Local Business Spotlight
Every month we choose a local business that not only excels in positively impacting our community but offers an experience or product that can make a difference in our clients' lives. This month we have chosen to highlight Trillium Organics. A company that strives to educate people about the importance of making healthier personal care choices for themselves and their children.
“We dream of a world in which we can once again walk in balance. Balance of Humans and Earth, Balance among the various gender manifestations. Balance within our own bodies, homes, families, tribes and communities. Where regenerative agriculture and conscious production is the norm, and conventional petrochemical farming and formulation is remembered as an ignorant mistake. We dream of a world where children can safely eat any food they are offered, without fear of sickness from additives, pesticides and GMO's. A world in which taking a bath is a delightful, healthy, life affirming treat rather than a toxic dip in hormone impersonators, endocrine disruptors and carcinogens”
Karen Ciesar is committed to making healthy organic products for her family, and yours.
Trillium Organics was founded in 1994 by Karen, when she traded up advocating for women's rights as an attorney to educating and providing women with safe, non-toxic personal care options. After watching both of her grandmothers fall prey to cancer, she hoped that her own children could enjoy a healthier life from making healthier choices. One small problem, in 1994, Organic personal care was an unheard of concept, and the toxic dangers of conventional personal care were not very well understood.
Starting with Calendula infused, Baby Bottom Balm, she set out on the quest to create a clean safe product that would replace toxic body wash and lotion. It took three years of bathing in everything organic from coffeegrounds to oatmeal that resulted in Organic Body Polish. That first product that 'does it all", remains the cornerstone of the company.
Today, Trillium Organics is still a small company of dedicated women, making each product in small batches and pouring them each by hand. Yet now, their products are sold all across America, in Malaysia, Brunei(soon), Hong Kong, Saudi Arabia, India, England, Colombia.
“We are thrilled with the globally growing enthusiasm about living healthier lives. It is a dream come true to create and provide products that help people realize the joy and beauty of healthy skin”
