Who We Are

Ahimsa is a Yogic concept that means non-violence. Non-violence can be applied to relationships, communication styles, dietary habits, social impact, sustainable practices and many other lifestyle choices. At davidji, inc., we strive to operate with sustainability at the forefront of our mission to serve our community and environment at the highest level. Ahimsa stands as the cornerstone of our company philosophy. Like a meditation practice, Ahimsa is a lifestyle choice that we are constantly cultivating, enhancing, and refining. Through the principles of refuse, reuse, reduce and recycle, progress will be made in the realm of sustainable environmental practices, and with the influence of compassion, kindness, gratitude and love we are advancing our social mindfulness.

In our efforts to support Ahimsa as a lifestyle, we also work with and support like-minded companies such as Next Generation Yoga, Blue Courage and Light Bridge Hospice, which are guiding lights in their respective spheres of influence. You can find their information on our “Friends of davidji” page. And remember to adopt your next pet!
