“Many of the changes observed in the climate are unprecedented in thousands, if not hundreds of thousands of years, and some of the changes already set in motion—such as continued sea level rise—are irreversible over hundreds to thousands of years”.
These are chilling words and form part of the opening statement of this year’s IPCC Climate Change report.
While we have been hearing about climate change for many years now, it’s credible reports like this and high profile actions, like the Duke of Cambridge’s Earthshot prize, that are finally driving the message home – Climate Change is a real thing and we are ALL responsible in doing our part to reverse the damage.
At Botanico Vida we have been committed to playing our part by purchasing our ingredients from Fairtrade organisations and not compromising to save money. We are particularly proud of how we source our Sacha Inchi, our hero ingredient in Omega Oil and Balm. Every penny spent contributes to the reforestation on the Peruvian Amazon, by donating a percentage to The Omega Project in Peru. This fantastic project supports the livelihood of Peruvian Amazonian farmers by creating thousands of jobs and also reforests thousands of hectares of rainforest annually. To help this exceptional project achieve their goal every bottle of Botánico Vida's Omega Oil contains 15% of Bioactive Sacha Inchi Oil, so every purchase of Omega Oil directly impacts the viability of the Omega Project and the reforestation of the Amazon.
