Done with large corporations not taking responsibility for the negative impact they have on our planet and its inhabitants, Lisette decided to take action in her own hands....
I was always very consciously recycling and reducing my plastic consumption until I found out that most plastic is not recycled at all At best, only 32.5 percent ¹ of plastic is recycled in Europe. Several studies have shown that much of the plastic sent in for recycling ends up in landfills, or is incinerated. This means that even with all our effort, we are barely making a difference. Also, more plastic is being produced now than ever before. So, with your best intentions, you are rowing against the current.... The big multinationals could make a difference here, but they do nothing to little to reduce the damage they do to our planet. What matters to them is profit Also, many of those still engage in unethical practices regarding humans & animals. Did you know that animal testing on cleaning products is still allowed in Europe? Besides the fact that plastic is very harmful to our planet, researchers are also finding out more and more about how harmful it is to our health.² In 2021 and 2022 alone, more than 400 publications were published on the health effects of microplastics. - Diabetes - Obestias - Infertility - Low IQ + concencration - disorder in children - Breast cancer The list goes on... I knew there had to be a way to produce the products we use everyday without harming our environment, animals and people.... To leave a better world for our children, grandchildren, and further generations to come With the help of my son, Floris, we developed the first product of our cleaning line. An environmentally friendly and great smelling detergent with enormous washing power, with which we could take on "the big boys" We believe that companies should not only strive for profit, but also fulfill their duty to the environment, animals, people and society at large. From that point on, we have dedicated ourselves to reducing plastic waste, and giving back to people and animals in need, to really make a difference, and are now giving others the opportunity to do the same. Every time you use a Mother's Earth product, you reduce plastic waste and help a person or animal in need. Together, we turn a simple daily activity into something impactful and meaningful
Our vision is simple but powerful:
Making the world a holistically better place
Contributing to the world and its people by reducing plastic waste and giving back to people & animals in need
