Caring for the Earth

Large-scale businesses have taken their toll on the environment - clearing forests, depleting precious natural resources, clogging up the air and in the end, polluting our water and soil and producing more waste than our landfills can handle. We believe God created the world and put us on it to care for the earth. We have a responsibility to not only reduce our negative impact, but to make positive changes to the earth.

At Dignity, we are radically changing what it looks like to do business in a way that restores people and the planet.

WE WILL USE EVERY PART OF THE COCONUT!

Coconuts have six parts. Globally, most coconut companies take the oil or the water of the coconut, and discard the rest. As much as 80% of each coconut is wasted - piled up to rot! Our brilliant engineers spent months researching the properties of coconuts and found there were creative uses for each part.

Besides the oil and the water, we discovered a way to grind the shell to make a renewable filler for stronger, lighter plastics. We discovered the husk fibers could be used to make erosion-control blankets and the peat was an incredible conditioner to give new life to stale soil.

It is our goal to use every part of the coconut. As we grow, we can purchase the equipment to become zero waste.

REDUCE

There is beauty in the simple so we only buy what we need. Whenever possible, we buy products made locally in the Philippines.

REUSE

We take the impure fresh water that saturates our region, purify it to meet our needs, and release it for others to use safely—a model we are helping others to learn.

RECYCLE

We recycle the heat from our plant’s air conditioning to produce all the heat we need in our production method, dramatically reducing our carbon footprint. 

We are empowering our farmers to farm better and smarter.

We have trained over 200 farmers in organic farming techniques. In addition, we have planted over 550 coconut seedlings to prepare for the next generation of coconut trees. This year we will distribute over 1,500 seedlings from our nursery to local farmers.

Traditional Rice Krispy treats use butter as a main ingredient, but substituting it with raw coconut oil makes a big difference! Besides the fact that it’s delicious, Raw coconut oil has so many good benefits. It strengthens the immune system because of the lauric and caprylic acid in the coconut oil, and it regulates metabolism because it is processed more easily by the body as MCT oil (medium-chain triglycerides).

Avoiding sweets needs more than Jedi mind tricks. Maybe you keep sweets on the top shelf because leaving them at eye level is just too much for you to handle. Maybe you put them in a jar or cabinet. Maybe you have others hide them from you. But whatever you do, it’s hard. We often feel helpless to sugar’s power and slip into The Dark Side of harmful sugary snacks.
