What will this fund do?
We will donate to and actively participate in projects that protect, preserve and/or grow the rainforest. We will also donate to projects that protect the habitats of animals in the rainforest, such as orangutans.
Why the Rainforest?
Medik8's aim is to go #BeyondZero, which means we want to go further than being a brand that is simply sustainable. Part of this aim is to replace more of the rainforest than we use as a company in every aspect, from our printer paper to product packaging. We will also donate to projects that help us to offset > 100% of the palm oil we use.
This is a cause very close to the heart of our founder who personally witnessed the wildfires in south-east Asia in 1997. In 2018 we already replaced all plastic inserts with 100% FSC certified recycled card and this is just the start.
We are currently auditing our workplace to see what our impact is on the rainforest, more information coming very soon.
