If you’re paying attention, you know one of the biggest topics of discussion in our world today is climate change and the plastic problem. Plastic straws have been replaced with paper straws, however this is only a band-aid solution. What about the plastic cup and lid that we are putting our paper straw into? What about the packaging almost everything we buy comes in?
A cornerstone of our mission here at TORRAIN is not only to produce and promote sustainable products that improve the environment and support local communities, but also to encourage sustainable travel practices. I recently had the privilege of taking a long-awaited solo trip (my first ever) to Thailand ~ a place I had been dreaming of going to for a solid 10 years.
Here at TORRAIN we are passionate about looking good and feeling even better, and at the root of both these concepts lies in our connection to the natural beauty of everyday life. Our company was first conceived traversing a dynamic marketplace against the backdrop of Cambodia’s majestic mountain ranges, tropical rainforests, and breathtaking coastal views.
One looks back with appreciation to the brilliant teachers, but with gratitude to those who touched our human feelings. The curriculum is so much necessary raw material, but warmth is the vital element for the growing plant and for the soul of the child. ~ Carl Jung
My parents were born and raised in Syria and growing up as an American, it’s been an interesting road navigating the connection to my roots.
