I don’t know about you, but taking care of the planet and reducing waste has always been big on my heart and in my life. In high school I started collecting our junk mail each day and after a month had theee shopping bags(those big bags) full of JUNK mail. I would drive them to the closest recycling center(twenty minutes away, this was Atlanta GA in the late ‘90s). I made my parents sign up and pay for recycling service at our house because I just couldn’t take all the single-use waste our household would go through.
Choosing an essential oils company that was committed to responsibly sourcing and caring for the environment they harvest their product from mattered big time to me. Check out Young Living’s new partnership with the Kalipay Coconut Farm, located in the Philippines! This new partner provides Young Living with coconut oil, a key ingredient in V-6 Vegetable Oil Complex and the select essential oil blends made with fractionated coconut oil to condition and comfort skin.
The Kalipay Coconut Farm has been family owned and operated since 1963, and it has become a fixture in the community. Every year the farm donates a portion of its profits to the Lao Foundation, a non-profit organization that empowers people in the Philippines through education and values formation. The farm also sponsors the children of the local farmers to learn electromechanical technology, helping to break the cycle of poverty in its families.
The farm also utilizes green chemistry, a new and exciting discipline that helps to reduce the initial use of resources and waste. Young Living is proud to have a partner join them in the goal of zero waste. - 3 days ago
