A daily priority

Since its creation, theYves Rocher brand has been working for the environment and has made protecting biodiversity an integral part of its day-to-day culture and actions.


Yves Rocher BIO crops are certified Ecocert. Since 1997, the Brand has farmed its fields using Organic Farming methods, ie without use of chemicals such as fertilizers, pesticides or herbicides. Only natural insecticides and fungicides are permitted and the crops are tended manually and mechanically, without the use of chemical weed killers.


Yves Rocher has set out strict rules to be observed by all internal teams as well as outside partners: protection of endangered species, favouring the use of cultivated plants or the renewable parts of plants, rejection of genetically modified botanic ingredients and development of the Organic Farming sector.


The Yves Rocher Jardin Botanique (Botanical Garden) of la Gacilly is an actual plant conservatory witth more than 1,100 species, local or exotic, with a notably rare collection of Artemesia that is a national example. Hotspot of the botanical knowledge in patnership with 400 other gardens in the world, it is an inexhaustible resource for the Yves Rocher Botanical Cosmetic® Research.


An official park and bird refuge certified by the Ligue Protectrice des Oiseaux (French Bird Protection League), the La Grée des Landes park, the backdrop for the Yves Rocher Eco-Hotel Spa in La Gacilly, is a real jackpot for local fauna. An abundance of living spaces planned, managed and protected so biodiversity can rule the day!


First and foremost, planting a tree also means conserving life. The birds who nest in it, the mushrooms and moss that grow on it, the insects it supplies with food. And the monkeys who swing from its branches! We are all connected to the life of a tree.

How better to understand nature than to show it?
That is the goal of this photo festival held every year in La Gacilly and open to the public – to display its love in billboard size for different cultures, and its commitment to nature.
