One Product, One Tree

 

For every The Organic Skin Co. product you purchase, we promise to plant one tree. Let’s help the environment, together.

Every year, an estimated 15 billion trees are cut down.* It’s a number so staggering, it’s almost difficult to believe, and yet it’s happening.

National Geographic refers to deforestation as a ‘modern day plague’,** whilst climate scientists cite it as a major reason for global warming. Indisputably, it’s doing our environment and our planet great harm.

Deforestation causes:

  • Loss of habitat for animal and plant species. Nearly 70% of Earth’s land animals and plants live in forests and their homes are being destroyed.
  • Increased greenhouse gases, perhaps the major contributor to global warming.
  • Disruption to the water cycle, leading to drought, dryer soils, impoverished crops, and even desert landscapes.
  • Soil erosion and coastal floods.
  • Destruction of homelands for indigenous communities.

We cannot afford to ignore the consequences of deforestation. Not only are they greatly troubling, they’re accelerating, and we only have ourselves to blame. Trees are amongst the most prominent and critical organisms on Earth. For the sake of future generations, we need to find a way to restore healthy forests worldwide.

We want to play our part. That’s why we’re partnering with Eden Reforestation Projects and that’s why we pledge to plant one tree for every ‘The Organic Skin Co.’ product you purchase. It’s a chance for us to give back, to help redress the balance.

One product, one tree. That’s our promise to you and to our planet.
