Plant A Tree
BLARA GREEN CAMPAIGN
Blara Organic House has always incorporated sustainability and social responsibility into our DNA from our environmental and ethical ways of harvesting cotton to dyeing our products with natural plant-based dyes. However, we never stop striving for better way to make this world a more livable place. With this in mind, we have decided to collaborate with non-profit NGO Tree-Nation based in Belgium to plant trees around the world. This would :
- Reduce CO2 emissions
- Help with forest restoration
- Provide habitat for animals
What made us to come up with this idea?
A considerable proportion of our business is conducted through online channels which means that corrugated shipping containers and emissions due to transportation of products can have negative effects on the environment.
Therefore, to offset this impact, we have turned to tree-planting. As we know that trees are the raw materials of corrugated cardboards and paper and that trees through photosynthesis, takes away carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and turns them into oxygen. Moreover, trees can serve as habitat for birds and other animals. Due to deforestation as a result of natural or human causes, animals have lost their homes and many species have gone into extinction. Tree-planting can thus be a great way to restore the ecosystem to its homeostasis.
Eden Projects, Madagascar
To kick start this campaign, we have reserved a hundred trees to be planted in Madagascar, Africa by our customers which is part of the Eden Reforestation Projects or simply Eden Projects, a reforestation non-profit NGO working to rebuild natural landscapes in third world countries destroyed by deforestation. Our company has purchased a tree on behalf of each of our employee as a demonstration of our collective commitment and support to this reforestation project.
Deforestation is a major issue in Madagascar because of its high concentration of endemic species and extreme rates of habitat loss. In response to the large-scale loss of mangroves and upland forests Eden Reforestation Projects initiated the Madagascar Reforestation Project. The program began in 2007 and since its inception Eden has successfully planted over 16 million mangrove and dry deciduous trees in this remote area of northwest Madagascar.
Blara's Commitment :
A Very Meaningful Gift in Honour of New Life
What else is more meaningful than planting a tree to celebrate new life? Blara Organic House offers our customers who recently welcomed new lives into this world the opportunity to plant a tree as a gift. The tree symbolises new life and will continue to grow with the child as they get older. This will be the first contribution of the child to our beloved Earth.
Plant a Tree and Give Back to Earth
Aside from planting new trees for newborns, we have provided a chance for you to plant a tree either for yourself or on someone else’s behalf. Customers can plant a tree in honour of themselves or a special someone. What a beautiful way to give back to Mother Earth!
