The “Green Economy” In Action

Aired 12 February 2019 – 5:00 PM EDT

An Interview with Purium Co-Founder Dave Sandoval

“We don’t need to save the planet, just spend it more wisely.” — Swami Beyondananda



There’s been a lot of buzz recently about “green jobs” and the Green New Deal as a way of restoring the ecology and renewing the economy. However, the overall plan seems to gloss over the inconvenient truth that we must restore the soil and microbiome, and “overgrow” chemical farming and glyphosates (Round-Up) that depletes our soil.

Our guest this week on Wiki Politiki is Dave Sandoval, co-founder of Purium, provider of plant-based nutritional products since 1994, and a successful “green” entrepreneur who DOES care about the soil. As Swami has said, “Going green can get us out of the red and keep us in the pink.”

Dave Sandoval, has made it his life’s mission to change the world for the better. From nutrition and the environment to domestic violence and poverty, Dave has advocated on behalf of many causes. He’s invited people into his home to personally help them get healthy, lose weight or achieve their goals. And, through his mentorship program, he has inspired all kinds of people, including celebrities, to get out into the world and make a difference. Dave founded Purium in post-riot Long Beach with Gandhi’s philosophy, “Be the change you wish to see in the world.”

That’s when he started making 100% pure products out of his home in 1994, and he now has 100 pharmacists and almost 30,000 salespeople around the world working for his company Purium Health Products, which hit $47 million in revenue last year and is expecting to hit $75 million in revenue this year — a 276% growth in just three years.

If you’re curious how your buying choices can enrich the soil as well as your own microbiome, and wondering how and what you eat impact your wellbeing, please tune in for this discussion with a leading edge business person with top-line products and a triple bottom line.
