the inspiration that creates our soap…
Inspiration comes in many forms. One particular form is that of a hero. Dr. Vandana Shiva is a philosopher, environmental activist, author and eco feminist. Dr. Shiva’s powerful message and her voice for the people is a force to be reckoned with. She works to implement social justice for farmers, balance with the environment, water rights for all people, seed democracy, and food rights.
Based in India, Dr. Shiva founded Navdanya. Navdanya is a network of seed keepers and organic producers spread across 16 states in India. Navdanya has helped set up 65 community seed banks across the country, trained over 5,00,000 farmers in seed sovereignty, food sovereignty and sustainable agriculture over the past two decades, and helped setup the largest direct marketing, fair trade organic network in the country.
mōksa organics looks to Dr. Shiva and her work as our source of inspiration. We aspire to follow in her footsteps as we build our business around the principles and ideals that impart equality, conservation, respect, and balance of the Earth’s resources that sustain us. This is why we like to say we’re so much more than soap. Our company and our products reflect what we live and love.
Below is an interview with Dr. Shiva and Bill Moyers. We encourage you to take 10 minutes and listen to this beautiful living legend.
