With sustainability at its core, DLG has pursued zero waste. They collaborate with local universities to find uses for each element on their processeses and help small farmers increase their income.
Through the Botswana Natural Products Association, DLG supports local entrepreneurs in building the local cosmetics industry. DLG Naturals vision is: To foster a vibrant, rural middle-class and healthy lives for all. Nourishing Africa’s rich heritage of sumptuous botanical ingredients.
With the harvest spread across the country, they often store botanicals in rural villages. Choosing between building their own additional storage or renting it from their harvest villages was an opportunity they couldn’t pass up.
For one village in particular, renting a storage facility provided enough extra income to build more warehouses and new offices for the village development committee and some that they can rent, all stepping stones to a thriving local economy.
