Sustainability – what it means and how we’re involved
The MSC is the only wild-capture fisheries certification and ecolabelling program that adheres to the best practices of both the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization and ISEAL (the global membership association for sustainability standards).
Friends of the Sea is dedicated to the preservation of marine habitat. They now run a leading international certification project for products originated from both sustainable fisheries and aquaculture.
We’re confident that when we put their logos on our bottles, we’re giving our customers peace of mind knowing that they are taking part in one of our sustainability initiatives.
The three main pillars of sustainability are: Economic Development, Social Development, and Environmental Protection.
Take only pictures. Leave only footprints.
Sustainable economic development is about trying to find a way to give people what they want while giving future generations the same ability. Essentially this pillar boils down to enjoying the world without destroying it for the future.
Education is key.
The goal of sustainable social development is to protect people from harmful agents. This can be anything from pollution to homelessness. The better educated people are about the potential issues facing the world the better equipped we are to fight against them to make everyone happier and healthier.
Recycle. Reduce. Reuse.
Finally, there is sustainable environmental protection. This is the area that most directly impacts Nature’s Way, and why we partner with the Marine Stewardship Council and Friends of the Sea. Recycling, reducing, and reusing, are the three biggest ways we can help protect the planet for future generations. It’s also important to work with partners who care about keeping emissions low and use the incentives that are provided by various governments bodies to make moves towards renewable resources.
