The Reuseabox 2 Million Tree Challenge
We have been helping the planet with our Carboard Box Reuse Model for over 7 years. But we’ve decided now is the time to step up our environmental work.
Our 2 Million Tree Challenge will help us do just that. With your help we’re aiming to both save a million trees and plant a million trees.
Save 1 Million Trees
We want to save 1 million trees by helping companies to Reuse Cardboard Boxes.
Thanks to our unique Carbon Footprint Tool, we can calculate the exact number of trees saved by choosing to reuse a specific type and quantity of cardboard box. We can also tell you a whole range of other environmental benefits.
When you reuse 1 tonne (around 6.5 pallets of medium sized boxes) you save:
Plant 1 Million Trees
Planting trees is widely recognised as one of the most effective ways we can tackle climate change.
For every order placed for our new or used cardboard boxes, we plant a tree on your behalf. Soon you will also have the option to donate to our tree planting efforts at the checkout.
Why We Plant Trees
Trees enrich soil. Their roots remove pollutants, slowing down water absorption into the soil and reducing the risk of flooding.
Planting trees helps to rebuild the habitats of critically endangered species like Orangutans.
Deforestation reduces a forests ability to absorb CO2. Re-planting helps restore and increase the carbon sequestration potential, mitigating the effects of climate change.
Maintaining and promoting biodiversity by providing a home for thousands of species.
In 2020 we partnered with One Tree Planted to help plant trees in areas of the world that are in desperate need. These are areas where planting trees will have a real impact on biodiversity while supporting local communities. According to One Tree Planted, 46% of the world’s forests are already destroyed.
What’s Next For Our 2 Million Tree Challenge
In 2021 we plan to support more tree planting projects within the UK.
