With The GoReusable 'Plants One Tree' Cup | #Plant10MillionTrees Campaign
At GoReusable we're on a mission with our social enterprise to plant 10 million trees and reduce the world's dependency on 500bn single-use cups a year with our stunning GoReusable Eco 'Plant One Tree' cups.
Each cup purchased, we plant one tree. We think that is amazing. You can tree planted by us and at the same time have a branded eco cup to mark this event, for as little as £5.20+VAT.
Whether your organisation is looking partner with an existing tree planting programme or are already planting trees yourselves, with the 'Plant One Tree' cup we have something to offer you all.
HOW CAN YOUR ORGANISATION PARTNER WITH US:
- If you are already planting trees there are two ways we could work with you:
we can provide branded reusable 'Plant One Tree' cups that you can use to mark the planting of your trees. You could use these cups as rewarding those taking part in the tree planting or use them to raise funds. In this case, as you'd have already planted the tree, we would remove the cost of us planting the tree from the cup.
In addition to the trees you have planted, you could boost the number of trees planted and purchase extra trees with the GoReusable 'Plant One Tree' cups. The cups would be branded with your campaign logo so you can give out the cups to your community to mark that you have planted trees and make your campaign more visible and tangible.
- If you are not planting trees already we can brand our cups with your logo, and you can order 200, 500, 5000 branded 'plant one tree' cups that rapidly show your commitment to the plant and you and feel great in the knowledge you've planted a wood or forest!
ISN'T A PLANT ONE TREE CUP GOING TO BE UNAFFORDABLE?
In the UK the cost of planting a native tree with a UK tree planting programme starts at around £6 and typically is around £12. Our branded reusable eco cups that plant one tree are at the lower end of the UK tree planting prices. This in effect means you're getting a branded reusable cup for free.
WHY ELSE SHOULD I USE YOUR TREE PLANTING PROGRAMME, APART FROM THE AMAZING VALUE OUR PROGRAMME OFFERS?
Normally if you plant trees, you'll not get the recognition you deserve. With our 'Plant One Tree' cup, you have something very tangible to mark and remember the event and talk about.
There is free marketing support - a certificate and the free use of our supporters' logo, that you can use on your website, social media and email signatures. Plus we'll mention you on our social media.
It's something different, unique and extra you can add to your corporate social responsibility and tree planting plans
With our official partnership with the National Forest Foundation, you know your tree will be planted!
CAN WE PLANT PLANT OUR OWN FOREST WITH YOUR PROGRAMME?
Yes, this is possible. If you plant over 30,000 trees, we can arrange for an area of land can be designated as your forest! That's pretty phenomenal.
WHY PLANT TREES?
It's hard to ignore the amount of press attention tree planting s is getting at the moment with the climate crisis. Trees play a vital role in storing carbon and also releasing oxygen and it is universally accepted that tree planting is one of the major ways to redress the climate crisis and reduce the amount of carbon in the atmosphere.
Here are some key tree facts for you:
- Each one of our trees planted is estimated to store/sequester half a ton over the course of it's lifetime. To put this into perspective in the UK the average person's carbon footprint is close to 15 tonnes a year.
- 12.4m acres of forest are permanently converted to growing commodity crops, such as palm oil, each year.
- Trees also clean water, soil and provide an environment that is good for our well being. Who doesn't love a tree?
HOW ARE THE TREES PLANTED?
GoReusable are official partners with the National Forest Foundation (NFF), a tree planting charity. You can buy the cups safe in the knowledge the NFF were carefully selected as partners for the main reason they are the most reputable and transparent tree planting charity that is fully audited. Charity Navigator, an independent evaluator of charities, gives the NFF a transparency score of 96%. Have no doubt your trees will be planted.
Also, whilst we looked into planting trees in the UK, there simply aren't any programmes that plant trees at price that would make a cup affordable. The US have the land, and large tree planting programmes to make this possible.
