Element Apothec was established with one goal in mind: to create a line of natural and organic, CBD-infused skincare and wellness products which combine the healing powers of nature with the ingenuity of innovation. From that one idea emerged a commitment to formulate products that are healthy for your body, inside and out; advocate for higher standards; and empower consumers via transparency and education, all while holding ourselves accountable to unparalleled standards of safety and quality. Because we all deserve better. We believe in the importance of taking care of the environment. That's why we plant a tree and restore nature with every order.
Honduras is a biodiverse nation home to hundreds of terrestrial, freshwater, and marine species of animals and plants, some found nowhere else on Earth. Unfortunately, growth of palm oil production has led to uncontrolled logging, often in protected areas.
Work in this region is done in partnership with La Tigra National Park to produce, plant, and protect forests destroyed by uncontrolled logging. Reforesting this degraded region with native tree species creates sustainable economic opportunities for the indigenous people living there.
Deforestation threatens the lives of the people and wildlife. Restoring these areas is essential to preserving the area’s watershed and biodiversity.See Map
This restoration area is located on a lowland mangrove forest along the Akalamboro Estuary surrounding the Akalamboro community in northwest Madagascar. The northern edge of this estuary is part of the Baie de Baly National Park.
Before starting the project, the mangrove forests found in this area were severely impacted by deforestation and forest degradation from charcoal production and wood collection for cooking, construction, and other purposes.
The mangrove forest is unique in that it is a deep-water canal that meets up with an extensive, freshwater river system. This makes it a vital nursery for numerous fish species, abundant Nile crocodile, and multiple bird species, including the endangered Madagascar sacred ibis.See Map
At Our Forest, our mission is to positively impact our Earth’s climate, wildlife, and biodiversity through global reforestation. We strive to make reforestation an intrinsic part of every business. Together we can grow forests and create a better future for everyone.
