One Earth superfood blends are certified organic mixes of highly nutritious herbs and fruits that have been dried and ground into a powder that can be added to smoothies, juices, yoghurt, porridge, cakes and many other recipes.

Rather than buying lots of different health foods individually which is hugely expensive, One Earth blends have mixed everything together for you. Our blends therefore contain a broad spectrum of different vitamins and minerals.

Our blends don't contain any preservatives, synthetic vitamins or fillers. We don't add protein powder either. Just 100% natural and highly nutritious fruits, seeds, leaves and other botanicals. Just 1 serving of our Vanilla Zilla or Rejuvenate Your Soul blends will give you over 100% of your daily vitamin C needs.

Aimed at both children and adults, we have developed six blends each tailored to specific needs; whether it be to support the immune system, reduce tiredness or increase anti-oxidant intake which supports cell renewal and skin and hair health. There is something for everyone.

Susan has worked supporting small scale farmers all over the world. She is passionate about sustainable organic farming and campaigning for better nutrition for children in the UK. She has control over all of our ethical sourcing and operations.

Patra is a marketing and social media whizz and is supporting our international expansion. He is a health nut.

Merinda is heading up our One Earth expansion in Asia, she has a Masters in International Marketing and loves making her daughter superfood vanilla smoothies.

The One Earth movement has grown out of the need for better nourishment of our bodies, looking after global biodiversity and contributing to sustainable development. - There is only one Earth and we need to take care of it and ourselves.

One Earth is working with B’Ayoba in Zimbabwe helping baobab collectors create a better livelihood in the face of droughts and other hazards. In the future we hope to expand our social enterprise into other parts of Africa, South America and Asia.

We have spent the last 2 years conducting market research, developing our blends and working with our designers. Even though we know a lot about nutrition, it was vitally important for us to get the advice of an expert. We were lucky enough to secure the help of an amazing herbalist in Somerset who has worked with some of the top organic brands in the UK and has over 30 years of experience.

In 2016 we have received backing from Virgin StartUp who believe in the importance of our missions and goals and have given us a business mentor that has helped in developing our brand.

See us in British Vogue Magazine in April! We have been selected as their ‘Feast of Spring’!

We have also received considerable attention from buyers in Asia, boutique stores, gyms and our next steps are to secure distributors and stockists to work with.

We are raising £2,000 to enable us to showcase our amazing superfood blends at the largest organic trade show in the UK in April 2017 and at the BBC Good Food show in Birmingham in June 2017.

The organic trade show is the best place for us to launch our products and pitch to buyers of lots of different supermarkets, small retailers and whole sale buyers both from the UK and elsewhere around the world. This will enable us to expand our brand and get our products into more shops.

The BBC Good food show is the best place to really get in front of customers and really getting as many people as possible to try One Earth blends!

We have already paid over £2,000 for a booth space at the trade show at our own personal cost. We would love some help in making our booth look attractive to buyers and also to pay for a booth at the BBC Good Food Show. A breakdown of costs include:

·         Design of show booth: £150

·         Construction of show booth: £550

·         BBC Good Food Show booth space £1,300

If we reach our target any extra money will be spent on:

·         In-Store Tastings – If we are successful in finding our first retailer we would like to offer in store tasting programmes to encourage in store sales (£250 per store tasting)

All our progress will be shared on our Facebook page!

We have some really great rewards for our supporters. Everyone who supports us will get a special thank you on our Facebook page and a copy of our e-book.

Our rewards include:

For a £3 sponsorship we will send you a personalised ‘thank you’ on Twitter and Facebook

For £10 sponsorship we will send you 2 x 10g samples of our blends and a personalised ‘thank you’ on our Facebook page and twitter.

For those who sponsor over £15 we will send you 1 x full size pouch of one of our blends. You can choose from:

·         Rejuvenate Your Soul (Natural organic energy boosting blend)

·         Green Goodness (give yourself a deeply nourishing green vitamin boost)

·         Co Co Go Go (Matcha and raw cacao blend great for matcha cacao lattes!)

·         Shine Bright (full of anti-oxidant goodness from acai berries, moringa and baobab)

·         Chocolate Dream (for adults and kids, anyone who loves chocolate will love this chocolatey blend that’s really good for you and has no added sugar!)

·         Vanilla Zilla (for both adults and kids, it’s bursting with vitamin C for a great immunity boost. It makes a really good vanilla milkshake if you add milk and frozen banana to it and blend!)

For those supporting over £30 this increases to 2 x full size pouches

For those supporting over £50 this includes 2x full size pouches and 2 x 10g samples of our other blends (your choice of sample)

Our blends retail for between £18 and £24 - so this is a really great time to benefit from this deal.

Stock up on healthy treats and presents for friends!

Everyone will also receive a free e-book with lots of tasty recipes you can make using the blends too!

We aim to deliver to you by the end of April- May 2017.

  • Our organic ingredients are sourced in small batches from all over the world. Some ingredients, especially vanilla pods, are extremely susceptible to weather conditions and so sometimes some ingredients may take more time to reach us.
  • We outsource packing and postage to an organically certified company and so they will be sent out to you through them. We aim to send out all rewards in April - May 2017. This may extend to June if there are a lot of deliveries to make.

Q: Is everything organic?

A: Yes, all of our products are certified by the UK Soil Association

Q: Are your products vegetarian/vegan?

A: Yes, all of our products are vegetarian and most are vegan. Our vanilla blend contains bee pollen so it is vegetarian and not vegan.

Q: Are your blends gluten free?

A: Yes.

Q: Can children eat them?

A: Yes! Our Vanilla Zilla and Chocolate Dream were designed for kids- they taste great and contain loads of vitamin and minerals to support the immune system and brain function! Our blends are natural food and are suitable for everyone. However, Shine Bright and Coco Go Go contain matcha tea which contains caffeine- so these are for adults.

Q: How much do you take in 1 serving?

A: Adults: 1-2 teaspoons Children: 1 teaspoon
