M·Y·O Cosmetic Cases wants to give back to the beauty of our world by offsetting our carbon footprint.

Mindful of our carbon footprint, our cases are made in Vancouver, Canada and we are partnered with World Tree’s Carbon Offset Program.  Partnering with World Tree’s Carbon Offset Program, M·Y·O Cosmetic Cases Inc. is supporting their mission to transform the planet by providing the Empress Splendor tree as a powerful solution to the world’s carbon footprint.

M·Y·O Cosmetic Cases Inc. is committed to purchase planting (a minimum of) 1 acre of Empress Splendor trees per year.  Empress Splendor trees are the fastest growing hardwood in the world and absorb 11 times more carbon than any other tree. Every acre of planted Empress Splendor trees offsets over 1000 tons of carbon (an individual’s carbon footprint for 50 years). The amazing Empress Splendor, a sustainable lumber, (growing to maturity in only 10 years, re-grows 7 times over from it’s stump) absorbs 11 times more carbon than any other tree. Each M·Y·O Cosmetic Case sale contributes towards purchasing these amazing trees.

World Tree is planting and growing Empress Splendor trees using a network of experienced farmers to generate income and offset millions of tons of carbon in the process.

  • Fastest growing hardwood tree in the world.
  • Reaches maturity within 10 years.
  • Sequesters 11 times more carbon than any other tree.
  • Produces a light, strong hardwood.
  • Non-GMO, non-invasive.
  • Regrows from the stump after harvest.
  • Responds well to organic farmer methods.

Within just 10 years they can be harvested and sold for lumber. The profits from the sale of this valuable lumber will be shared with all the participants in the program including farmers and investors.  M·Y·O Cosmetic Cases will reinvest a portion of their profits to the World Tree’s Carbon Offset Program.
