THE TAHAMÍ STORY
The founder of Tahamí By Nature has been making handcrafted bath and
body products since 2009. From the very beginning, many of our ingredients were
sustainably sourced from South America - a tradition that continues. After
years of encouragement to sell our our products, we picked a name that
represented the region which inspired and provides us with beneficial ingredients. As a result, we took our name from a group of South American indigenous people - the Tahamí Indians.
The South American rainforests, with the
largest being the Amazon, are famed for their immense biodiversity. The number
of plant species is the highest on Earth with one Ecuadorian rainforest
supporting more than 1,100 tree species. In the region, scientist have
identified at least 438,000 plant species of economic and social interest, with
many more remaining to be discovered or cataloged. The total number of tree
species in the region is estimated at 16,000. It is our appreciation for Mother Earth that lead Tahamí to make the following pledge when creating our company:
Sustainability - Tahamí is committed to purchasing
supplies from suppliers that are committed to sustainability and the
maintenance of biodiversity.
No Animal Testing – We make every effort to only purchase
products that were not tested on animals. This makes Crimson and Banjo very happy.
(See our fur babies below)
Environmentally Friendly – We consistently look for methods and practices that reduce our environmental footprint while creating high quality products. We
are not where we want to be, but are making great strides. Just tryin' to get it right!!!
