The Denver Post - - BUSINESS - By Shay Cas­tle

Longmont-based nat­u­ral sun­screen com­pany God­dess Gar­den re­cently an­nounced the close of a $3 mil­lion Se­ries A fund­ing round led by Van­cou­ver ven­ture cap­i­tal firm Re­newal Funds. The funds will be used to help ex­pand dis­tri­bu­tion, com­pany of­fi­cials said. God­dess Gar­den prod­ucts can be found in nearly 10,000 U.S. stores.

“We want to make as big an im­pact as we can,” founder and CEO Nova Cov­ing­ton said in a state­ment.

Cov­ing­ton also re­vealed plans to launch an af­fil­i­ated non­profit in 2017 to help pro­tect co­ral reefs and ed­u­cate the pub­lic about the ef­fects that chem­i­cals in nonor­ganic sun­screens can have on wildlife and nat­u­ral habi­tats.

“Re­newal Funds’ mis­sion is to sup­port com­pa­nies that re­duce our col­lec­tive en­vi­ron­men­tal foot­print on the planet,” said Paul Richard­son, CEO of the fund. “God­dess Gar­den’s goal of dis­plac­ing toxic, chem­i­calladen sun­screens with safe, or­ganic and min­eral-based prod­ucts makes them an ideal part­ner for us.”
