TRANSPARENCY, SINCERITY, & AUTHENTICITY
Our company was founded in 2000, before the “green wave” and before wider interest in sustainability, eco-friendly, biologique, etc. From the outset our founder, Rich Cohen, started Distant Village with an innovative and new concept of practical sustainability. This followed a deep commitment to social and environmental responsibility, while focused on business strategy in a competitive capitalistic world. In 2000, the novel concept of Kind Capitalism© was born with the founding of Distant Village.
Recently there are many wonderful new products and services focused on sustainability. Public awareness and interest is growing. To aid the public with information and to bring our clients as close as possible to experiencing and understanding the impact of their Distant Village products and packaging, our company leverages new technology and open communications to provide a clear and honest picture of our practices to the world.
We accomplish this by encasing our 3BL with a commitment to these three principles in all we do:
- Transparency – We proudly share and promote our practices internally and externally, sharing our deficiencies and our plans to improve.
- Sincerity – Our history, product lines, and commitment, first and foremost, is committed to 3BL practices.
- Authenticity – Our business practices with artisans always follow fair trade practices. All designs and materials follow the best possible sustainable practices which are reasonable, fair and practical.
