Healthy oceans are crucial to our planet’s overall health. 90% of all carbon in the global carbon cycle is stored in the ocean. This is where it should be sequestered to reverse climate change.

Mangrove trees and blue carbon.

Mangrove forests (also known as “blue forests”) are major blue carbon systems, storing considerable amounts of carbon in marine sediments and becoming important climate change regulators. Oceans cover 70% of the planet, making ocean ecosystem restoration the greatest in the blue carbon development. One of the main concerns with blue carbon is that the rate of loss of these critical marine ecosystems is much higher than any other ecosystem on the planet, even compared to rainforests. Current estimates suggest a loss of 2–7% per year, which is not only lost carbon sequestration but also lost habitat that is important for managing climate, coastal protection, and health.*

Mangrove trees and blue carbon.

Mangrove forests (also known as “blue forests”) are major blue carbon systems, storing considerable amounts of carbon in marine sediments and becoming important climate change regulators. Oceans cover 70% of the planet, making ocean ecosystem restoration the greatest in the blue carbon development.

Mangroves forests absorb between

5-10

times more CO2 out of the atmosphere per hectar than tropical rainforest.

Mangrove forests “suck” (aka sequester) 5–10 times more CO2 from the atmosphere per hectare than tropical rainforests. Much of that carbon is stored in the soil and sediment that make up a mangrove ecosystem, which serves as critical nursery grounds for fish and shellfish and increases local marine productivity. Every 10 mangrove trees have the potential to sequester more than three metric tons of carbon dioxide over the trees’ 25-year life.

Thanks to you, we have planted

500

mangrove trees in the Biak Region of West Papua in Indonesia.

See how every

10

mangrove trees planted helps the local community:

Creates approximately a half-day of living-wage employment for local community members, helping to support 55 families. Provides resources for local education. Protects local villages from storm surges and sea-level rise.

What is microplastic in skincare products?

Microplastics are fragments of any type of plastic less than five mm (0.20 in) in length*. They enter the sewage system through our shower drain. They are so small that they slip through the filters of water treatment plants and end up in rivers, seas, and oceans. Marine animals ingest microplastics; they also end up on our plates through our food chains.

9out of 10

peronal care products contain microplastic.

Microbeads are added to many cosmetics and personal care products—for example, soaps, creams, sunscreen, facial scrubs, serums, toothpaste, and many other items. They are used as stabilizers, thickeners, gelling agents, bulking agents, opacifying agents, emulsifiers, and exfoliators. Often, their primary function is to make our skin look and feel smoother.

100%

of hyd.’s skincare formulas are free of microbeads.

Formulating without microplastic is more challenging and expensive. By choosing skincare products free from microbeads, you are helping reduce plastic pollution in rivers, seas, and oceans.
