EVERY PRODUCT = 1 TREE PLANTED
Every product we produce is using resources – no matter if production, logistics or shipping to our customers. We are aware of this problem and decided to give back to reduce our ecological footprint. This is why we are committing to a risky, but as we think right step: We plant one tree for every product that is leaving our warehouse. No matter if its a goggle or a neck warmer, fully payed or for free. WE WILL PLANT ONE TREE!
For this project, we have partnered with Eden Reforestation Projects, a non profit NGO. Their goal is to reforest forests in Nepal, Indonesia, Madagaskar, Haiti, Mozambique and other. All projects are supervised by professional teams and executed by local workforce. Since the start of the project, Eden has planet over 220 million trees and created over 3.500 jobs in some of the poorest places on the planet.
Help us to give back and support our efforts!
Why planting trees?
Trees are in many ways the key to a sustainable future. As the climate is changing, trees “eat up” green house gases like CO2 and exhale pure oxygen. Thats why the biggest forest regions on the planet, especially the Amazonas rain forest, are called “the lung of the planet”. Without these forest, we would not have the climate that our planet has gifted us today. Scientists and politicians around the world aste desperate looking for solutions to capture green house gases. The easiest solution: more trees!
Since hundreds of years, forests around the globe protect us humans from natural disasters. Roots stabilize the ground and secure the thin layer of soil that is enabling life in the Amazonas region.Coastal forests secure shores against the floods and hinder erosion. But if you think, only tropical regions benefit from trees, you are wrong. Also in Europe and North America forests provide vital services to us humans by protecting roads and villages against landslides and avalanches for example. Without the forests, you would probably not be able to drive in and put of your favorite ski village during a snowstorm.
Why Eden Projects?
Eden Projects is following a sustainable approach, that does not only focusses on planting trees and helping the eco-system, but also focusses on social and economical aspects. World wide, Eden employs thousands of people in some of the poorest regions in the world. by our donations, these people get the opportunity to work and do something good for the environment. The social impacts are enormous: families have money to buy food and kids can go to school. While the projects core is about planting trees, the actual effects go way beyond and create chances towards a financially, socially and ecological sustainable future.
