"'MY MISSION IS TO ALIGN MY WORK WITH OTHERS WHO SHARE THE SAME VISION FOR A BEAUTY INDUSTRY FREE FROM ANIMAL CRUELTY, THE EXPLOITATION OF WOMEN WHILE AT THE SAME TIME CARING FOR OUR PLANET"
Giving Back Through Planting Trees
Having lived through Northern California's fire season and seeing first hand the devastation these fires have had on our ecological system, our animals and people's welfare I feel very passionate about giving back to rebuild our forests.
We have partnered with One Tree Planted - a 501(c)(3) nonprofit dedicated to global reforestation. They plant trees to restore nature and biodiversity. They also raise awareness about the importance of trees and help educate people to do something positive for the environment. Through ONE TREE PLANTED we plant one tree for every transaction on maryallan.com.
Giving Back Through Education
One of the areas of the beauty industry that is often overlooked is the minority workers, many of them Women behind some of the most precious ingredients that we have all come to love and cherish. Ingredients such as Shea Butter, Marula Oil and Argan Oil are often produced by workers who are not represented within a cooperative. Purchasing through cooperatives helps these developing regions also profit from the purchase of their oils and further helps develop their communities.
I realize that these minority workers mainly Women need to educate the future Women of their communities. This year I have made a donation to two charities that focus on improving the lives of the most vulnerable girls and young Women through the power of education. Both Education For All Morocco and CAMFED revolutionize how girls’ education is delivered. These organizations have created education models that radically improves girls’ prospects of becoming independent, influential Women.
