Made for the Extreme, Enjoyed Every Day

The systems are easy to use—no electricity, tools or plumbing needed. Enjoy clean, delicious purified water that retains the healthy minerals your body needs for an average of less than 2 cents per gallon.

Each pair of long-lasting Black Berkey® Purification Elements can treat up to 6,000 gallons (or about 5 years of typical use) before needing replacement.

OUR WHY

As consumers ourselves, we are constantly seeking out products for our everyday needs that are as natural, non-toxic, biodegradable and as resource-responsible as possible.

OUR STANDARDS

We have chosen products with

  • The highest quality ingredients and materials, as close to nature and as clean, organic and chemical-free as possible.
  • Limited packaging that is either biodegradable, recyclable or reusable, minimal plastic (goal: zero to minimal waste!
  • Long-lasting and/or multiple uses
  • A “circular” mindset, or consideration for the entire lifecycle of the item. Specifically, our Lady Farmer clothing is designed for biodegradability, which is why we don’t use elastic, zippers, closures, plastic buttons, etc. Anything on the garment that is not the fabric itself can be easily removed and recycled. The fabrics we use (hemp, organic cotton, linen, lyocell, wool) are selected with the highest regard for the human and planetary health, from the cultivation of the raw materials, to production, throughout consumer use and ultimately to the end of the product’s functional life.

  • That you will understand the purpose and value of choosing to purchase and use paradigm-shifting products
  • That you will be an ongoing example of the new conscious consumer to those who know and love you
  • That you will feel free to provide us with honest feedback on any of our offerings and efforts.
