For over 60 years, Glyco Lemon has been a trusted brand in the homes of thousands of South African families. Their comprehensive range of shampoos and conditioners consists of scents and ingredients South Africans know and love. With their effective formulas, beautiful fragrances and affordable prices, it’s no surprise that this much-loved hair care brand has stood the test of time.
Proudly and authentically South African, Glyco Lemon believes in driving positive change by uplifting local communities, which is why they’ve partnered with Soil For Life for their Back to Your Roots campaign.
Soil For Life is an NGO that provides training and support to individuals who want to grow food at home. Their passionate gardeners are taught how to sustain their gardens with little or no money, and their teachings focus on the importance of building healthy, fertile soil that will yield the best quality food. They work closely with schools and other establishments to facilitate community food growing projects and place a lot of emphasis on promoting community networks between gardeners. Not only does this provide opportunities for selling and bartering produce, but it also creates support systems within the communities.
Glyco Lemon’s Back to Your Roots project began in Cape Town, where, with the help of Soil For Life, they collaborated with various local schools to empower students and their families to grow their own vegetables. Students, teachers, and parents were invited to participate in educational workshops, learning about home gardening, sustainability, and the importance of fresh produce.
Over time, these schools began to flourish, providing fresh, nutritious vegetables for the students and their families, and instilling a sense of pride in the school community.
But this wasn’t a once-off project. Glyco Lemon’s commitment to giving back was the driving force behind the Back to Your Roots campaign. The campaign aims to continually fund this initiative and expand their reach even further, to benefit more families and communities.
Today, the Back to Your Roots programme is more than just a campaign; it’s a thriving community effort promoting sustainability. With the help of these school gardens, families are continuously reminded of the fundamental connection between nature and health.
Every time you purchase a Glyco Lemon shampoo or conditioner, you contribute to this life-changing program, as Glyco Lemon donates a percentage of all sales to Soil For Life.
Why has Glyco Lemon been a trusted South African favourite since 1957? Because the products work hard without breaking the bank. All Glyco Lemon shampoos and conditioners are pH-balanced and suitable for everyday use.
