Foundation Fungi

 We can do far more together than we can alone. Saving our planet takes more than one person, or one organisation, which is why we are also partnering up with the team at Foundation Fungi.

The Fungi Foundation works for the Fungi, their habitats and the people who depend on them.

They are carbon reservoirs of nature, thanks to their mutualistic relationship with trees, they receive carbon from them through the roots, which helps them grow. Thus, carbon is kept in the mycelium (underground) and not in the atmosphere.

Through decomposition they recycle all organic matter on the planet! There are fungi that can even decompose plastic and petrochemicals. They are excellent remediators, capable of cleaning up toxic waste such as oil or converting radiation into chemical energy for growth. There are fungi that remove copper, zinc, iron, cadmium, lead and nickel from aqueous solutions through absorption.

At Herbar we donate 1% of each Face Oil to FF so fungi can be recognized as the interconnectors of nature.
