Advertisers, Sponsors, Affiliates

It takes quite a bit of time and money to maintain our blog (, and to create content that we think you’ll find valuable. Our primary goal is to share what we learn so that more people can enjoy healthier, happier lives, and a richer connection to the ecology they’re a part of.

We also believe in paying ourselves for our hard work, which is why our blog has advertisers (the ads you see throughout this website) and “affiliate links.” Affiliate links are links to third-party products/services that we either use or recommend. The companies whose products we recommend are not paying us to recommend them (unless we’re writing a “sponsored post,” in which case we clearly disclose that information at the top of the article). Rather, we’re recommending them purely because we think they offer a great product/service. If you agree with our recommendation and make a purchase, those companies then pay us a small affiliate commission (kinda like when you buy a house, your realtor gets a commission). For instance, as an Amazon Associate, we earn from qualifying purchases.

We don’t have control over exactly which companies advertise on our website, but we do have complete control over what affiliate products and services we recommend. We’d never recommend an affiliate product or service that we didn’t think was excellent — in fact, we’ve often used them ourselves, which is why we’re recommending them in the first place.
