Help Us Help Kiwi Kids and Native Trees
Proud to support People and Planet right here in New Zealand
In 2021 we celebrated 100 years of Weleda and as we embark on our next 100 year we wanted to continue the work of our founders who were following a new path for a better future. Their bold vision, to connect people with nature is at the core of our brand.
Today we are taking on the challenges of the 21st century by actively fighting for biodiversity and continuing to reduce our emissions in order to become a carbon neutral company. We grow our ingredients, both in our own gardens and with our partners, with sustainability in mind, aiming to always give more than we take.
Here in New Zealand, our biodynamic gardens are a haven for nature, but we recognise that there is much work to do to preserve biodiversity and protect our wonderful environment.
As always, at Weleda our focus starts with People. With this in mind we have been fundraising for KidsCan since 2020 supporting Kiwi kids affected by poverty. Our founder, Rudolf Steiner, was an avid supporter of children, especially their education, and social reform, so helping KidsCan is a great way for us to contribute to our New Zealand community.
We also wanted to widen support for Nature across New Zealand. Sadly, more than 4,000 native plants and animals are threatened or at risk of extinction and in need of our protection. Our unique native trees such as the kōwhai, pōhutukawa, kauri and tī kōuka (cabbage tree) are something we’re all proud of and are embedded in our identity as New Zealanders. By helping plant more of our iconic native species, we want to help protect our unique flora and fauna for the future. That is why we are also be fundraising for Trees That Count, supporting native tree planting.
At Weleda, we dare to care. Our heart beats for the health and care of people that is why this year when you buy Weleda products online or in-store, we will donate a percentage of sales to KidsCan and Trees That Count.
Together we can achieve a lot so thank you for your support,
The Team at Weleda New Zealand
