Earth Day

It's Earth Day and I have been thinking a lot about Sal del Mar and our impact on our environment. We have been proud of the fact that our product does not cause pollution. When we started our business, it was important to find a product that not only was a gourmet sea salt that would enhance the taste of food, but also didn't cause pollution. We found such a sea salt "farm" on the Sea of Cortez and the sea salt is harvested using traditional, non-mechanical means. 

Our "packaging" for Sal del Mar's hand-embroidered bags is made of natural muslin and linen and is hand-embroidered by the women in Sabinito, Mexico. We enjoy a partnership that doesn't disrupt the traditional lifestyle of the village but, in fact, provides additional income to the women embroiders to help support their families.
