Sustainability is what we are about!
Plastic Free Vibes is about our and your journey towards sustainable living. We care about what kind of impact we have on the environment - not just in context of helping to reduce plastic pollution, but also in context of protecting biodiversity and helping to prevent further climate change. Like our customers, we are Eco Warriors who care and are the change - and have a positive impact on our amazing Planet.
Thus, as a start, we have partnered with One Tree Planted and we donate one tree for every order made by you!
One Tree Planted are an environmental charity, dedicated to global reforestation. They plant trees to restore nature and biodiversity. They also raise awareness about the importance of trees, and motivate younger generations to do something positive for the environment.
So far, the trees we donated on your behalf have gone to an incredible project in Uganda, which is a the result of collaboration between One Tree Planted and the Jane Goodall Institute in order to help recover vital forests for chimpanzee habitat. The Albertine Rift is globally recognized as a biodiversity hotspot. It ranks first among 119 distinct terrestrial eco-regions of continental Africa in terms of endemic species of birds, mammals, reptiles, and amphibians, and second in terms of globally threatened species. Over 50% of birds, 39% of mammals, 19% of amphibians, and 14% of reptiles and plants of mainland Africa reside in this region. This restoration project will take place in Uganda, and will plant and protect 3 million trees. The initiative will also restore degraded areas, promote agroforestry practices, and strengthen forest monitoring and law enforcement. It will also continue to support over 3,500 households in sustainable livelihoods.
We’re honoured to contribute to reforestation through One Tree Planted as an integral part of our business model!
I would love to hear from you if you have any feedback, questions, or just would like to be in touch.
And ... (thanks for reading this long message!) ... our partnership with One Tree Planted is connected to our aim to offset our CO2 emisssions. So, watch this space for more sustainability news at Plastic Free Vibes!
