Every two months Dr. Bronner's chooses an organisation we align with to donate proceeds from the first 100 sales of our Deluxe Sample Packs. In December this year and January next, we are proud to support ORICoop (Organic & Regenerative Investment Cooperative).
ORICoop exists to nurture and increase the amount and the productivity of organically and regeneratively managed land in Australia, while supporting farmers to be better land stewards of our delicate ecological food system. Like Dr. Bronner's, ORICoop believes that healthy soil leads to healthy waterways, better food, resilient farmers and stronger communities. They work with organic and biodynamic farms and support farmers to transition their agricultural businesses for the better. By bringing together farmers, investors and eaters who are interested in long term investment pathways, ORICoop's vision is to create a more resilient Australian food and farming economy that can change the way our farmers do business.
Sharing this vision, Dr Bronner's, along with Rodale Institute, Patagonia, and several other non-profits, businesses and activists, has developed a standard for Regenerative Organic Certification (ROC) that farmers and producers can now use to certify their products as regenerative organic (read more here). We look forward to one day launching the ROC in Australia and continuing our relationship with organisations such as ORICoop who are changing the way we farm and consume, for the better.
The ORICoop team has also been working tirelessly on a bushfire appeal to support Australian farmers following the devastating fires in late 2019 and earlier this year. Dr. Bronner's is proud to have donated $10,715 to their appeal and encourages our customers to do what they can to support, as farmers and communities are still trying to rebuild and will be doing so for some time to come.
