Elizabeth's story

I was raised in a large family to understand the benefits of eating fresh and organic foods. My grandparents grew up in rural communities where it was necessary to grow and harvest food on their own, so they taught us the value of consuming food in the harvest to table fashion. This idea resonated amongst all my brothers, cousins, and me as the next generation.

My childhood ideals inspired my work later on in life, when I worked at the first ever farmers market in California. Later, I worked for a wholesale food company, and through my individual sales and marketing skills brought “Lydia’s Organics” into 26 different Whole Foods stores. Through my work at Lydia’s, I learned about the benefits of Himalayan salt, and became inspired to start my own company.

Himalayan salt, the purest in the world, had been a staple in my life for the past eleven years. I knew the benefits of the product, and felt that everyone deserved access to this unique and mineral-rich resource. This is when I started my own business and implemented an aspect of charity into my business model in which I donate 10 percent of my net profits to Oxfam, The Dalai Lama Foundation, and The Marin Ceres Project.
