HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) – The globally recognized company with aromatherapy and essential oils doTERRA celebrated the grand opening of its new plant in Oahu on Saturday.
The 7,500-square-foot building in Waipahu allows doTERRA to introduce in-house business, while creating new jobs and designated space for customers to enter and pick up their orders.
Prior to that, the company had been fulfilling orders across the islands for the past four years through an independent retailer.
“It has made a lot of sense to invest in Hawaii, mainly because of the culture and the environment,” said Dr. David K. Hill, one of the founders of doTERRA.
“This is a treatment environment. It’s an environment of values and values - and it really matched who we were as a company, so it was naturally appropriate for us to come here. ”
The company has 30 fulfillment centers around the world and four in the United States.
With more than 15,000 orders shipped to Hawaii each month, the company said opening a plant in the country would reduce their emissions from shipping and help achieve their goal of becoming carbon-neutral by 2030.
The company has also collaborated with Kamehameha schools on one of their largest afforestation projects. So far, more than 230,000 trees have been planted, and more than 750,000 will be planted in the next few years.
