Nomad Wax Co. joins 1% for the Planet
In May, Nomad became a member of 1% for the Planet.
This is something I've dreamed about since I started the company 3.5 years ago. My vision was to build a company where money wasn't the sole driver, and the means mattered as much as the end. (I'd worked places where getting to the end goal of MONEY was all that mattered, and how we got there was of no consequence. It took a brutal toll on the wellbeing of everyone and everything in its path. I decided I would do things differently.)
As such, everything we do is examined through the lens of impact to people, pets + planet in three key areas:
GOOD FOR YOU
Obsessive ingredient selection only using phthalate-free, sulfate-free, paraben-free, cruelty-free, organic and vegan ingredients that are safe and healthy.
MADE WITH INTENTION
Handmade in small batches with care & attention, aesthetically beautiful and sustainable packaging with minimal environmental impact.
Products to delight, connect and inspire positive intention and community and create joy in everyday life.
Part of this operating approach is to contribute to organizations in our community and in the world that matter to the means as well as to the end. Organizations we've supported to date include Make-A-Wish Nebraska, American Foundation for Suicide Prevention Nebraska, Crohn's & Colitis Foundation, PLFAG-Omaha, National Park Foundation, North American Invasive Species Management Association and the Nebraska Humane Society. As a member of 1% for the Planet, we will be able to continue to do this on an even broader scale. I'm excited to be a member of this organization and to pledge 1% of our revenue to supporting our corner of the planet for decades to come.
