2018’s memorable moments and milestones

We’re not exaggerating when we say 2018 was a year you have to see to believe. From our 5×5 Pledge to our more than 1.4 million Facebook fans, 2018 was a year of impressive numbers! It was also a year of remarkable events: new market openings, the launch of a new shipping subscription service, and the inaugural International Essential Oils Day to honor D. Gary Young.

While we could tell you about all the amazing things that happened in 2018, we’d much rather show you! Head to our blog where you’ll find an infographic featuring a recap of the year’s moments and milestones—it’ll knock your holiday socks off!

Change the world when you join our zero-waste efforts!

As stewards of the earth, we want to take care of our planet. With thousands of employees in multiple countries and millions of members, Young Living’s influence really can make a positive impact on the environment and set an example for millions more to follow.

Young Living Founder D. Gary Young said, “I can take care of my Young Living family only if I take care of Mother Nature.” A true steward of the earth, Gary deeply believed that there is an expectation for us to care for the planet and that Young Living can only truly thrive when we are doing our part.

The road to zero waste will have its challenges, but our chances for success are much greater when everyone joins our efforts to preserve the world we love. Some sobering statistics to motivate positive action:

  • It takes 500 years for average-sized plastic water bottles to fully decompose.
  • Americans make nearly 400 billion photocopies a year, which comes out to 750,000 copies every minute.

Every month we’ll send out some helpful tips to living the zero-waste lifestyle! Here are a few to get you started:

  • Recycle any aluminum cans you have. Recycling just two cans a day saves the same amount of energy it takes to power a PC for a single day.
  • Whenever possible, go paperless for documents.
  • Use reusable grocery bags instead of the plastic ones offered at the store.

Help us go green!

Global Update

Hong Kong

5 years at Young Living Hong Kong

Young Living Hong Kong turned five in 2018! With extraordinary effort from members and employees over the past half of a decade, our Hong Kong market now operates over 14 percent of the direct selling market in Hong Kong. After reaching so many people in this dynamic market, we’re excited to see what Young Living Hong Kong accomplishes with five more years of passion for sharing pure, authentic YL products!

In particular, our members love the new Experience Centre in Causeway Bay. With tons of space, a natural cafe-like vibe, a spacious, multi-functional room, and high-tech elements in our essential oil display, this impressive getaway is enjoyed by members all around Hong Kong!

Young Living Hong Kong also continues to exceed all expectations with its shipping services. Ninety-six percent of orders are delivered within two days, with an out-of-stock rate that has dramatically decreased. Due to these exemplary practices, Hong Kong became the only country besides the U.S. to use Young Living’s new YL Go shipping program. Since its launch in September, more than half of members signed up on ER took advantage of YL Go’s convenience and savings.

As our loyal members continue to thrive in their booming market and our employees push for groundbreaking services, Young Living Hong Kong will be an invaluable part of getting essential oils into every home in the world!
