Giving Back: #GiveBack

At Temple Lifestyle, giving back is incredibly important to us.  As the proud owners of Thirsty Buddha coconut water and Hungry Buddha coconut chips, we never take for granted how lucky we are to do what we do in providing our consumers with the best coconut products. With that understanding, we are so thankful to the planet for allowing us to harvest the fruits of its labour in order for us to get our products from the tree to your nearest retailer.

We have committed to supporting various charitable organizations that are close to our hearts and we hope to inspire others to do the same. #GiveBack

Giving back during the holidays – the environment and its well being are very important to us. Instead of printing and mailing out cards and gifts during the holiday season, we send e-cards and make sizeable toy donations to the Montreal Children’s Hospital or Sun Youth Foundation.

Trees-for-the-Future

Trees for the Future

(Information provided by Trees for Future)

In the early 1970s, Dave and Grace Deppner served as volunteers in the Philippines, where they witnessed the human tragedy brought on by illegal logging and unsustainable land management systems. Working with community leaders in nearby villages, the Deppners found a way to offer hope. They revitalized degraded lands by providing farmers with tree seed, technical training, and on-site planning assistance. People responded enthusiastically, joining in to save their homes and way of life.

Over the years TREES has assisted thousands of communities in planting millions of trees in 19 countries including Ghana, which have restored life to land that was previously degraded or abandoned. For more information visit treesforthefuture.org
