Marion, IA—Eco Lips has announced that it will donate a portion of the sales proceeds of its Eco Lips Plant Pod to environmental non-profit Trees Forever in order to plant trees in areas affected by 2020’s derecho windstorms around the Cedar Rapids area.

“We are thrilled to receive support for tree planting from Eco-lips and the sales of Plant Pods,” said Shannon Ramsay, president and CEO of Trees Forever. Its mission? To plant and care for trees and the environment by empowering people, building community, and promoting stewardship. “We are proud to be partners with such a visionary company that values carefully sourced products, all benefiting our environment.”

Introduced in February, Eco Lips’ Plant Pods are lip balm tubes made entirely from plants.
