HOW WE INVEST 1% OF OUR REVENUE
THE WUNDER FOREST - PLANTING TREES IN THE HEART OF THE WORLD
As part of the 1% of our yearly revenue, we plant trees in the Sierra Nevada, Colombia. In March 2019 and 2020, we planted 500 trees to create the start of a 'Wunder Forest' in Bunkwimake with the Ikú community in the Sierra Nevada, Colombia. 🌿Our 500+ trees are growing in an agro-forestry together with cacao trees🌳 and are being looked after by the local community who use their ancestral knowledge to nurture the land, preserving nature and ancient wisdom. This is key in the restoration and preservation of the natural ecosystem, in the heart of the world.
PLANTING MANGROVES IN SRI LANKA
As part of Sen Wellness's conservation project we are planting mangroves in Sri Lanka. These resilient trees, which take root in the mud below shallow water, provide shelter from predators for the young of many reef fish species, replenishing fisheries and supporting the livelihoods of those who depend on them. They dissipate the force of tropical storms and reduce damage to coastal communities.
Perhaps most importantly, mangroves absorb up to 50 times more carbon than other ecosystems, playing a key role in efforts to mitigate climate change.
MOTHERS IN SRI LANKA
We invest 1% of our revenue in community projects. We support AMMA through giving all of the profits from our Avocado dyed aprons and turmeric dyed pouches (our CBD oil is packed in these) to AMMA SRI LANKA.
AMMA trains and employs mothers living in the Sri Lankan highlands to turn food waste and plants into natural dyes creating sustainable textiles, ethically handmade.
The mothers AMMA employs come from the tea estates that surround their workshop. They are from low income backgrounds and are now principle contributors to the household finances. We could not be prouder of this, and see AMMA's employees becoming role models within their communities.
LAST PRISONER PROJECT
For us as a business, crafting products with CBD, it's crucial to acknowledge that cannabis has been weaponized against people of colour and contributed to the mass incarceration of POC, mainly in the USA but also worldwide. Hence why a portion of our CBD sales goes to the Last Prisoner Project. LPP is dedicated to repairing the past and continuing harms of the criminalisation of cannabis through intervention, advocacy, and awareness.
We support our community and donated a portion of our 1% budget to projects very close to the Wunder HQ.
2017: We donated a portion of our sales to Grenfell Community Centre after the terrifying fire.
2018: We donated a portion of our sales to the aftermath support for the Malibu Canyon fires, a beautiful nature reserve with a lot of wild life.
2019: We donated a portion of our 1% to Willow Primary School and Broadwaters' Children's Centre, North London - one of Britain's most deprived estates, enabling the children to enjoy nature and activities during their summer holidays.
2020: We donated a portion of our January sales to Australia's wild fires relief support and animal support.
2020: We donated a portion of our April sales to the Tea Leaf trust in support of the elderly living on tea estates in Sri Lanka, who don't have access to food due to the Corona virus.
2020: We donated a portion of our May sales to Black Life Matters UK and NAACP Legal Defense Fund.
