BUY ONE. PLANT ONE.
AT ABYSSIAN WE BELIEVE IN GIVING BACK TO THE ENVIRONMENTS AND COMMUNITIES THAT HELP US.
Our commitment to sustainability goes beyond our ingredients. We strive to provide continual support to the environments and people who harvest and provide us with our core ingredients - plants.
We are proud to be a part of Eden Reforestation Projects, a global business community that’s inspiring positive change in our world through its philosophy of 'Everything lives where trees live'. Every time you purchase a product from Abyssian Haircare, Eden Projects will plant a Mangrove tree in the Biak Island and West Java regions of Indonesia. For more information you can visit https://edenprojects.org/indonesia/
Eden Projects hire local villagers to plant trees. This gives them a decent income so they can provide for their families again. As the reforestation effort goes on, healthy forests begin to emerge and all the negative effects of deforestation begin to disappear.
Made up of over 17,000 islands, Indonesia is one of the most biodiverse regions on the planet. These islands are home to 12% of the world’s mammals, 16% of the world’s reptiles and amphibians, 17% of the world’s birds and 25% of global fish populations. Among these 17,000 islands, there are 135 threatened mammal species, including the endangered Sumatran Tiger, Orangutans, the Javan Rhinoceros and Sumatran Elephants.
An estimated 40 million rural dwelling Indonesians rely heavily on the biodiversity of their environment for subsistence needs. Traditional fishermen rely on the wetland ecosystems all around the islands, including mangroves, coral reefs and sea grass for their livelihood. In the last 3 decades, Indonesia has lost over 40% of its mangrove forests, affecting not only the environment and the species that rely on them but also the communities that depend on this ecosystem for survival.
