ESCREO is partnering with (more:trees) to plant a tree every time someone places an order on our website. Going forward with every purchase, no matter how large or small, you will benefit from the new partnership. After you complete your purchase, you will receive an email confirmation with more details on the forestry project that we have supported in your name. It is a small change for us but multiple small changes make a big impact on our planet. This is our first step towards becoming the first CO2 neutral whiteboard paint company by the end of 2022 as we are committed to driving sustainability in our industry.
How do we plant the trees?
We work in collaboration with (more:trees). They power us to plant trees in forests across the world on behalf of our clients, supporting climate action while furthering other sustainable development goals. They work with tree planting partners who employ local tree experts to plant the right trees, in the right locations, in the right conditions.
Their local experts also navigate any challenges along the way. This enables us to ensure that your trees are planted for ultimate growth and CO2 sequestration. It’s time to take climate action. While shopping with us, you can help sequester carbon emissions with ease. Together with you, we can make a big impact on our planet!
What is your impact?
Carbon dioxide is one of the biggest drivers of climate change, which makes forests one of our greatest solutions. Trees capture and absorb carbon dioxide from the air while releasing oxygen in its place. And, their size, root systems and long life span mean they can do this at scale. Our planet is harmed, but if we all make a small change, we can make a big impact.
Protecting the planet starts with you and tree planting is the perfect place to begin. One tree sequesters an estimated 0.3t of CO2 over its growth life. Sometimes it’s the little things that count. Don’t you agree? It is worth mentioning that planting trees also brings numerous co-benefits. Here some of them just to list a few:
- Nourishing our planet: Trees clean the air, filter water, regulate rainfall, improve soil quality, offer shelter and reduce flooding.
- Reducing extreme poverty: Trees provide work, improve crop yield, generate income sources and help the local economy.
- Supporting biodiversity: Trees support different species of animals, invertebrates, plants, fungi, lichens and mosses.
- Reversing deforestation: Trees help healthy forests re-emerge. They restore animal habitats, purify water sources, replenish soil, control flooding and improve weather patterns.
Where are we planting your trees?
Our current locations include:
Haiti: An idyllic tourist destination, Haiti is known for its crystal-clear waters, miles of breathtaking beaches and friendly locals amongst the vast array of other wonders. However, Haiti is a fragile nation, often plagued by natural disasters and political unrest that leads to extreme poverty, deforestation and devastation.
Mida Creek, Kenya: Mida Creek is a tidal inlet on the east coast of Africa, in Kenya. Large-scale mangrove deforestation coupled with the destructive El Niño in 1997 has led to limited fresh water, declining wild fisheries, soil and coastal erosion, reduced food sources and limited income. In turn, this leads to extreme poverty, reduced wildlife and endangered sea life.
Ankarafantsika National Park, Madagascar: Established as a national park in 2002, Ankarafantsika plays a fundamental role in supporting Madagascan wildlife, inhabitants and culture. Unfortunately, it has been a victim to deforestation, which has led to problematic climatic events including cyclones, droughts and floods.
