Each one of us feels a connection to Mother Earth. While it may seem that one person cannot make an impact on our planet's overwhelming environmental challenges. When we stand together change and healing is possible. Life by U strongly believes in responsible planet stewardship, reducing our carbon footprint and providing environmentally friendly products to our customers. We also want to take our commitment a step further and give back a portion of our profits and our resources to two charities we believe are making great strives in improving our planet.
Life by U participates in the Adopt and Acre Program sponsored by The Nature Conservancy to help protect some of America's most beautiful and precious habitats. Since the program began in 1991 over 600,000 acres are being protected under the Conservancy. Of course there is always much more to do. Life by U will announce annually which lands we adopted that year and your purchases will help support this effort.
Life by U is a corporate member of United Plant Savers who's mission is to protect native medicinal plants of the United States and Canada and their native habitat. These actions are meant to ensure an abundant renewable supply of medicinal plants for future generations. The work of United Plant Savers involves research, education and conservation of native medicinal plants and their habitats. Many plants on the "At Risk" list for extinction are very familiar plants found in our everyday herbal medicine and skin care products. Some of them you may recognize: Echinacea, Goldenseal, American Ginseng, Eyebright, and Wild Yam to name a few.
