What is Tree-Nation, and why are The Soap Story now part of it?
Tree-Nation is a non-profit organisation that allows companies to plant trees all around the world and offset their CO2 emissions. At The Soap Story we’re delighted to have set up our very own forest.
Now when customers spend £20 on our products, we’ll plant a tree in The Soap Story forest for free! But why?
Planting trees has been proven to be one of the most efficient solutions to fight Climate Change. Climate Change is caused by greenhouse gas emissions, of which CO2 is by far the most important one. Did you know that deforestation is responsible of 17% of these CO2 emissions?
Trees play a key role in our ecosystems, and cutting them has devastating effects such as:
- Species extinction
- Food shortage
- And more
Trees absorb CO2 from the atmosphere and store it. A single tree can offset up to 250 Kg of CO2 during its lifespan. So for every £20 spent on our self care goodies, you’ll also be offsetting 250Kg of CO2! Go you.
We know that The Soap Story brand and products are heading in the right direction. We’re pushing and trying our very best to switch all our packaging to recyclable and biodegrade in every round of product development, with many of our products already there! Like Soap Sponges, Super Soaps and more.
