Trees for Schools as Part of the International Year of Biodiversity…
Planning your e-commerce project with Studiowide could help grow trees and minds and result in a 10,000 tonnes/yr carbon offset. To encourage biodiversity in the Merseyside woodland areas, Liverpool based marketing and design agency Studiowide Ltd is planting trees for schools on behalf of their clients.
Studiowide have committed to sponsoring 10 trees for each web development and e-commerce solution that they provide. The tree planting, which takes place through national environmental company Tree Appeal and local schools, reduces carbon emissions by taking carbon dioxide out of the atmosphere and ensures the survival of species threatened by habitat loss. Tree planting also maintains the ecosystems and safeguards the ecological heritage for future generations.
Tree Appeal is fronted by everyone’s favourite eco-friend, Professor David Bellamy OBE. Ken Whitley, Managing Director of Tree Appeal says, ‘It is the commitment and enthusiasm of our corporate partners like Studiowide, along with their clients, that can help us make greener living. It is important that companies make the environment integral to their business activities and by sponsoring the planting of UK biodiversity trees, Studiowide and their clients will make a very long term ecological contribution to the future well being of our planet’. 2010 is the International year of biodiversity and people all over the world are working to safeguard this irreplaceable natural wealth and reduce biodiversity loss.
Not only does tree planting safeguard the beauty of our landscapes, it is also one of the easiest ways to offset your carbon footprint. ‘Everyone has a responsibility for the environment and as an ethical company we are engaging our clients in issues that are important to our business’, says Carl Da-Costa-Greaves, Creative Director for Studiowide Ltd. Carl also comments that, ‘Preserving the environment is already top of the agenda for our clients; some retailers choose to make their products available online to help reduce their customer’s secondary carbon footprints. We decided to take this one-step further through our partnership with Tree Appeal and the planting of 10 Trees for our customers. This contributes an additional carbon offsetting of 10,000 tonnes per year, along with a certificate of plantation’. Companies who are planning a move to online retailing and who are interested in taking part in this project can contact Studiowide direct.
Early registrants can also nominate which schools they would like to have plant the saplings on their behalf. ‘We are extremely excited about our partnership with Tree Appeal. This project is made possible through our company policy to invest a portion of our profits into the environment in order to make a positive contribution to our natural woodland habitats’, says Carl. ‘We have provided a platform to allow ethical and responsible businesses to get involved with the environment through sponsoring tree planting, whilst providing an excellent learning resource for children who can watch them grow, see how wildlife is encouraged to thrive and chart the changing seasons.
We have just signed a partnership agreement with Tree Appeal to sponsor our first 100 trees. Tree appeal which is fronted by everyone’s favourite eco-friend professor David Bellamy OBE, plants trees to promote biodiversity, create habitats and improve the environment for people.
The trees are paid for by their Corporate Partners, ie, us and other businesses alike that want to make a positive contribution to the environment.
It is our intention to nominate ten trees to each of our clients upon delivery of an e-commerce website, which will count towards offsetting their carbon footprint by 10,000 tonnes / yr.
The campaign will be officially launched in mid July with advertorial and promotions to follow.
