Company Forest Program

Embedding Restoration into your Business and Culture

Creating a New Normal

This is a very simple first step into tree-dom that demonstrates your values and commitment to start giving back to Nature with trees. We are inviting you to embed tree planting into your business in whatever way has the greatest impact on you, your team, your company and your customers. You make the choice to donate trees every time a product or service is sold, or make a donation as a percentage of sales or profits. Not the least possible to look good, but the most possible to do good!

Why do this?

Because we need more trees on a scale difficult to imagine to help draw down carbon while we figure out how to transform what it means to be human. Tropical trees are one of Nature’s most powerful solutions to climate change. 

We need leaders of a new normal - where you cannot take from Nature, without giving back, and we need consumers to recognise the positive impacts of purchasing from those who embed restoration in their products. Regardless of the size of your business, in the new normal, we are all needed; we are all part of the solution.

Embedding reforestation into your business can be fun!

Every business is different and our program enables you to raise funds for trees in ways which work for you. Whether a product or service based company, there is a way to be creative. Here are a few examples:

Through sales and products:

  • Donate trees with every purchase:
    • E.g. 1 tree for every box of tea sold
    • E.g. 5 trees for every monthly membership
  • Give your customers the option to “buy”or ‘’add’’ trees at checkout (our data shows that 65% say yes) 
    • E.g Add two tropical trees for an extra $1
    • Ask customers if they will round up and donate the difference
  • Match customers donations or ask them to match yours
  • Donate a percentage of company sales, earnings or profits

 

Through culture shifts:

  • Donate trees when customers opt-out of consumption 
    • E.g. 1 tree every time someone opts out of the packaging
    • E.g. 1 tree every time a customer brings their own mug or water bottle
    • E.g. Plant trees as ‘rewards’ gifts
  • Donate trees for job applications, employee surveys, as Christmas cards 
  • Donate through your own unique campaign:
    • E.g. “Help Us plant 1 million trees over 5 years”
    • E.g. Plant 10,000 trees in a year
    • E.g. Plant a Forest for Black Friday or World Earth Day, 
  • Other creative ideas you have - let us know we would love to hear them!

Our cost per tree is £0.40/US$0.50.
