Founded with Water...
Nature's Gate was founded over 30 years ago using nature as an inspiration and guide. Nature's Gate's founders, Leo and Vladimir hand collected rainwater, blended it with natural herbs from their herb shop, and created the very first Rainwater Shampoo. They started giving it away to their friends and customers that came into the herb shop and soon it became a phenomenon all along Venice Beach.
Nature's Gate continues to be inspired by their surroundings and create formulas that combine proven botanical, herbal and floral treatments with modern ingredients and techniques. Nature's Gate offers a wide range of products that address personal care needs from the inside out.

The Water Crisis
Lack of access to clean water is one of the largest public health issues of our time. This water crisis is condemning millions of people to live in poverty, without access to adequate health care, education, or economic opportunities.
Facts About Water:
- Only 1% of the Earth’s water is suitable for human uses and consumption
- 97% of the world's water is salty or otherwise undrinkable and 2% is locked in ice caps and glaciers
- If the world's water fitted into a bucket, only one teaspoonful would be drinkable
- Worldwide, nearly 1.1 billion people (roughly 1 in six people) lack access to safe drinking water
- The lack of clean, safe drinking water is estimated to kill almost 5,000 children per day
- Out of the 2.2 million unsafe drinking water deaths in 2004, 90% were children under the age of five
- Women and children suffer disproportionately from the lack of clean water as they are responsible for gathering water. Many must walk an estimated six miles every day to get enough water for their families
Rainwater harvesting is a simple and low cost technique to generate sustainable & permanent safe water sources.
- RWH is a proven solution and one of the oldest recorded hydrological activities
- RWH is practical with supply and consumption at the same site
- RWH provides better quality of water than traditional sources of water
- RWH is cost effective, requiring almost no spare parts and no energy
- RWH installations are simple to construct on existing community structures and easy to maintain
- RWH delivers a permanent water supply where it rains
- A modest rainwater harvesting system can supply water to an entire community
- The average person in the developing world uses 10 liters of water daily for their drinking, washing and sanitation needs; The average North American uses 400 liters per day.
Results with Rainwater
Rainwater harvesting yields not only safe, clean drinking water, but also has numerous environmental, social and economic benefits. Rainwater is a renewable resource and its exploitation does not cause any harm to the environment, nor to future sources of water. People that consume clean water and practice safe hygiene & sanitation are healthier!
- Alleviates poverty. With healthier children and less time spent collecting water, women are able to engage in other income-generating activities to support their families.
- Improves sanitation. Increased water supplies encourages and enables:
- Proper hygiene, such as handwashing, thereby reducing the spread of water-related diseases
- Bathing fully to prevent water-washed diseases such as trachoma, scabies, typhus & lice
- Cultivating a kitchen garden for household consumption
- Empowers the community to manage their own water supplies.
Nature's Gate's Goals:
- Complete 8 new rainwater harvesting systems by 2012
- Deliver clean drinking water to a minimum of 3,300 families by 2012
- Educate peers, consumers, retailers and local communities about the world water crisis and the benefits of rainwater harvesting
Nature's Gate's Projects
The following is an example of the amazing work that WaterAid has completed during the past year with Nature’s Gate support:
In Konso Woreda, Ethiopia, access to safe water is limited to as little as 32% of the population. As a result of water shortages and poor sanitary and hygiene practices, the incidence of water-related diseases is particularly acute, school attendance especially by girls is extremely low, and women and girls spend up to 9 hours a day fetching and carrying water.
In addition to installing wells, WaterAid Ethiopia is promoting rainwater harvesting structures at schools and health clinics. This helps ensure the health of school children and those with serious illness. This innovative approach to providing water offers communities a primary water source and delivers a consistent, clean water supply during the dry season and during unpredictable droughts.
