CRS Goals

GlasTeo Ltd also has a strong social entrepreneurial and spiritual ethos as the foundation of all that it does. As part of our philosophy we are reinvesting 25% of all and any net profits into education initiatives in the areas we are working in.

This fund is to help develop life skills training, innovation, creativity,  social enterprise attitudes and more amongst a variety of people, from young to senior people at risk or in need of help in one form or another. The educational foundation will provide counselling and help with addictions, mental health issues or just mentor those in need of some good business or personal advice and some start up finance.

We are currently working with asylum seekers, young at risk people and generally in rural communities that range from farmers to artists who need help with a new path in their lives.

Hemp products, environmental, human, animal and plant wellbeing with real spiritual awareness and integrity is at the heart of all our relationships.  We understand and work towards our basic Oneness with all of humanity and living beings from a deep spiritual connection.

The Universal Laws of Dharma are a central part and the foundation of GlasTeo Ltd. It is a part of our DNA. This philosophy is the foundation of all that we undertake, we make decisions based on every stakeholder on this planet benefiting. 

Vision

Hemp sequesters CO2 and will also help reduce the amount of methane a most dangerous greenhouse gas being emitted by livestock farmers when they change to grow more Hemp instead of Livestock.

Hemp can also replace the toxic products made by the Petro Chemical and other polluting industries like Cement, Clothing/Fashion, Paper/Wood, Pharma, Farming, Motor/ Aviation with Biodegradable or Eco friendly ones.

At GlasTeo we are nurturing sustainable Hemp ecosystems, education, innovations and practices that focus on delivering viable climate change solutions. 

New sustainable industries can be established making up to 50,000 products that Hemp can produce.

GlasTeo will help to develop / advise on any Hemp business or initiative that has the wellbeing of the environment and all life forms at the centre of all that we do.

We are currently working with organisations like Teagasc https://www.teagasc.ie – the Agriculture and Food Development Authority of Ireland to inform and enlighten the State sector concerning industrial hemp and education. To that end we initiated and collaborated with Teagasc and the Hemp working Group on organising and promoting the First Irish Hemp Summit on 20th June 2019 (details on this website) that was held at the Teagasc Food Research Centre, Ashdown, Dublin.
