Clarins and the Malibu Foundation Partner Together to Replant Paramount Ranch One Tree at a Time
3,160 resilient native trees and shrubs were planted, and over 50,000 seeds were dispersed with the help of 700+ volunteers and workers.
Clarins and the Malibu Foundation hosted Replant Love, a community event on October 12, 2019, along with partners: Just Water, Mountains Restoration Trust, Spunt Co., Coolhaus, Sabor a Malibu, and Le Café de la Plage. 700+ volunteers and workers planted 3,160 resilient native trees and shrubs, and dispersed over 50,000 seeds at Paramount Ranch, helping to restore the landscape after 88% of the Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area (SMMNRA) was destroyed by the Woolsey Fire in 2018. This effort, the largest planting day on record for the SMMNRA, will help to reduce our carbon footprint, restore native vegetation to Malibu's mountain range, and protect from future wildfires.
Young filmmaker, and Malibu native, Paris Brosnan, partnered again with Clarins to document the community event in a short film. Paris followed the volunteers all day to capture their passion and commitment to the mission. The film also includes live performances by local musicians, which kept the energy up all day, such as Brandon Jenner, Raspberry Blonde, Trinity Rose and Echosmith. DJ sets include Fai, DJ Lola and Them Jeans. This community event brought out many with the same goal, to help heal the SMMNRA through planting. Guests included Jaime King, Dylan Brosnan, Paris Brosnan, Echosmith, Brandon Thomas Lee, Brandon Jenner, Linda Thompson, Fai Khadra, Damon Baker, Rory Kennedy, Benji Patterson and more.
