The Friendly Year 2023

Supporting the Sea Turtles

Since we started out in 1999, it has been in our inner core that animals should not be part of human vanity. Therefore, all our hair care products are 100% vegan and animal friendly. However, our cause doesn’t stop at our products. It is also important for us to contribute in other ways for a friendlier world.

World Vegan Day on November 1st, 2022, marks Maria Nila’s sixth year launching our charity initiative The Friendly Year. This means that we choose a specific cause or endangered animal that will actively lead our charity work and friendly initiatives for the next 365 days.

Supporting the Sea Turtles

With water being one of the most important components in the haircare business, for this Friendly Year, we have chosen to support one of the oldest animals living in it - The Sea Turtle. For over 150 million years, the oceans around the world have been the home of these majestic creatures.

Together with our long-time partner, the trusted wildlife charity organization The Perfect World Foundation, we will contribute to  Cairns Turtle Rehabilitation center.

Cairns Turtle Rehabilitation Center

Cairns Turtle Rehabilitation Center is a non-profit organization in Australia supporting injured Sea Turtles. During this year we will particularly follow two baby Green Turtles, Dancer and Prancer, who were rescued and brought to the centre when they were fooled by outdoor lighting and ended up in a swimming pool, instead of the ocean, shortly after they were hatched.

You can read more about the project and what you can do to support the sea turtles here.
