Because protection alone, is no longer enough.

This is our reforestation project.

Some companies make it easy to blindly consume with no regard for negative consequences.

With us, the story's a bit different.

The 1+1 Principle

With every product sold, we plant a tree. It's so simple, and it's so effective. We are lucky enough to be working with the renowned reforestation network Eden Projects. Each month, we donate the appropriate amount to the organization, and receive detailed reports on where the trees were planted, and how our contributions are helping local communities, as well as nature.

So, where exactly are these so-called "trees"?

We send our donations to three designated sites and use GPS coordinates and photos to track our trees. You can find our designated sites in Madagascar, Nepal and Mozambique.

27°56’4.36”N / 85°55’54.79”E

Nepal

The Hindi region in Nepal has suffered from years of deforestation, which has reduced access to vital resources and drastically increased the risk of landslides. Restoring the mountain slopes is an essential step towards healing the damaged region.

15°17’18.96”S / 46°57’51.32”E

Madagascar

The spot where our mangrove trees grow is home to 263 hectares of land, and is located in the mouth of Mahajamba Bay. Unfortunately, charcoal production has had a large negative impact on not only the area itself, but the deciduous surrounding forests as well. These areas are also in need of reforestation.

19°41’58.85”S / 35°6’14.01”E

Mozambique

The village of Chitsape, Mozambique has experienced a massive loss of its mangrove forests due to over-harvesting for charcoal and timber. To fully restore the site, over four million trees need to be planted.

Mangroves are multitaskers.

A large portion of our contributions are invested in the reforestation of mangroves in Madagascar. One mangrove sequesters 308.3 kg of CO2 over a life span of 25 years — that's equivalent to the emissions of a road trip from Stockholm to Rome! They are also a key component in the coastal protection system, as they prevent land from being eroded and washed into the ocean. As part-time coast guards (see what we did there), mangroves also help protect the 200,000 animal and plant species that exist nowhere else in the world, many of which are threatened by extinction. So if you are ever debating getting a nucao bar, do it for the lemurs!

Our partner.

Eden Projects is a globally active and experienced NGO, which works hard to help companies become more sustainable and improve the well-being of those in need. Eden does this by employing locals and taking care of reforested areas in the long term. For the planting of fallow land and the subsequent maintenance of these forests, workers from the local area are employed, who then receive a fair and long-term income for their work.
