Erik Preuss
Communications Intern
Weleda North America

Erik PreussI just recently began my internship at Weleda. I realized right from the start that it was the perfect environment for me to learn in. While I had never previously used any of Weleda’s products—I was too busy complaining about the Mets on my sports blog to notice my hands were in need of moisturizer—, I firmly believed in the company’s values and sustainable practices. My parents raised me with the belief that the environment must be protected at all costs. They would frequently take me shopping at Whole Foods, because in their minds, eating organic was not only healthier for themselves but helped the environment as well. I have wholeheartedly embraced my parents’ ideas about organic products and the importance of protecting the environment, and I have tried to live my life in the same manner. When the chance to intern in Communications at Weleda presented itself to me, I jumped at the opportunity. I was ecstatic to be offered an internship in the field that I hope will become my profession.

I look forward to learning more about Weleda’s history and natural products over the course of my internship. I am greatly looking forward to gaining more knowledge about communications, how to live a more natural life, and whether or not the Weleda After Shave Balm can cure my razor burn in the morning. Stay tuned to find out!
