Organic Skin Care Brand Reaches Five Million Mark for Trees Planted in 19 Developing Countries
NEW YORK, March 31, 2016 /CNW/ -- Éminence Organic Skin Care, a natural and organic professional skin care brand, announced today that they have reached a milestone of five million trees planted through their Forests for the Future initiative.
Since November 2012, Éminence has partnered with award-winning global tree planting organization Trees for the Future to create their own program—Forests for the Future—in which the brand plants a tree for every retail product sold. In the four years the brand has had this initiative, Éminence has planted trees in 19 developing countries around the world including Burundi, Uganda, Ghana and Tanzania. The Forests for the Future initiative enables Éminence's tree planting partner's field teams to empower farmers to restore the land and provide food and a sustainable future for the region's inhabitants.
"We're dedicated to helping create a sustainable planet through our partnership with Trees for the Future, offering farmers in communities around the world an opportunity to maintain their own sustainable business and feed their families," says Boldijarre Koronczay, President of Éminence Organic Skin Care. "Reaching this incredible milestone of 5 million trees planted only strengthens our mission for a positive impact around the world, the environment and the fight against deforestation."
A single tree produces approximately 260 pounds of oxygen per year, while also providing a habitat for biodiversity and helping to combat climate change. To celebrate this achievement and bring awareness to why planting trees is such an important cause, Éminence has produced an inspiring 2-minute animated video: eminenceorganics.com/5milliontrees. For every share of the video on social media, Éminence will plant a tree (up to 100,000).
