2012 marks our five year anniversary of buying paper from Nepal for our gift sets - which has made a huge difference to families there. With income from papermaking, they can buy food and clothing, repair their homes, send their children to school and save for the future. Protecting forestlands also fights climate change. This is a gift for all of us.

Congratulations to Himalayan Bio Trade (HBTL), whose beautiful Lokta bark paper products are featured in Aveda's holiday line along with the unique story of the people who manage and protect the high altitude Himalayan forests. Aveda’s stores worldwide are featuring EWV’s Nepal project with beautiful store displays and a video that relates how sustainable trade enriches the men, women, and children of Nepal, while conserving important habitat and cultural traditions. You can view the Aveda video on the wonderful Nepal work and support Himalayan Bio Trade in their wildlife conservation and community development efforts by purchasing these beautiful products. The Nepal project and the producer owned Himalayan Bio Trade Company have been supported by USAID through a public-private alliance and the Global Conservation Program (GCP).
