Sustainably sourced eucalyptus
Did you know experts warn that Koalas might become extinct in the next 30 years? One of the main threats for our furry friends is the loss of their habitats: Eucalyptus forests. Land clearings, excessive farming and wildfires have already reduced Koalas’ natural habitat and food supply by over 80%, leaving them more vulnerable than ever.
PROTECTING KOALA HABITATS
While Eucalyptus leaves and essential oil provide many health benefits to people, at Babo Botanicals we do not believe in using this natural resource at the detriment of the wildlife that depends on it. We proudly source our Eucalyptus essential oil from a woman-owned enterprise in Australia whose driving force is to create a safe-haven for endangered Koalas.
Our inspiring partner farmers have dedicated 12 acres of their land to building a Koala sanctuary as part of their work to protect Australian wildlife. Built at the rear of the farm near a lagoon which is a main water supply for the Koalas, this sanctuary is designed to provide a safe rest stop for the furry marsupials traveling in the region, keeping them safe from the busy roads. The sanctuary offers an abundant food source for Koalas, planted with hundreds of Eucalyptus trees specifically selected for their picky diet - they only feed on a fraction of Eucalyptus tree species out of the 800 that exist!
Like us, our partners are B-corp certified. They are also EcoVadis Platinum rated, ranking in the top 1% of the 75,000 global sustainable businesses audited annually. Their processes are validated by a trusted third party across environmental, social and ethical performance.
Our Eucalyptus Remedy Collection is enriched with sustainably sourced Eucalyptus grown by these environmentally-focused farmers. Sourcing this decongesting, purifying and invigorating natural ingredient from a family-owned farm committed to preserving natural ecosystems makes this Eucalyptus even more valuable to us.
At Babo Botanicals, we are committed to sustainably sourcing ingredients that are not only good for people but also for the local ecosystem and the farmers who grow and harvest them with love and care.
