Our Story

"The true meaning of life is to plant trees, under whose shade you do not expect to sit" - Nelson Henderson

HAZO Rolling Papers began after its founder, Kyle St. Hilaire was visiting Madagascar for a work opportunity. What he saw there changed his perspective of business, the extreme poverty and deforestation in the beautiful country was a prime example of non-ethical business practices.

Shortly after returning to Canada, HAZO was born. Our mission was simple - make people feel good. Through our one for one tree planting model, high quality sustainable products and fun, tropical branding - HAZO aims to bring a smile to each of our supporters by knowing their ethical purchase made a difference.

Our Mission

Our goal at HAZO Rolling Papers is to not only plant trees, but to assist in alleviating poverty and social issues. Through your support and our awesome planting partners, we help provide local villagers with employment while contributing to the reforestation of once thriving ecosystems.

"Madagascar is more than just an island from an animated movie. It’s a nation with over 200,000 species of plants and animals that don’t exist anywhere else in the world. But more than 90% of Madagascar’s original forests have been destroyed, displacing entire animal species and taking away the Malagasy’s ability to farm and live on the land. Entire mangrove estuaries are gone, leaving the bare earth to wash away into the sea."- Eden Reforestation Projects
