Celebrating YOUR impact last year with Freyja Goods!

A big new year THANK YOU to all Freyja Goods Supporters and Customers!

SUCCESSFUL LAUNCH

2023 was our first year - we successfully launched our Freyja Goods Project in November and in just two months, with your help and purchases through November and December, we planted 8 trees (5 of which were for monarch butterfly habitats) and we made 7 new loans to women entrepreneurs. We are so grateful to all of you for joining us on this exciting journey as a company and for making our first two months matter!

In just two months, our customers planted 8 trees! 3 of the trees planted were made possible through direct donations from our customers! Each time you checkout you have the option to plant a tree through our partner - One Tree Planted. They are working globally to restore ecosystems and partner with local communities to protect the environment. You can learn more about them by clicking here.

5 of the trees that we planted were a donation made by Freyja Goods on behalf of our customers and were part of the Monarch Butterfly Restoration Project which is working in Michoacan Mexico to convert farmland and restore forests to improve the butterfly migration corridor, plant native species, and educate local communities to protect the habitat.
