Our Mission & Movement
Hey, it's Mike from Earthy Greens. If you have never heard about us, you probably don't know much about us.
So the first thing you should know is WHY. Why is Earthy Greens in existence?
I'm going to be honest. Me starting Earthy Greens in the beginning came out of necessity.
A few long years ago, I was a very sickly person. Even the smallest of things would make me sick.
I was getting sick out of nowhere too often then I would like.
It wasn't the sickness that frustrated me. It was what my sickness would hold me back from doing.
When I'm sick, I couldn't go to work, go to school, or hang out with the people I love.
So I searched for a solution to help me NOT get sick as often... And that's how "Super Immunity" and Earthy Greens was born.
After I had solved my own problem, Earthy Greens had evolved to so much more than just "me".
Nowadays, we have a different focus.
Focus #1 is YOU.
Our mission is to help you boost your immune system to it's absolute strongest potential to protect you from the harmful bacteria, viruses and pathogens out there.
But even more so, we want to keep you and your family safe, healthy, and happy.
And we plan to help you on your journey by giving you the tools, knowledge, and solutions you need to keep your immune system in tip-top shape.
Health is wealth.
And without it, you cannot strive for all the other things you want in life.
Focus #2: Ending World Hunger
If you're reading this, chances are you had something to eat today, and if you're hungry you have access to all the food you want... Every single day.
For you that's fortunate.
But for others around the world, they don't have what you have.
As of 2021, there are more than 690,000,000 (690 Million) people around the world that suffer from world hunger.
In the United States, there's around 330,000,000 (330 Million) people...
Imagine every single person in the United States... Then DOUBLE that and add another 30 million people...
That's how much people around the world are starving.
If you and I have access to nearly unlimited food, then world hunger should NOT exist.
And we at Earthy Greens will NOT stop until world hunger is gone. Period.
That's why for every order you order from us, we feed a child on your behalf that wouldn't have been fed otherwise without your help.
Do we HAVE to do this?
Absolutely not. We could have easily keep the profits to ourselves and call it a day.
However, here at Earthy Greens. We realize there's MUCH more to life than profits and money.
You cannot take profits and money to the grave, that's why we plan to give as much as we can.
We believe there's more than enough to go around for everyone. It's just a matter of us distributing the funds to those in need.
World hunger shouldn't exist, and with your help we can make sure it doesn't.
Focus #3: Creating a Sustainable Environment For Future Generations.
Why is a sustainable environment so important for our future generations?
Did you know in the last year, nearly 20,000,000 hectares of forest has been but or burned down.
To visualize that, imagine 37,440,209 football fields worth of forest being burned down in this year alone!
It's probably much more by now...
Here's how many hectares of forest being cut or burned down as you're reading this.
But why does this even matter so much?
We can go deep into this for hours, but I'll give you the 30 second run down:
1. We're killing the earth's natural habitat
70% of the world's plants and animals live in forest.
Populations of wildlife have plunged 50% in the last 40 years alone.
Meaning half of all wildlife is gone. Just in 40 years alone.
This is the beginning of the 6th mass extinction, if we don't do anything...
2. Deforestation plays a major part in global warming.
In 2017 alone, deforestation 7.5 billion tons of carbon dioxide to the earth's atmosphere. Almost 50% more than all energy related CO2 emissions from around the U.S.
3. Deforestation messes up the water cycle.
In the rainforest ecosystem, more than half of the water is held in plants and trees.
Destroy the trees, you destroy the water cycle as well.
4. Deforestation causes soil to erode.
Without the roots of trees to anchor the soil, you lose all the nutrients in the soil.
Simply put. No trees = no soil = no vegetables or fruits.
You maybe thinking... "Yeah that's bad and all, but we probably have a lot of trees left, they'll grow on their own right?"
I'd like to think that too, but that's not the fact.
We're cutting down trees at a rate significantly higher than they're growing.
How much longer do we have until there's no trees like 10,000 years or so?
I wish that was the case...
You've seen the numbers...
If we don't change anything, ALL the rainforest in the world will be gone in 79 years... Not 100,000, not 10,000, not 1,000, not even 100 years...
Let that sink in for a while. Just one generation more and they might not even know what rainforests are. Are you seeing why this is serious now?
So how can you help?
I'm glad you've asked :)
My intention here is not to be all doom and gloom...
My intention is to show you the severity of this problem.
But where there's a problem, there's a solution!
Since we've partnered with one of the biggest non-profit tree planting charities in the world, every item you make here at Earthy Greens will plant a tree on your behalf! :)
So whether you order 1 item or 100 items, you're helping your family stay safe and healthy through this pandemic AND you're contributing to a more sustainable future for the next generation of your family.
How awesome is that?! It's a win-win for everyone.
Our mission is to plant 100 million trees AND feed 100 million people in need in the next 5 years. Not for the sake of planting trees... But for the sake of having our next generation having a place to live.
This is who we are. This is our mission. And I'd love for you to join our movement!
To your future,
Founder, Earthy Greens
