AT BUGGYLOVE WE LIVE BY SOME PRETTY SIMPLE STANDARDS…
Protect our children. Defend our planet. Improve our world.
Why BuggyLOVE? In response to the blatant industry “green washing” and prevalent, misleading labeling practices, BuggyLOVE has chosen to refuse the use of logos on our labels that have nothing to do with the authentic, sustainable principals of organic growing and processing methodologies.
“Is your product organic?”
This is the typical question with no simple ‘silver bullet’ answer…
Any company that wishes to be genuinely “organic” must first strive to go back to Nature and to discover what it is to be sustainable. Observe systems that naturally self-perpetuate and harness the pure qualities of non-chemical treated life to achieve results that Mother Nature would be proud of.
Being “organic” also demands considerations for fair trade, social justice, vegetarian/vegan, biodynamic, permaculture, transitional organic and ethical wildcrafting (to name a few) sustainable and ethical methodologies.
“Natural” products and brands, though safer than the harsh alternatives, still contain many of the toxins and harmful ingredients we list below. Because of “green wash” marketing, the consumer is appallingly misled and unknowingly invests in products that still contain levels of toxins. We choose to not participate in these deceitful business practices, and caution consumers to understand that Natural + Green + Eco-Friendly will never ever = Organic!
We applaud companies that work to create better and safer products, and strive to leave cleaner footprints on our Earth. We believe that knowledge is power so we will continue our campaign to educate consumers about the choices they make everyday.
So, when someone legitimately asks us if our products are “organic”, we believe they are asking us a very important question. We believe that you are asking if we participate in the “green wash” marketing game. The answer is a simple NO…and we never will. We have a responsibility as business owners, and as parents to speak the truth.
BuggyLOVE does not take this responsibility lightly. Unlike “Natural” products, we will not compromise on the quality of any of our ingredients or substitute them for cheaper chemicals in order to lower costs or improve margins. Additionally, unlike most of our competitors, we will never use the potentially carcinogenic preservatives parabens or sulfates in any of our organic products. We dedicate ourselves to maintaining the highest ethical standards as we continue to evolve our own organic and environmental footprint.
