1 million trees by 2030
Our planet promise is to donate 1.000.000 trees by 2030 through various tree-planting organisations.
Climate change is accelerating. At this pace, deforestation and climate change can cause us to lose nearly 25% of nature’s inhabitants in the next 80 years. Most of this is due to human activities, such as burning fossil fuels like coal, oil and gas.
But if we act now, we might be able to preserve our nature. Wooden Amsterdam advocates for our planet. That is why we are investing 1% of our annual revenue to Trees For the Future. We’ve been doing this since 2017.
Sustainable lighting with a good cause
Together with Good & Mojo, two trees are planted per 1 lamp purchased. Eden Reforestation Projects is the tree-panting organisation that plants these trees all over the globe, such as in Africa, Indonesia and South America. This double-planting initiative resulted in 5.714 tree donations in 2021 alone.
Supporting reforestation projects with every order
Our partner unFootprint helps us to reduce CO2 emissions by planting trees through Trees For the Future. This tree-planting organisation currently works with thousands of farmer families in five countries in Sub-Saharan Africa. Their focus is on implementing Forest Garden programmes in Cameroon, Kenya, Senegal, Uganda, and Tanzania, as these are the areas where they are having the greatest impact. For every order placed on woodenamsterdam.com, 1% goes to this tree-planting initiative. Every contribution helps us get one step closer to building a more sustainable planet.
The road so far
We started supporting the planet through tree-planting organisations in 2017. This includes Trees For All, Trees for the Future and Eden Reforestation Projects. In 2021 alone, we have donated 24.194 trees in total, which will absorb 1.569 tons of CO2 in the next 10 years. That’s equivalent to the yearly CO2 emissions of 172 people.
Our ultimate goal is to donate 1 million trees by 2030. To stay in line with this goal, we are striving to donate 50.000 trees in 2022.
