In honor of Earth Day, I thought it fitting to share a major reason why I purchase and use dōTERRA essential oils and products in my business. Ethics are important to me, which includes respecting and honoring other people and our planet. I like that dōTERRA feels the same way:
"Cō-Impact Sourcing is an initiative that seeks to develop long-term, mutually beneficial supplier partnerships while creating sustainable jobs and providing reliable income in underdeveloped areas. dōTERRA is committed to the ethical treatment of its suppliers by providing on-time payments at fair prices. Growers and harvesters are encouraged to form cooperative groups to share collective benefits and bargaining power while improving skills and capacity."
There are many examples, Douglas Fir essential oil is one. dōTERRA's sourcing of this oil from New Zealand is helping to alleviate the environmental impacts this species (invasive in New Zealand) has had on the native plants there. In case you're curious about this oil's properties, Douglas Fir essential oil is used for it's energizing and calming properties.
Happy Earth Day to Everyone!
