Every year at opesus, we make a donation on behalf of our customers instead of sending them opesus-branded Christmas gifts. Last year we donated to the Himalayan Stove Project, a philanthropic organization that is dedicated to improving the quality of life for residents of the Himalayan region of Nepal. This year we look to the other side of the world – the lungs of our planet Earth – the Amazonas.
