Planting trees has a huge number of benefits, including:
- Restoring animals’ habitats, which, in turn helps increase biodiversity by giving endemic species the chance to thrive
- Removing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere by putting it back into the plants and soil, and therefore helping to reduce global warming
- Cleaning the air by removing pollutant gases such as nitrogen oxides, ammonia, sulphur dioxide and ozone by trapping these gases in their leaves and bark
- Restoring local ecosystems that have been destroyed by deforestation or other external factors
- Reducing the impact of flooding and soil erosion, which helps to protect nearby communities and their livelihoods
- Providing an income for tree planters in lower income countries.
Madagascar is known for its incredible biodiversity, with over 200,000 endemic species of plants and animals living on the island. However, over 90% of the country’s virgin forests have been destroyed, with animal species being displaced and the local people no longer able to farm and live off the land. Estuaries once populated by mangrove trees are now bare of life, leaving the earth to be washed away into the ocean.
By purchasing a plant ,you will help to fund the non-profit, Eden Reforestation Projects, and their reforestation of the island. Leaders in responsible reforestation, Eden have, to date, planted 265 million trees, while creating an incredible 2.6 million work days for local communities.
OUR SUSTAINABILITY COMMITMENTS
We know that even the tiniest of actions towards making our planet a greener, healthier and happier place to live, which is why we’re constantly working to make our processes and practices as sustainable as possible. Ultimately, resources taken from the earth should be given back in a complete cycle, with the objective of this being zero negative impact.
We are ambitious in our goals.
- Our packaging is almost completely compostable. We understand recycling still uses energy that sometimes isn't from renewable sources and we are working hard to find a solution, such as biodegradable seed paper. We are in the process of changing our stickers to vegan stickers to help us meet this goal.
- We use delivery companies and suppliers that also align with our values and put their corporate social responsibility as a number one priority. Such as DPD who are aiming to be the greenest delivery company on the planet.
We use a next day delivery service with one of our trusted couriers. Please allow a little bit of packing time.
