Giving Back

Early Days

Since the early days of Erbaviva, we have purchased our unique cotton canvas, handcrafted packaging through Sop Moei Arts.

Sop Moei Arts is a non-profit organization that has been working with thePwo Karen Hill Tribein Northern Thailand for the last 30 years. They collaborate with local villagers to create specialty items utilizing their expertise in weaving and basket making. Purchases made through Sop Moei provides sustainable income for the villagers, helps the tribe run a mobile children’s clinic, and works with the community to transition away from the region’s traditional “slash and burn” agricultural practices to creating permanent, sustainable farms.

To create our products, we combine these meticulously derived botanical extracts, essential oils, and living herbs with cold-pressed organic butters, oils, and waxes. This fusion of organic ingredients ensures that our products are rich in nutrients, antioxidants, and beneficial compounds that nourish and revitalize the skin.

Under her initiative we have forged a lasting relationship with BlinkNow Foundation, which supports the Kopila Valley Children’s Home and Primary School in Surkhet, Nepal. Founded by Maggie Doyne at the age of 19, BlinkNow’s mission is to change the world by empowering Nepali youth by way of quality education, a safe environment and inspiring others. Since the opening of the Children’s Home in 2008, BlinkNow’s philanthropic efforts in Nepal have grown to encompass the Kopila Valley School, a health clinic and women’s center.

Through its partnership with Erbaviva, BlinkNow has received financial assistance to implement sustainable projects at the Children’s Home, including the purchase of a cow, biodynamic farming, art therapy and counseling services.
