£500 Sebulan untuk WLT

To date, WLT has helped secure more than 881,000 acres of threatened habitat in 20 countries.
EDEN REFORESTATION PROJECT
We plant a tree for every order
We feel deeply connected to our environment and nature, that's why we want to give something back to our planet. We have decided to plant 1 tree for every order in our shop.
We plant trees because they are essential to create a more sustainable future. Yet 900 million trees are destroyed worldwide every year. By planting trees we can help to reduce extreme poverty in Kenya, Madagascar and Mozambique, because on the one hand the villagers have work on site by planting countless trees, on the other hand we support the reforestation of the destroyed forests.
ONE MINUTE OF NATURE FROM OUR PLANTING SITES
Eden Reforestation Project
In order to realize our ambitious goal and to plant a tree for every order, we have partnered with the Eden Reforestation Project.
Our goal is to help thousands of people in the poorest areas of the world.
Every time you place an order, we plant a tree. In doing so, you will help people who live in extreme poverty achieve a permanent income and support them in changing their lives. For a successful and lasting afforestation it is important to get involved with the local villages and communities and to work with them. Eden Reforestation Projects uses its "Employ to Plant" method to support members of the local communities where we plant. With permanent employment, people living in extreme poverty can afford everyday items such as food, shelter, clothing and medicine.

Plastic waste in the ocean is a huge issue. We're currently researching ways to find out how we can help. More information will be provided here when we have it available to share.
We will continue to look into different ways in which our employees and customers can help. Even small changes, like switching from plastic hand wash dispensers to soap bars, can make a big difference over time.
DOING OUR BIT
Coastal Clean Up
We were thrilled to team up with Mindful Chef for their amazing Coastal Clean Up initiative. Back in September, we headed to our local beach to collect as much plastic and rubbish as we could.
The event was held in partnership with Marine Conservation Society (MCS) as part of The Great British Beach Clean, and we were delighted to take part and do our bit for the planet.
Plastic is not only detrimental to marine life; it also pollutes our beaches, parks and rivers. To add to the 300 million tonnes of plastic waste produced each year, there’s been a sharp rise in single-use plastic waste during the Coronavirus pandemic, and the easing of lockdown restrictions in the UK saw large amounts of litter being left on beauty spots across the country. That’s why this year’s Coastal Clean Up was particularly important.
On the day, a whopping 1,796 people, including Naturecan, volunteered to help clean up Britain’s beaches. In total, 34,000L of rubbish - the equivalent of 68,000 plastic bottles - was collected from 347 locations.
We are planning on doing this again very soon in the future, so please keep an eye out for emails and social posts if you want to get involved.
