✨ Shop GREEN, Not PRIME ✨

Think Twice Before Shopping Prime…

What happens with your dollars 💵 when you do? 🤔

Dear WLH Community Member, 

You might already be aware that Prime Day is coming up next week.

Before you shop all those Prime Day deals, as a member of our conscious community, we’d love for you to please think for a moment about where your dollars will go when you do. Here’s a quick look at Amazon’s stats: 

  • More than 50% of Amazon’s products come from other countries, and 45% of them are from China (Yikes!)
  • Jeff Bezos’ current net worth is $193.4 billion USD, and it’s only growing.
  • Amazon generated almost 500 million pounds of plastic packaging last year, more than 22 million pounds of which ended up in rivers and oceans. Very sad 😧!


TAKE THE LOTUS LOCAL CHALLENGE!

✨ SHOP GREEN, NOT PRIME ✨

Amazon bought Whole Foods four years ago, but we've been organic for FORTY! 👍

White Lotus Home has been ahead of the Green game for decades, and we'd like to keep it that way! 

With Prime Day on its way, we challenge you to take the Lotus Local Challenge and shop GREEN this week before Prime Day even starts! 

Here’s what happens when you buy from a small sustainable ♻️ business instead of a billion-dollar megacorporation: 

⭐ Small businesses like ours utilize other local small businesses like banks, service providers, and farms.

⭐ For every $100 you spend at local businesses, $68 will stay in the community! (1) Woo-Hoo! 🙌

⭐ Independent retailers return more than three times as much money per dollar of sales to the community in which they operate than chain competitors.

⭐ Supporting local businesses is good for the environment because they often have a smaller carbon footprint than larger companies. 🌎

Happy Sleep 😴 Important WOOL Update!

A Letter from Our President

Dear WLH Community Member, 

Back in 2005 when I began working as the General Manager of our great company, we used New Zealand raised wool that was then processed into batting in the USA for all of our wool products. 

Since New Zealand truly is the best in the world when it comes to the wool industry, this setup resulted in great, high quality products for our customers. 👏

Then in 2008, something happened with imports that made the prices increase dramatically, and our company was forced to switch to USA raised wool. 

The problem with this, however, is that USA raised sheep are not always treated as well as the sheep are in New Zealand. Not only is this sad and disappointing from an ethical standpoint, it also can result in a lower quality product. 😦

   

As you know, our company is committed to creating healthy, ethical, long-lasting, high quality products so you can enjoy and feel great about your purchases. With this standard in mind and now that global markets have shifted, we’ve decided to make the switch back to New Zealand raised wool that’s processed into batting here in the US.

We’re confident that this switch will offer you the best possible wool products, craftsmanship that will last even longer, and wool products you can feel really great about because you know the animals are treated well & raised ethically. 👍

As you know, we love and prefer to use American grown fibers as much as possible, but when it comes to wool, everyone that uses, works with, and loves wool knows that there’s truly nothing better than New Zealand wool. 😁

With that, we are thrilled to begin offering you even higher quality products that are more ethically sound at the same great prices we have been for years. 

Here’s to happy sheep 🐑 and happier sleep 😴

Sincerely, 

- Marlon Pando

  President of White Lotus Home

 

OUR PROMISE TO YOU 🙌

You’ll Always Receive Traceable, Farm to Market Wool from Happy Sheep in NZ! 🐑

When you purchase any White Lotus Home wool product or bulk wool fibers, you can rest assured you're receiving a high-quality product you can trust. Grown in New Zealand from free-range, pasture-fed sheep, then processed right here in the USA, all of our wool is scoured using only gentle NPEO-free detergents without bleach. It then goes through a rigorous quality control process to ensure its integrity.
