ONE TREE PLANTED
At Lost in Samsara we believe we can make a positive impact and that our fair trade gifts can benefit not just the artisans and communities that make them but also the environment.
We believe our duty is to create collections that use recycled materials when possible and that are long lasting so not to impact further our fragile eco-system.
We also believe our products can do more and that is why we support an amazing environmental project.
We are empowering you to make Lost in Samsara orders less impactful on the planet! So now you’ll know when a Lost in Samsara fair trade gift arrives at your door, you’ll get something you love and you’ll be proud of the fact that you’re taking a small step towards making a big change in the world.
You can support with us a water purification project in Laos by just checking the "Make my order carbon neutral" box at checkout and giving a small contribution.
In Laos, a study found that 86.3% of people had e. coli in their household drinking water, indicating a risk of diarrhea and other waterborne diseases. Although a significant portion of the population treats water by boiling using wood or charcoal to make it safe for drinking, many families cannot afford the time to gather firewood or purchase charcoal and are forced to continue drinking unsafe water. This project helps provide ceramic water purifiers that remove microorganisms from water by gravity filtration through porous ceramics, with a typical flow rate of up to 55 liters per day.
