Today, we recognize the global theme on Earth Day 2021 “Restore our Earth” and its focus on natural processes, emerging green technologies and innovative thinking that can help to restore the world’s ecosystems.
The last 12 months have undeniably changed our Planet forever. And while many people (and economies) all over the world have had one of the toughest years yet, many of us have taken great comfort from having more time to engage and connect with nature like never before.
Mother Earth has become an unlikely beneficiary of the Pandemic, as we witness the natural world flourish as the pace of life around it was forced to slow down… Across the globe, we have seen examples of animals and their environments flourishing over the past year.
- Local air and water quality have dramatically improved in areas that implemented lockdowns.
- Emissions have dropped, and worldwide, the demand for coal and oil is lower than it has been in a long time – due in large part to the decline in demand from transport and slowdown in manufacturing.
- Reports of animals coming out to breed and play while humans are locked inside are being celebrated.
The stories of how wildlife responded to the changes human life had to make over the last 12 months, has shown us that making even small changes to what we do can make a big difference.
At KORA Organics, we believe that we all have a part to play in helping to take care of our Planet, and are commitment to providing healthy, clean products. This philosophy is woven into everything we do – from the ingredients we use, to the way we make our products.
“Having my products be certified organic is important to me, so you know exactly what you’re putting on your skin… because what you put on your skin soaks in!”
– Miranda Kerr, Founder & CEO
Our Founder & CEO, Miranda Kerr, created KORA Organics because she wanted to use products that were healthy and clean, but also delivered powerful results for her skin.

DID YOU KNOW?
Organically grown fruits and vegetables, like the ones used in all KORA Organics’ products, produce up to 60% more* antioxidants than non-organic ones.
Organic farming also has a smaller carbon footprint and provides a safer, more sustainable environment. Toxic pesticides are not used and therefore the soil is conserved, and it builds and replenishes a natural eco system for cleaner water and air.
By having our products Certified Organic we ensure that our ingredients are not only healthier for you and the environment – but also deliver more potent results.
At KORA Organics, we are also transitioning more of our packaging from plastic to glass and exploring refillable options where it’s possible. Check out our new refillable moisturizer – Turmeric Glow Moisturizer. This little beauty will help you hydrate, brighten and replenish. Allowing you to care for the environment as well as your skin.
We can all do our part to help take care of our Planet, and each other.
Happy Earth Day!
