Celebrating Earth Day: Thrive Causemetics' Carbon Offset Program

Thrive Causemetics has been committed to ensuring that our actions and operations do not have negative impacts on the world we love. As of 2020, our shipping processes have been carbon neutral.

This means that for every shipment from our warehouse to your door, emission costs are thoroughly calculated. This helps us to know exactly how to neutralize our effect on the planet by actively supporting various reforestation and biodiversity efforts. To date, we have already offset 114.5 metric tons of CO2 and helped save 4.2 million trees!

We aim to create chains and systems that work for the planet which, in turn, enable us to support our greater mission of helping communities thrive.

Bigger Than Beauty™ Spotlight: My Sistah’s House

My Sistah's House + Thrive Causemetics

In honor of Black History Month, we are kicking off the first Instagram Live event of the year with our incredible Giving Partner, My Sistah’s House! Karissa Bodnar, Founder and CEO of Thrive Causemetics, will be having a fun, informal chat with Kayla Gore, Co-Founder of My Sistah’s House. Please join us to learn more about our partnership with this incredible organization, that is made possible because of YOU!

My Sistah’s House (MSH) is a nonprofit organization that fosters security for the most vulnerable of the transgender, lesbian, gay, bisexual, and queer (TLGBQ) communities in Memphis, Tennessee by providing emergency housing, advocacy, and resource assistance. MSH was founded in 2016 by two trans women of color who sought to bridge a gap in services for trans and queer people of color (TQPOC).

Founder Kayla Gore

Kayla Gore, Co-Founder of My Sistah’s House, will be a special guest featured during the Thrive Causemetics IG Live event. Kayla’s work includes fighting for housing equity for all people who are chronically homeless and advocating for the just treatment of transgender people by law enforcement. She also provides training for community-based organizations (CBO’s), educational institutions, and healthcare organizations around trans inclusivity.

My Sistah’s House has been a Thrive Causemetics Giving Partner since October 2019. Because of YOU, they have received 9,800 products valued at more than $150,000! My Sistah’s House was also a participant in our 2021 Juneteenth Donation Day campaign, when we partnered with over 20 organizations passionate about racial + social justice and advancing African-American and Black communities. With your help, we raised $115,000 cash and the funds were evenly distributed to all participating organizations.

The IG Live event will take place on the Thrive Causemetics official Instagram page on Monday, 2/7 at 3:00pm PST. Tune in to learn more about our partnership with My Sistah’s House, and the work they are doing for the TQPOC and LGBTQ+ communities!
