Want to change the world? Start a mindful business.Organic India [OI] and Om Organics, based in Colorado, offer certified organic, biodynamic and fair trade herbal teas, supplements, clothes and gifts—providing fair-labor for 1,057 Indian families whose farms span 13,000 acres of crops that OI’s paid to get 3rd-party-certified organic. But that’s not all: OI pays for training and the conversion of fields to organic/biodynamic. And get this: the farmers are free to sell to whomever offers them the best pricemeaning OI pays a premium for the very crops they’ve helped to grow. Finally, OI works with local tribespeople who ethically wildcraft herbs on 592,000 acres of forest that OI has converted to certified organic. Inspired? Go get your MBA:omorganics.com
