Here at Branch we are super excited to have teamed up with the leading climate activist group Ecologi. It’s so simple; every time an item is sold we donate a percentage of each sale to Ecologi and they use these funds to plant a tree.
That’s one tree for every item purchased.
Since our launch in 2003, we have always been committed to creating products that are ethical and sustainable without compromising quality, value, or design. From day one, long before it was PC popular to support green and ethical manufacturing, we set out on a path from which we have never wavered. Whether it is the insistence of only using ethically sourced materials, supporting rural communities in Asia by working with local craftsmen and artisans or ensuring that Fair Trade policies are applied to all areas of production.
For the last few years, we have been looking for an opportunity to give something back and ensure we, as a company, are Climate Positive. We are all aware that one way to tackle climate change and offset our carbon footprint, is to plant trees. So, when the opportunity to partner with the wonderful organisation Ecologi arose we knew straight away we wanted to get involved.
In just a very short time, we have enabled Ecologi to plant 5000 trees and our forest is already growing every day.
We are looking forward to our beginnings of a few small trees becoming one huge forest.
It is now common knowledge that one of the best tools to tackle the climate crisis and keep global temperatures from rising is to plant trees. Trees are crucial to preventing ecological collapse.
Each tree planted offsets approximately 30kg of carbon a year, which over the next 25 years is a whopping 750kg per tree. So, with our partnership with Ecologi we are thrilled to be able to maintain our carbon neutral commitment.
Not only does this tree planting offset our personal contribution to things that can impact climate change, but our donation to Ecologi initiatives can speed up the movement to a better future and slow down the worrying path of our planet.
In purchasing our items, you can feel great in the knowledge that you are also playing an important role in these challenging times.
