The Moonbeam Philosophy in Action
At Moonbeam, we believe in embodying the positive changes we want in the world. By boldly living our philosophy, we hope to inspire others to do the same .
We sum it up in the the motto “Do Good, Enjoy Life!”
But there is a lot more to it than that…
Responsibly Sourced Materials, Locally Made Products
The truth is, most nylon hammocks are mass-produced in factories in Indonesia and China from Asian manufactured nylon fabric. Even the largest camping hammock manufacturers employ only a handful of American employees.
We believe in something a little different. We are creating living-wage jobs in Maine, and instead of using cheap Asian nylon, we are proud to use American-made Silktique® nylon from Westmark Corp, of Connecticut.
Moonbeam believes in transitioning to sustainable power sources. Thats why we use solar powered LED lighting in our workspace, with plans to move to a 100% solar powered facility by 2018. Help us become the first 100% solar powered hammock company by spreading the good word about Moonbeam Hammocks!
Moonbeam cares deeply about the environment. To show our gratitude to the Earth, and off-set our footprint, we plant two trees with every hammock we sell through Treesforthefuture.org and their Forest Garden Program.
The Forest Garden Program is a simple, replicable and scalable approach with proven success. By planting specific types of trees and crops in a systematic manner over a four year period, families can change their lives forever. Forest Gardens provide families with sustainable food sources, livestock feed, products to sell, fuel wood and up to a 500% increase in their annual income.
