Have you heard of ‘The Story of Stuff’ campaigns? Look out for their new site, being launched on Wednesday 21 July…
Sheepdrove applauds ‘The Story of Stuff’ which is doing a great job of raising awareness about the disaster capitalism we’re all wrapped up in, and why all of our STUFF might not be as great as we think it is.
Now they are tackling the toxic cosmetics found in every home and handbag. What frightening chemicals will you use today? We suggest you shop with Neals Yard Remedies!
Why choose real organic skin care?
Did you know…
The skin is the body’s largest organ, an active interface between our bodies and the environment? Sixty per cent of what you put on your skin ends up in your blood stream, so we believe it’s really important to be fully aware of what’s in the products you use.
Over the last 50 years, tens of thousands of new chemicals have been developed, most of which have never been properly tested on humans. We are absorbing a vast array of these new synthetic chemicals from our food, our toiletries, and our immediate environment. Surely it can be no coincidence that over the same time period, the incidences of illness such as eczema, allergies and even cancers have greatly increased.
We may not be able to avoid all of these chemicals, but Neals Yard Remedies believe it makes sense to do what we can to minimise contact wherever possible.
Yesterday we hosted a visit by students on the BSc Sustainable Land Management from Hadlow College. Led by our Manager for Biodiversity and Alternative Energy, Jason Ball, they learned about the farm’s organic production and the diversified business including the Sheepdrove Eco Conference Centre, herb production for Neal’s Yard Remedies, the chicken abattoir and butchery unit, organic butchers shops and our home delivery meat hampers.
They were very interested in our projects on renewable energy, sustainable water management, waste management, and wildlife. Two of the most tangible models for sustainable practice include the Eco Conference Centre and the Reedbed System which treats all our waste water, returning it to the chalk cleaner than it was when we abstracted it from the chalk below.
Update: the students started a blog to share their discoveries.
