Climate positivity with Ecologi
We’re thrilled to announce that we’re now partnering with Ecologi to improve our sustainability efforts and to take positive action towards helping to save the planet.
One purchase = one tree planted
From today, every time you place an order with us, we fund the planting of a tree through the environmental organisation, Ecologi. It doesn’t matter if it’s a £4 bar of chocolate or an annual subscription, every sale counts. You can follow our progress here.
Who are Ecologi?
Ecologi is an environmental organisation committed to reversing climate change. They fund carbon offsetting projects and tree planting around the world. Their mission is to reduce 50% of global CO2 emissions by 2040 and responsibly plant billions of trees every year.
Ecologi believe that, by working with individuals and businesses, they can create a big impact with just a little effort from lots of people.
Ecologi’s first major tree planting project was in Madagascar, where 3 million mangrove trees have been planted across over 3000 acres. This project is now in the maintenance phase and Ecologi have expanded their efforts to wider areas of Madagascar, along with a new project to plant 5 million trees in Mozambique and another to rebuild tropical rainforest in Nicaragua.
How can you help?
Firstly, shop with us! Every time you buy something from us, however large or small, we fund the planting of a tree on your behalf.
If you’d like to do more, head to Ecologi and find out how you can plant more trees for less than £5 a month.
What else are we doing to improve our sustainability?
As much as Moi-Même is all about discovering new products and treating ourselves to beautiful gifts, we’re very much aware of the impact that over-consumption can have on our planet. Here are a few of the actions we’re taking to do our bit and some ideas of how you can help:
- Re-using packaging: whenever we receive stock from our partner brands we save as much of their packaging as possible (bubble wrap, air bags etc.) and re-use this when we send out your orders.
- Recycling: whatever we can’t re-use, we recycle. Even when the clock is against us and it’s tempting to throw it all in together, we always separate our waste correctly and take this to our local recycling centre.
- Working with sustainable brands: we like to work with brands that are on our wavelength, which is why you’ll find products that are innovative and committed when it comes to the environment in your boxes and in our shop. The likes of Dock & Bay, Coco Pzazz, Lola’s Apothecary, Love Cocoa and so many more are doing great things to create positive climate action. We only ever work with beauty brands that are cruelty-free (and usually vegan), source candles that are non-toxic and love to find your gifts from businesses close to home.
- Re-use your boxes: whenever you receive your Monthly or Luxe subscription from us, instead of collapsing your gift box and adding it to the recycling, try using it for storage. We hear from so many of you using them for make up storage, decorating them to make Christmas gift boxes, junk modelling with children… endless possibilities!
These are just a few of the things we do and you can do too. Please do email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if there’s anything else you’d like to suggest!
