Yes, you have planted a tree... But why is that interesting?
First, let us just say - you have no idea how much you have inspired us!
You made the decision to buy eco-friendly products, and by doing so, you've put the health of our planet above your wallet and convenience.
This means more to us than just warm fuzzy feelings...
As a new company with our fair share of growing pains and imperfections, it's often hard to get it right straight away. If you shopped with us in 2018 you may have experienced long shipping times or plastic packaging - But your support blew us away.
And because of your support - we have been able to improve our imperfections and create measurable changes for the planet.
We wanted to show you how much your support means to us.
At first, we thought about different ways to give you more value. To make it easier and cheaper for you to shop with us. And to improve your overall experience... shipping times, packaging, and a new range of quality products.
And despite it being a huge financial risk for us (a small eco-friendly business) - we decided to move all of our packaging and shipping operations to Columbus, Ohio.
This means if you’re in the USA, our products will be guaranteed to arrive in eco-friendly packaging within 2-7 days.
This is huge because it means we can give you the experience that you deserve.
But... we quickly realized that this wasn’t enough...
What we really needed to do... was go above and beyond your expectations.
So again we asked, what can we do for YOU? And what do you REALLY want?
Then, it hit us in the face like a tonne of recycled mason jars… what you REALLY want, above all, is a healthier planet. That’s the whole reason you’re here!
And so it's imperative that we offer you MORE than just a simple transaction of goods. We need every purchase to lead to a measurable and positive change for the planet.
We decided to plant a tree every time you (or anyone else) makes an order with us!
Reduce, Reuse, Recycle... and... Restore!
The charity we have partnered with is called One Tree Planted. You can find out exactly what they do by visiting their website. But in short, every time you purchase from us we plant a tree in your honor.
Your tree will help to clean water in Brazil, protect biodiversity in Indonesia, empower women in Rwanda, improve food security in Guatemala, fight back against forest fires across North America, and combat climate change.
Here are some alarming Tree Facts:
- 80% of the world’s forests are already destroyed
- 80,000 acres of forest disappear from the earth every day
- Every two seconds man destroys an area of forest the size of a football field
- Tropical forest destruction accounts for about 20 percent of current greenhouse gas emissions
- 70% of the world’s plants and animals live in forests and are losing their habitats to deforestation.
Thank you again for your support!
