This Christmas, the Classic Advent Calendar takes the form of a book, telling one of the true stories about the almond tree. Did you know? In the 1950’s, almond trees completely disappeared from the Provence landscape. In 2000, L’OCCITANE, with the help of their producers, decided to reintroduce almond trees back onto the hills of Provence. Today, the Provence landscape is full of almond trees.

Tristan Lecomte founded PUR Projet in 2008 with the goal to fight climate change and deforestation. Ecologically aware and caring about the human condition, he suggested that producers plant trees to restore land fertility, to bring back the lost biodiversity and to join the fight against global warming that harshly a ects them through the creation of carbon sinks. Today PUR Projet sources local partners to create community projects across the world.

With Biodiversity at the core of L’OCCITANE’s commitments we have partnered with PUR Projet globally. With 70% of land in the UK being used for farming purposes our local partner is the Woodland Trust. They work with farmers to help conserve their land and become agroforestry ambassadors. Their aim is to preserve soil, water resources and improve animal welfare. It’s now more than ever that we need to act. With PUR Projet by our side we aim to plant trees and continue to enjoy our beautiful natural surroundings for years to come.

ALMOND GIFT SET
£49

Treat someone special to the Almond Gift and £10 from each sale will go directly to the Woodland Trust (in association with PUR Projet) to replant native trees across the UK. Including all of the most loved products from the Almond Collection, this gift is the gift that gives back to nature this Christmas.

L’Occitane chose the Almond Collection as the gift that donates to the PUR Projet because the almond tree was all but eradicated from the Provence landscape due to the popularity of olives in the region. L’OCCITANE worked with its producers to replenish the almond trees in the region and today they thrive. The almond tree is at the heart of L’OCCITANE and provides a true and inspirational story of how they can help nature when all seems lost.

L’OCCITANE COMMITMENTS

L’OCCITANE was born in 1976, when its founder, Olivier Baussan, began distilling essential oils and selling them in his much-loved land of Provence. Built on strong principles and true stories, the brand has grown (a lot!), but its philosophy has always remained the same. Nature matters. People matter. That is why L’OCCITANE has clear commitments, focused on protecting our precious planet and treating people with respect.

If we don’t do anything, the oceans will contain more plastic than fish in 2050.

If we don’t do anything, over 12,000 plant species could disappear from our planet in the coming years.

If we don’t do anything, more than 3.7 million women could still live in a state of poverty in Burkina Faso.

If we don’t do anything, the number of visually impaired people will triple by 2050.

Did you know? Only 9% of the world’s plastic is recycled. 12% is burned and the remaining 79% ends up in either landfill or in our precious environment. We’ve partnered with TerraCycle® to provide a collection and recycling program for our customers to be able to simply recycle their empties at all of our UK L’OCCITANE boutiques. TerraCycle® is able to turn old beauty packaging into new product packaging, thus avoiding landfill or incineration.

By 2025, our goal is to have 100% of our bottles made from 100% recycled plastic.
We have already achieved our goal of 100% of our stores offering a recycling service.

In return for helping us to save the planet, you will be getting a reward too. Every time you bring back your empty products from L’OCCITANE or any other beauty brand, you will receive 10% o a full sized product.
