CLEARVIEW TOWNSHIPS FIRST REFILLERY!!
It's simple. Every time you order online, we will plant a tree.
It's important to us that we offset our carbon footprint caused by shipping online. This is the PERFECT solution.
But where are the trees being planted and by who?
We have chosen to donate to Kenya’s Kijabe Forest. Roughly one-third of the original high-canopy forest still stands and provides important habitat for biodiversity. The forest is only about 5,000 hectares, but a community of almost 200,000 people depend on it for water, wood, and agriculture. Increasing pressure for land poses significant threats to the region, leading to the over-extraction of resources and illegal timber harvesting.
Planting trees here will help protect this vital ecosystem, promote environmental education, and foster sustainable livelihoods through seed collection and ecotourism.
Why did you choose Kenya?
Andrew and I have a special place in our hearts for Kenya. We filmed a documentary there over the course of a couple years and we fell in love with the land and the people.
When we were there, it became obvious to us that there was little to no support offered when it comes to environmental education and sustainable infrastructures.
We would like to give back by way of planting trees to offset our carbon footprint AND also to help create jobs, spread awareness and instil hope within communities. After all, we believe that CHANGE happens when the community is empowered to take charge!
Planting trees is one of the best ways to combat the damaging effects of climate change. Trees help clean the air we breathe, filter the water we drink, and provide habitat to over 80 percent of the world’s terrestrial biodiversity. Trees also provide tremendous social impacts by providing jobs to over 1.6 billion people, empowering women in underdeveloped nations, and supporting communities devastated by environmental damage.
