Partnering with Rainforest Trust

By Lauren Churcher  |  9 February 2021  |   2 minute read.

Size really does matter when it comes to your carbon footprint – and bigger really isn’t better. We know that due to the nature of our business – manufacturing, receiving goods, and despatching all generates a lot of carbon emissions, so we’re taking action to protect our planet, and are helping our customers to do so as well. 

As well as giving customers clear information on exactly how eco friendly their packaging choices are, creating our own ranges of eco friendly packaging which have minimal environmental impact, and already donating 1% of our sales of these ranges to environmental causes, we’re extremely proud to announce that we are partnering with Rainforest Trust UK, helping to protect the world’s most threatened rainforests and tropical ecosystems; protecting endangered species, safeguarding indigenous communities and combating climate change. 

So, from now on, every time you place an order over £30, you will have the opportunity to protect threatened rainforests – and it won’t cost you a penny. As a thank you, we offer all of our customers a free gift on their order, so we saw this as an opportunity to help charities and our environment even more. After all, what gift is better than one to the environment with 1000m2 of protected rainforest? 

Rainforest Trust have already placed over 25 million acres under permanent protection which is vital for our futures. Tropical rainforests support over 50% of the world’s species, many of which are critically endangered, and are home to thousands of indigenous communities who rely on the forests for their food, water and economic prosperity. 

Rainforests also safely store billions of tonnes of carbon, helping to fight climate change and stabilise global weather patterns. In short, they are one of the most important natural resources on Earth, and their long-term protection is vital for the survival of our planet and the countless species that inhabit it – including us. Yet about 50 football pitches of tropical rainforest are destroyed every single minute.

Choosing to give your free gift to Rainforest Trust can have a hugely beneficial environmental impact. It means that the 1000m2 of trees you’re protecting with your order will safely store more than 25 tonnes of carbon which could otherwise enter the atmosphere as a greenhouse gas and contribute to even more climate change.

So when you have the option of a free gift when you place your next order with us, ask yourself, can a bag of Haribo do that? Don’t get us wrong, pens are always useful and some sweets are a great pick-me-up, but it is our shared responsibility to make an impact on the planet that we can be truly proud of.
