Emms Choice Tree Planting
With climate change and global warming effects being felt all around the world we feel we MUST do MORE.
Scientists have confirmed that planting a trillion trees would be the most effective solution to our climate crisis.
As an eco-conscious company, we want to make sure that our customers are happy with our vision and we have been thinking about doing work for GOOD.
We are delighted to announce we will now be supporting tree planting and have partnered up with JUST ONE Tree, a non-profit initiative making an impact in the fight against Global Warming by planting trees in poverty-stricken areas.
Why did we choose Just ONE Tree?
There are many charitable organisations that support tree planting and choosing the right partner was quite hard, but we decided on:
- JUST ONE Tree is a thriving small business setup by a Mum who wants to “help give our children back their future”.
- JUST ONE Tree being a UK independent business.
- JUST ONE Tree is committed to planting trees in the most vulnerable areas affected by climate change and deforestation.
- JUST ONE Tree works with UK businesses to create a meaningful way of giving something back.
- JUST ONE Tree is passionate about raising awareness through UK schools and their first non-uniform day was a great success !
The Benefits of Planting Trees
Trees are magnificent beings and the superheroes of our planet! We may not know their full benefits but did you know:
- Trees clean the air we breathe
- Trees filter the water we drink
- Trees prevent soil erosion and flooding
- Trees give life to the world’s wildlife
- Trees house complex ecosystems
- Trees supply us with medicine
- Trees provide jobs to over 1.6 billion people.
We need them in order to survive. BUT it’s NOT only about the TREES, it’s also about PEOPLE!
Planting trees in areas worst affected by deforestation helps people too. It gives them a way of earning income from nurturing and sustaining the forests – two major causes helped with one simple act.
So how will Emms Choice plant trees?
Well, we’ve already started this initiative from 1 January 2020. For each online order placed for £20 and over*, we will plant a tree – so it’s not just about us – it’s about you, our customers!
It costs £1 to plant a new tree so we will make a monthly contribution to JUST ONE Tree and they will take care of the tree planting – it’s as simple as that!
TOGETHER let's make a difference!
