When We Know Better
We Do Better

Dr. Maya Angelou said “I did then what I knew how to do. Now that I know better, I do better.” In our history there are figures who taught us all to know better and do better, and the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King is one of those figures. We would not be the people we are today without his deeply spiritual belief that we are on a personal and communal path towards justice.

In his Letter from a Birmingham Jail, Dr. King wrote “We are all caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly." This philosophy of our personal power and dignity and the importance of considering our impact on the world around us is with us daily at Pangea. We make decisions, small and large, based on how our choices change the lives of others and the earth for generations to come.

We also believe, as Dr. King did, that human connection and connection to place should inform how we live. He taught, spoke, acted, and lived from the belief that we can make the places we live into the promised land if we have the courage to be truth tellers and peace makers. In his last speech he said “ I want you to know tonight, that we, as a people, will get to the promised land.” We believe this too, if we all do our part. For us that part is how we do business, how we choose what goes into our products, and how we treat the people, animals, and environment around us.

For more than 20 years, Pangea has been committed to sourcing the best ingredients, from the most caring, ethical farmers around the globe. On the front of our packaging, you'll notice there's a topographical map. And that topographical map is actually a map of the region of the primary ingredient in each product. This map is a reminder of not only the places that our ingredients come from, but of the people that make these products possible. From soil to skin, we all have a choice. Once we know we have that choice, as producers and as consumers, we can do so much better we can Choose Human Care.
