One Tree Planted - 'Your Subscription, Our Commitment'
Through our coffee box subscriptions, we work with the environmental charity One Tree Planted, whereby we donate on behalf of every subscriber, every month, in order to help support global reforestation. Trees are hugely important for air, water, biodiversity and the communities in which coffee originates, as well as the communities in which we all live. Without the work that One Tree Planted is doing to address global reforestation, ecosystems around the world would become increasingly threatened and the effects of climate change would be more pronounced, all of which would have direct impact on all our lives. We're proud to call them our partners.
Since their inception in 2014, One Tree Planted have more than doubled the number of trees they plant on a yearly basis. Through a series of reforestation partners across North America, South America, Asia, and Africa, they have planted countless trees following devastation caused to forests after fires and floods. In doing so, they have created jobs, built communities and helped to protect the biodiversity of these habitats.
Whilst this is all well and good, we fear the importance of trees is a little under appreciated, which is troubling as their impact is considerable. Our aim through this partnership is to ensuring people are aware of why deforestation is so critical and what the impact would be if One Tree Planted weren't doing what they do. Each tree helps to clean the air we breathe, filter the water we drink and provide a habitat to over 80% of the world's terrestrial biodiversity. Whats more is that trees also play a part in providing direct and indirect jobs to over 1.6 billion people, absorb harmful carbon from the atmosphere and are key ingredients in 25% of all medicines.
Fortunately for all our subscribers, we've made it easy for them to get involved. The £1 we donate on behalf of every subscriber, results in one tree planted - literally. Its as simple as that. Through the support from our community, we've already help to plant thousands of trees... and we'll plant thousands more. Together we can do more and will do more.

Trees For Air Trees are like the vacuums of our planet. Through their leaves and bark, they suck up harmful pollutants and release clean oxygen for us to breathe.
Trees For Water Trees play a key role in capturing rainwater and reducing the risk of natural disasters like floods and landslides. Their intricate root systems act like filters.
Trees For Biodiversity A single tree can be home to hundreds of species of insect, fungi, moss, mammals, and plants. Without trees, forest creatures would have nowhere to call home.
Trees For Social Impact The forestry industry provides endless job opportunities, and equally, provides timber to build homes and shelter, wood to burn for cooking and heating, and food for us all.
If the above wasn't enough to kickstart the eco-warrior within you, we've decided to supplement our charity partnerships by addressing the waste that we are generating through our subscription services.
Coffees shouldn't cost the earth and delivering them shouldn't either. Recycling isn't always the best answer, with reduction and re-use better alternatives, in turn saving recycling's cost of energy and pollution output. Equally so, typical subscription boxes are often oversized, half full or filled with interior packaging, resulting in unnecessary waste and needless freight weight. Addressing this, we deliver our subscriptions using a range of box sizes as well as a mixture of wrapping and tape, all in effort to become more compact, 100% recyclable thereafter. Delivering worldwide with the packaging chosen per destination country, we can assure they’ll arrive undamaged and ready to be brewed. Plus, as it is what’s on the inside that always counts, our parcels are largely unbranded so that we can pass all of the cost savings onto you. Win win for everyone.
