Co-Impact Sourcing Trips are returning in 2023! The long-awaited reunion with global sourcing partners and their communities is nearly within reach. doTERRA leaders will again experience sourcing firsthand, learning from our Sourcing team and the distillers, farmers, and harvesters with whom we work and giving back in doTERRA Healing Hands® social impact projects.
Along with supplying the highest-quality essential oils, doTERRA is committed to making a positive difference in the lives of the farmers, harvesters, and distillers who contribute to our production. We source our essential oils from over 40 countries—more than half of which are considered developing countries. To ensure small-scale farmers and harvesters in disadvantaged areas are treated ethically, doTERRA created Co-Impact Sourcing initiatives.
Co-Impact Sourcing develops long-term, mutually beneficial supplier partnerships and sustainable jobs with reliable income in underdeveloped areas. doTERRA is committed to ethically treating its suppliers by providing on-time payments at fair prices. Growers and harvesters are encouraged to form cooperative groups to share collective benefits and bargaining power, while also improving skills and capacity.
The doTERRA Healing Hands Foundation also funds and provides resources for community-based, social-impact projects to improve lives in the larger communities where essential oils are sourced.
We’re excited for the upcoming 2023 trips:
|March 26–April 1, 2023||Kenya||US/Canada||Trip 2023|
|November 5–11, 2023||Kenya||US/Canada/Latin America||Trip 2023|
The Maasai Mara ecosystem in Kenya and Tanzania is often referred to as the Eighth Wonder of the World. It’s home to millions of animals that migrate through the savannah grasslands. The stunning Maasai Mara has captured the hearts of countless tourists.
However, the changing climate, lifestyles, and rapidly growing populations are making the future of this incredible place—and the livelihoods of the people who live there—uncertain.
Together with our sourcing partner, Fairoils, doTERRA has a unique opportunity to help maintain the integrity of the northernmost point of the Maasai Mara through Co-Impact Sourcing.
