Here at Selene, we’re on a mission to help build the kind of world we want to live in. At the end of the day, it all starts and stops with us as individuals.T ogether, we can make a difference. A recent study found that about 94% of people believe that companies should help address critical social issues. We couldn’t agree more. Each quarter, Selene donates a portion of sales to a different social good organization.
Here are the three pillars of social impact that Selene is committed to:
Francesca, founder and CEO, says, “I want to be able to do whatever I possibly can to limit my carbon footprint. I know I’m only one person, but I believe that we can all individually make a difference.”
All of our products are grown organically, without using pesticides or harmful chemicals. Because, who needs those?? Definitely not us. We also are committed to using recyclable containers for all of our products.
Another part of our commitment to the environment is by using regenerative farming. The farms we collaborate with use modern (earth-loving) technology to “regenerate” the soil, putting nutrients back into the ground, cleaning the air, and improving the impact that we have on the earth.
“We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.” – Albert Einstein.
At Selene, we believe in basic human rights for everyone. Period. We want to help make a difference. It's pretty clear that the fight for social justice is nowhere near finished. Anti-racism and anti-sexism work is taxing and exhausting, which is why it's important for activists to practice consistent self-care.
Our vision is to empower women (of all colors and identities) to take control of their health, and to help them feel good in their own skin.
A study by the National Institute of Mental Health (NAMI) found that about one in five women experience a common mental disorder (like anxiety or depression), compared with one in eight men. Not only that, but BIPOC women tend to face additional challenges to their mental health, and are at greater risk of experiencing a mental disorder.
Sure, these numbers are disheartening, but thankfully, over the past few years, there has been a new wave of women taking control of their mental health and working hard to #endthestigma associated with therapy and seeking treatment.
“I want this to be a community where women can feel safe and free and accepted to be who they are, not who society/parents/whomever wants them to be. You are not broken. There is nothing wrong with you. We are here to empower you to be the best version of yourself, mind & body.” — Francesca, CEO and Founder
Mental Health Resources
As more and more women are realizing the importance of reaching out and seeking help, we wanted to show up by providing support and assistance to those in need. Each quarter, we’re partnering with a different organization that is in alignment with our core values and who puts women’s mental health first.
