ABOUT TAO LIFE
WHO WE ARE
Founded in Rochester, N.Y., on the Taoist principle of living a balanced life in harmony with nature, Tao Life is a mission-driven, service-focused wellness media and lifestyle brand with a goal of informing, inspiring and empowering you to live well naturally — in body, mind and spirit. Through a journalistic approach to content, engaging online learning and an ever-growing range of products, we place overall well-being and self-care in the context of the world we live in, delivering trusted guidance, encouragement and resources backed by both credentials and real-world results.
OUR CORE VALUES
Protecting the planet we call home is a priority for Tao Life. We work constantly to reduce our ecological footprint and protect the health of our natural environment and our customers — from sourcing recycled, reclaimed and earth-friendly materials to opting for minimal packaging and reusing shipping materials.
Tao Life is a multicultural company that embraces and supports diversity, valuing all individuals for their unique backgrounds, qualities, viewpoints, experiences, skills and contributions — and we foster inclusivity by ensuring our content, learning experiences and product offerings are as diverse as the people we serve.
At Tao Life, not only do we believe in sharing, caring and giving back, we seek to drive the cultural conversation, spark global movements and propel meaningful change by informing, educating and inspiring our audiences and customers to have a positive impact in people’s lives in their communities and beyond.
OUR FUTURE PLANS | A SMALL BUSINESS WITH BIG DREAMS
We’re currently working on plans to establish a year-round, nonprofit retreat and community in an idyllic natural setting on a tract of land in Western New York where teachers, practitioners and seekers of knowledge, health, healing and transformation from around the region can learn, share, grow and escape into nature to balance and nourish the body, mind and spirit.
SHOPPING WITH US
At Tao Life, we are committed to doing business in ways that are socially conscious, environmentally responsibility and celebrate nature. To that end, our e-commerce site not only offers things that are mindfully made with exceptional quality and premium materials and ingredients, we focus on four primary types of hand-curated products.
When you shop items made from recycled, reclaimed or environmentally-friendly materials, or pre-owned found and vintage items, you contribute to a more sustainable planet.
Purchasing handmade objects not only supports makers and artisans while preserving arts & crafts traditions, hand-craftsmanship produces high-quality products that stand the test of time.
Most of our products are made from sustainably-sourced wood, stone, leather, wool, cork and other materials that showcase nature’s beauty and meet high environmental standards.
When you shop Fair Trade, you do your part to help ensure fair and safe labor practices for workers, improve their livelihoods and empower them to invest in their communities.
LEARNING WITH US
Our soon-to-launch online platform offers video classes, educational events and learning experiences that provides a wellspring of original content that’s been curated with your wants and needs in mind. Whether you’re seeking ways to maintain, strengthen or heal your body; to begin or deepen your practice; to achieve balance; to re-energize your life; or just to learn something new, we aim to support you.
