About All Things Natural
The mission of all things natural and associated sites is to promote a healthier community and a cleaner environment through sustainable living practices, while at the same time supporting business. We can achieve this by providing a platform that promotes the consumption and use of products that do not use chemicals during their production. We will provide and promote this ease of access platform to all environmentally conscious people.
A few years ago, while unsuccessfully searching for a Cropswap platform where I could trade an abundance of vegetables I grew, for produce I wasn’t growing, I decided to start National CSA Directory. When I was done I created a platform that was much more than just a Cropswap. If my platform was used properly, I felt it would make local small scale farm stands the first choice for consumers over large scale grocery stores. We are making progress every day.
During the process of promoting and building the number of producers and consumers that use National CSA Directory, we discovered there were a large number of vendors wanting to sell and promote their all-natural retail goods on our site. We didn’t want to muddy what we were trying to accomplish with the promotion of organic food consumption. It became clear what we needed to do, expand our efforts. It was at that point that the idea and development for All Things Natural began.
Society is on the cusp of change. We are at the end of an industrial revolution moving towards an environmentally friendly, green revolution. Every day more and more people are becoming aware of what they are consuming, and the effects that it has on the environment. The people leading this movement need a one-stop shopping experience. At All Things Natural we are leading the charge in this area, by providing not just a platform for all-natural commerce, but for local synthetic-free agriculture as well, all at one shop.
Individuals are responsible for what they put in their own bodies, but we share the planet. This means everyone is responsible for how those choices affect the environment. Is Convenience today worth the price we will pay tomorrow? At All Things Natural, we think not.
