Gigi's Eco Collection is about two things: enjoying sustainable beauty and saving the environment. So, how do we achieve this?
Our products are made with natural, vegan ingredients and powerful botanicals in clean, cruelty free formulas that are encased in certified responsibly sourced, refillable packaging. These standards ensure that your daily clean and green makeup routine does not harm your skin or our environment.
But Gigi's Eco Collection doesn't just want to prevent further environmental degradation from occurring in the future, we also want to assist in the fight to recover the degradation that already exists.
Every time you purchase your sustainable beauty products from us, you are planting one tree in the ground. This is all thanks to Gigi's Eco Collection's partnership with One Tree Planted.
One Tree Planted is an incredible non-profit organisation that is dedicated to achieving global reforestation. Their projects span across the globe in partnership with
local communities and environmental experts to help restore forests in order to strengthen nature's resilience, improve the health and wellbeing of humanity, and support the abundance and diversity of wildlife.
Why are trees so important?
Trees not only help the fight to combat climate change by sinking carbon emissions into the ground, they also help clean the air we breathe, filter the water we drink, provide habitat for over 80% of the world's terrestrial biodiversity and have indispensable cultural heritage values for local communities all around the world.
Forests cover 30% of the Earth’s surface, providing jobs for over 1.6 billion people and key ingredients in 25% of the world's medicines. Unfortunately, 13 million hectares of forests are lost every year, disproportionately affecting local communities in developing countries.
So it is no wonder that the United Nations lists global reforestation as part of Goal 15 of the Sustainable Development Goals of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
Female Empowerment in Rwanda
Protecting the Orca in the Pacific Northwest
Restoring the Peruvian Amazon
One Tree Planted worked with women, students and farmers in Rwanda to plant trees for the sustainable cultivation of fruit and coffee.
The source of food and income generated from these trees provided these communities with better access to healthcare, education and quality nutrition.
The endangered Southern Resident Orca is on the brink of extinction. There are only 73 whales left in the Pacific Northwest of North America.
One Tree Planted is repairing critical watersheds and planting one million trees in order to recover the salmon population which accounts for 80% of the Orca's caloric intake.
Peru is the 6th most biodiverse country in the world. Unfortunately, agribusinesses planted unsustainable crops and left the land degraded in The Amazon in Peru.
One Tree Planted worked with farmers and conservationists to plant cacao trees and companion plants that restored the land and livelihoods.
