Supporting Our Community & World is Our Passion!
exhālō LOVES to support both positive community & world-wide initiatives along with a few selected local beauty & wellness brands that meet our high standards.
Eminence Organic Skincare
Part of the reason we chose to partner with this amazing skincare company, aside from their incredible organic products, is their ongoing partnership with award-winning global tree-planting organization Trees for the Future.
Did you know that 1 tree is planted for every Eminence Organic Skincare product we sell? YOUR purchase is making a difference!
Together, we are planting trees in developing countries throughout the world including Burundi, Uganda, Ghana, and Tanzania. In Africa, agroforestry provides families with the education and tools to create their own tree nurseries. The profits allow them to support their basic needs, while also benefiting the environment and fighting deforestation. Over 13 million trees have been planted so far!
