The story of L'OCCITANE and the women shea butter producers of Burkina Faso began in the 1980s. Since then, we've built up a joint development partnership and a close, supportive relationship. There were about a dozen women at first. Now there are over 10,000! And since 2009, our shea butter supply chain has been 100% Fair Trade (Fair Trade certified according to the Fair for Life standard available at www.fairforlife.org).
By 2050, there could be more plastic than fish in the ocean.
50% of the plastic the world uses is used just once, then thrown away.
Over the last 10 years, humans have produced more plastic than during the whole of the last century.
BURKINA FASO IS ONE OF THE POOREST COUNTRIES IN THE WORLD.
By supporting and empowering Burkinabe women, we can help lift them out of poverty.
