We are proud to announce that we have partnered with the organisation One Tree Planted to plant 5 trees for every purchase made from our store!
We are all too aware of the devastation that precious metals & diamond mining has on the world we live in. These types of mining have caused deforestation and even the collapse of eco-systems leaving irreversible damage to our planet. Where possible our aim is to replant trees in order to restore some of those lost eco systems whilst reducing our carbon footprint.
Trees are essential for our planet to thrive, they play a part in everything from cleaning the air we breath to providing flourishing eco systems for nature to thrive. There are six vital pillars which trees play an important role:
Trees act as the lungs of our planet, collecting harmful pollutants from the air including: nitrogen oxides, ozone, carbon monoxide & carbon dioxide and releasing clean oxygen into our atmosphere.
The root systems in trees have the ability to filter pollutants from the ground. Trees also capture rainwater which reduces the chances of certain natural disasters such as, landslides & floods.
Trees have the ability to control climate change by absorbing greenhouse gases and emitting oxygen into the air. It has been shown that planting trees can significantly reduce the temperature of a city.
Being connected to nature and around trees can provide us with a sense of elation which is imperative for reducing stress.
Trees create eco-systems which provide life a wealth of life for a multitude of species - from fungi to plants & mammals.
Sustainable tree farming provides work and opportunities for locals whilst providing timber to build homes & providing fruits and nuts to be eaten
