We care deeply about the planet and creating a business that gives back to nature. That’s why we’re thrilled to share that we’re partnering with Tree-Nation to plant a tree for every £60 or over spent by you.
Trees clean our air and water, create habitats for biodiversity, contribute to our health and wellbeing, and create jobs for social impact. We’re honoured to have reforestation through Tree-Nation as an integral part of our business model.
Trees will be planted in Madagascar as part of the Eden project. Every tree offsets the equivalent to 20kg of Carbon (the equivalent to 9352 smartphones being charged).
Madagascar is home to 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 launched its Madagascar project sites in 2007 by restoring ecologically devastated mangrove estuaries in the northwest of the country. Mangrove forests are essential ecosystems whose dense roots serve as an anchor for the soil and coastline preventing erosion and creating a barrier between harsh ocean systems and land. What began as primarily mangrove restoration and reforestation in 2007 grew to include a variety of native dry deciduous species in 2012.
Eden Reforestation Projects partners include two National Park systems, which aim to reforest and revive natural habitat for endangered and endemic animal species.
