For Every product you Purchase, We Plant a Tree
Sophie & Bird is named after our children - it's a little reminder that challenges and inspires us to achieve all that we aspire to be. We have partnered with the amazing team at One Tree Planted, so that for every product sold we donate a tree to one of many reforestation projects around the world.
Our ambition is to plant 1 million trees. Yes, that's a big goal but we think we can do it. And it is not just about 'walking the talk' and reducing our corporate carbon footprint - that's just the baseline. In a world of increasing negativity and volatility, we want to use our business as a force for good by making a positive change in children's overall health and wellbeing. One tree at a time.
How does it work?
One Tree Planted is a charity with a mission to make it simple for people to help the environment. Donations for each project are pooled and sent to carefully selected reforestation partners, enabling them to cover the costs required to get these trees in the ground. Reforestation partners are vetted to ensure that a tree survival rate of 80% to 90% can be maintained. We currently plant in North America, Latin America, Asia and Africa.
By upholding our core values of consciously working with quality suppliers, focusing on healthy materials and reinvesting in the planet - not least by raising awareness of initiatives like 'One Tree Planted' - we hope to motivate others to make positive lifestyle choices and do something awesome for the environment.
We're really grateful to One Tree Planted who make tree planting seriously simple and straightforward, and to our customers who make all of this possible.
