We know that as a sustainable brand, we have to do more than just use recycled material. The effect of brands on our planet is exponential so we have to work together in order to reverse that effect. However, we are also putting our hat in the ring of one of the most competitive markets, trying to give a sustainable brand the spotlight it deserves hoping that this in turn will give consumers an accessible sustainable alternative to their usual shopping habits. As we planned our first incredible trip to the Maldives, it was obvious to us that offsetting our carbon emissions was non-negotiable and that, is where we found MoreTrees.
MoreTrees, a small business just like ours, came to us with the opportunity to offset our carbon as a business by calculating the number of trees needed to offset those emissions. They utilise worldwide partners in order to plant trees in deforested areas, plus they allow all brands to be much more transparent about their effect on our planet. Alan, CEO of MoreTrees calculated our trip to the Maldives would emit 2,559kg of carbon and we would need to plant 117 trees (9 trees per person to be exact) to offset this, so that’s exactly what they did for us.
Whilst we can’t wait to explore many more beautiful locations, it’s really the ‘every day’ running of any brand that requires action. So with that in mind, with every order placed, we’ll plant a tree to offset this, in your name! Plus we’ll putting extra in to cover all of the travel our products go through.
Alongside this, we have pledged to plant a tree for every single order placed through our website - at no extra cost to you to help aid the carbon emitted by transporting your order to you.
Ultimately MoreTrees is our starting point, to being more aware of our effect on this planet. Sometimes, that doesn’t have to be a huge change, just understanding how we can evoke change is enough to start.
