Happy New Year, everyone!
I’m delighted to announce a new contribution scheme for Leafology in 2021:
We are now embedding restoration into our business with the brilliant TreeSisters organisation. For every single order placed, we donate directly towards the planting of a tree.
And what’s more, we’re including in today’s announcement all orders already placed since 1st Jan this year, so if you’ve bought something already in 2021, you’ll have already funded the birth of a brand new tree.
In the words of Clare Dubois, CEO of TreeSisters:
TreeSisters is an invitation to everyone to do as much radical good as they can for the planet. Our global network of treesisters is transforming both lives and landscapes in extraordinary ways. TreeSisters offers unique global programs that focus on encouraging women’s leadership, nature-connection, and significant behaviour change as we make the shift from being consumers to restorers.
Read on for more about how Tree Sisters work…
TreeSisters is funding the restoration of environments, biodiversity and communities within more than 10 major ecosystems around the global Tropics, through a diverse portfolio of vetted, trusted reforestation projects and in the process, planting millions of trees. Join us in making ecological restoration the new norm!
“We are about to witness the single greatest consumer driven, values-based transformation of business ever seen: A new norm of social and ecological awareness, care and regeneration embedded into everything in order to fulfil public need to become part of the solution.”
“When women gather, something else becomes possible. Ours is a different kind of power, a different kind of responsiveness, receptivity, subtlety and co-creativity. We need to gather, to inspire and encourage each other, because it’s time for a different relationship with life on this planet of ours.”
We plant trees to restore ecosystems and livelihoods whilst increasing protection against the extremes of climate change in multiple regions of the tropical forest belt. We do this in ways that recreate and restore natural forest ecosystems using indigenous species, fostering local knowledge and skills, and promoting women’s participation. We strive to do it intelligently, appropriately, respectfully and successfully.
Forests play a vital role in the hydrological cycles of our world, sequestering the atmospheric carbon dioxide that is driving climate change. When trees are removed, vibrant ecosystems are often overfarmed, eroded and rendered infertile in a cascade effect that is mirrored with social decline, grinding poverty and climate extremes. Reforestation can rapidly reverse these trends, stabilizing and nourishing the soils, restoring watersheds, revitalizing dry springs and providing good quality water to large populations living downstream.
Each time you order from Leafology, you will be contributing to this important movement.
There is no special button for you to click, or box for you to tick, when completing your order; the donation will be made on your half automatically.
Thank you for your support.
