Climate change is not just about climbing temperatures. It affects us all. From the destruction of ecosystems to extreme weather and depletion of crucial resources, the effects of climate change are extensive and largely irreversible.
Without a change in consumption habits, the future of our planet is uncertain. At Abundant Natural Health we feel strongly about our responsibility to “do our bit” and are always on the look-out for ways to make quality products that are also good for the environment. As a company, we like to know a) that we are using quality ingredients to create products that meets the needs of our consumers and b) that our ingredients are sustainably sourced and made.
Magnesium is the key to our Ocean Soothe®, Abundant Element® and Abundant Natural Health Magnesium ranges. As one of six critical minerals, there is a strong global demand for magnesium. Most of Australia’s magnesium industry comes from mining and low-grade magnesium oxide production, which didn’t sit right with us. So, we looked for alternative sources… which is where EcoMag comes in.
EcoMag – A Circular Economy
EcoMag Limited is an Australian company which produces specialty chemicals derived from high purity magnesium. They operate on the principle of a ‘circular economy’ and are committed to minimising their environmental footprint.
Sourced from seawater, which is rich in dissolved magnesium, their supply of magnesium is effectively inexhaustible. Rather than mining their magnesium, it is extracted from the waste streams and solar dried. As a result, EcoMag’s processes involve lower carbon emissions than other processes used by their competitors.
EcoMag also expects to be involved in using their magnesium in applications which help the environment, including pollution control, wastewater processing and carbon capture. It’s a company with a mission that we can really get behind. It was a no-brainer for us, really.
Our products contain high purity, quality organic certified magnesium from EcoMag. They are 100% natural, ethically sourced, and sustainably produced in environmentally friendly ways. We are proud of what we do both for our customers and for the environment.
