I am Janelle Nightingale, the Executive Director of Agri Planet Africa. We aim to make sustainable and ecologically responsible organic fertilizer for commercial use. By doing so, we can help farmers become more profitable while reducing their environmental impact. We are committed to working with local farmers and producing a product that benefits the environment and is economically viable.
At Agri Planet Africa, we rely on the farmers in our community to provide us with cow manure which we use to produce our products. That’s why we need to build relationships with local farmers – not only do they provide us with the raw material necessary for production, but we also pay them for it. And when their cows reach the end of their lives or become ill, instead of selling them to butcheries, we buy them from the farmers so that they can live out their remaining days on our farm and continue providing us with manure for our fertilizer.
This is just one example of how our commitment to sustainability goes beyond product production and extends into every aspect of how we run our business. We recognize that without strong relationships with local communities, businesses like ours cannot thrive. That’s why building trust and understanding between ourselves and those who work in our communities is paramount to success. It’s also why we prioritize hiring locally whenever possible – not only does this ensure that members of our community have access to jobs, but it also helps build a sense of pride amongst those who live near our operation sites.
We are also committed to using resources responsibly and minimizing waste wherever possible – from implementing on-site conservation practices such as water recycling systems and energy-efficient lighting systems to ensuring that all packaging materials are recyclable or compostable. As an organization dedicated to preserving nature’s resources while helping others simultaneously, these initiatives are essential components of what makes Agri Planet Africa unique in its mission.
At Agri Planet Africa, I am proud to be part of a team dedicated not only to producing quality organic fertilizer but also going above and beyond in terms of creating a positive social impact in the local communities where we operate. By working together with local farmers, investing in sustainable solutions such as recycling water used during production cycles, partnering with animal rights organizations when purchasing cows from farms nearing end-of-life or sick stages, creating employment opportunities within these rural areas; as well as using recyclable or compostable packaging materials — We strive every day towards achieving a better future for everyone involved in an effort towards making this world a better place!
