Help support a great cause – supplying organic eggs and produce to those in need

Ryan Hanifan is a man with a mission.  He and his family believe in helping others and donate regularly to their local foodbanks.  They believe that everyone should have access to quality organic produce no matter what their income.  Help them make this a reality.

Ryan has partnered with Noir Naturals to offer handmade goat’s milk and coconut milk soaps to help him reach his goal.  Proceeds of each purchase from his store will go toward putting food on Whitehouse, Ohio community tables.


How we live green at Noir Naturals

Yesterday was St. Patrick’s Day and we’re still thinking about green – green living, that is.  At Noir Naturals, we believe in sustainable practices and greener living.  Our Green America Silver Certification is important to us in the office and in our personal lives.  Not only does Noir Naturals keep it greener, our team members do, too.  We asked our team to share how they live greener lives and they each do something a little differently.

Charles:
I try to turn off lights in the house and my workshop to conserve electricity. I run a lot of appliances in my shop at any point in time. Before I leave for the day I double check that all burners are off, and plugged out as well. I am still working on getting into a routine to turn off TV’s in the house and my projector in my man cave, so I can play a greater role in conservation.

Everyl-Ann:
I try to use as much natural light as possible. We have many windows in our house and office so I utilize the natural light as much as possible. I recently bought a solar recharge gadget for my iPhone, so I use this to recharge whenever I can. I also keep all packing peanuts from packages I get to reuse in the business.

Danalyn:
I use all natural hair and skin products

Sheryl:
I use natural light as much as possible, unplug electronics not in use, use led and compact florescent light bulbs, recycle, reuse as much as possible, buy pantry staples in bulk to reduce packaging, and binge cook – cook in large batches and freeze to reduce gas and electricity use later.
