FRIENDS FOR THE EARTH OF THE MONTH
FIND OUT WHAT THEY DO SPECIAL
BIOYVY srls was born from the passion of two brothers for a modern agriculture with low environmental impact. Curious and innovative, with their ethical and eco-sustainable agro business project they make the Diatomaceous known in Italy.
We produce 98% natural cosmetics and, for each product sold, a tree is planted through the One Tree Planted association. We are working with an even greener perspective so with the next production we would like to start using an even more eco-friendly packaging.
Marina was turned off by the way many sustainability brands relied on fear and guilt to motivate their customers to care about the environment. She knew there was a better, more approachable way to get people excited about buying sustainable goods. So, she moved back to her native Vietnam to launch and develop EQUO’s line of alternative straws using raw, natural ingredients sourced from local farming communities, as a way to support regional economic growth.
We enjoy an ancient tradition in the cultivation of wheat and dried legumes, including chickpeas and lentils. In recent years we have also resumed the cultivation of ancient local wheat varieties such as Tumminia, Perciasacchi and Maiorca.
Green Valley Farm is dedicated to the production and selling of Biological Citrus and Extra Virgin Olive Oil Made in Sicily.
We are REusing materials from used items creating with a sustainable conceptour original RE-BORN Shoes, cruelty free.
We produce Eco-Sustainable products, hand-made, with hand draw patterns. The costumer can choose what they want us to draw in each product.
We are a young enterprise based in Sicily, we produce organic products and we try to respect our Earth and its fruits. With the guarantee of freshness and quality, we aim to ship our products to all Europe.
We cultivate our land in a biological way and respecting the environment. We produce citrus fruits, avocados, extra virgin olive oil. We do it in the south of beautiful Sicily. We serve customers and markets that respect the environment and have our same attention to respect for the environment.
We have developed our solid cosmetic line starting from these assumptions: awareness in the choice of raw materials, organic and with low environmental impact, recycled and recyclable packaging, so as not to swell landfills already collapsing, no use of plastics and petroleum derivatives, craftsmanship for a natural product that can make us and the planet feel good.
