand gesture either. You can start using sustainable practices right in your own home.
Look for things around your home that can be reused or repurposed. Turn old clothes into rags and drink from reusable cups or water bottles. When washing dishes or taking a shower, try to use less water and use cold water when you can. Be mindful of what’s plugged in and conserve electricity whenever possible. And lastly, if you’re able, try gardening. You can make compost out of your egg shells and banana peels, not to mention you’ll be growing your own food.
There are many ways to live a sustainable lifestyle, but the important thing is to try. Remember it’s not just you that you’re doing it for. It’s for your children and for the very planet we live on.
Why I Focus on the Why
Part of being a leader is being able to convey important information to your team in a way that helps everyone perform at their best. It’s not always easy, but by making the why the cornerstone of my businesses rather than only focusing on the what, I’ve found it much easier to put my team in a position to succeed.Read More
