PLANT A TREE
Our team wants to make sure we’re doing our bit to help the environment by allowing our customers to plant a tree for every order purchased with the help of Tree-Nation. Hence by planting trees at our chosen conservation projects, we can give our support to an issue that we deeply care about. Climate change is a major problem affecting our environment and is caused by many factors including deforestation. Planting trees will not only offset C02 emissions but reduce the impact of deforestation which is responsible for approximately 17% of climate change and a great factor depriving locals of essential resources.
Why should we plant trees?
Trees are an essential part of our environment. They produce the oxygen that humans rely on to respire and store carbon from the atmosphere which essentially helps combat climate change. A vast majority of wildlife depends on trees for food and shelter and trees play a huge role in preventing flooding or erosion and improves the condition of soils so that we can harvest crops – the list goes on!
“Forests support approximately 80% of the world’s terrestrial biodiversity.”
What Is Tree-Nation?

The organisation’s sole mission is to reforest the world to help fight climate change, however their mission has also changed the lives of many local communities, restored deprived forests, helped preserve biodiversity, and create jobs.
