It’s that time of the year again where L’Occitane sets out to run a philanthropic campaign to bring that festive spirit to underserved communities.  Known for their amazing skin care & make up, fragrance, body care, and many more goodies that speak to one feeling and looking good,  the French luxury cosmetics brand is just as passionate about making a difference in the world one initiative at a time.

L’Occitane School Greening Programme

This year, L’Occitane has introduced their School Greening Programme in collaboration with Food & Trees For Africa. Through this programme, they aim to plant 300 trees nationwide, all to be handed over to 10 underserved schools on Earth Day in 2020.

Each province with  L’Occitane stores has selected the schools they would like to support, and this lovers is where you are needed in order to help support this great programme. All you have to do is visit your nearest L’Occitane store to donate a tree, or simply do it at the click of a button… click, HERE!

How it works

For as little as R50, you plege to the donate 1 leaf, the equivalent of 1/3 of a tree. Should you wish to purchase a full tree this holiday season, that would require a donation of R150.

I’m loving the fact that all contributions toward this great programme will be accounted for and detailed information on your tree will be shared. From exactly what tree has been planted, where it has been planted, updates on the health of the tree as well as a special certificate to go with it!  All of this information will be shared via the L’Occitane newsletter.

How to plant your leaf

As a token for sponsoring a tree, you will receive a special seed paper leaf to plant at home. Tested by the L’Occitane local Head Office, here are some tips when planting your leaf:

  1. Moisten the paper as well as the soil. Place the leaf a few millimetres under the soil. We recommend a small glass jar for the germination process.
  2.  Water daily but do not drown the seeds.
  3. Care needs to be taken during germination, paper must be kept moist & in a warm place with direct sun exposure.
  4. Watch your little flowers grow from paper!

I popped into L’Occitane store in Mall Of Africa and donated a tree in support of this great programme! Make sure you play your part too by either popping into your nearest L’Occitane store, or simply clicking here to purchase your tree.  

In order to say thank you for playing your part, I’m giving away a L’Occitane hamper to one lucky follower. All you have to do is answer this simple question on my Instagram post that I’ve linked above.

How many leaves equal one tree?
