Sustainability is at the core of Team Timbuktu and affects every decision we make. We exist to inspire women to get outdoors, and believe in minimising our impact as much as possible, which is why we plant one tree for every order. It's the least we can do for the environment that gives us so much and it's a good step in the direction of reducing our carbon footprint before we're able to explore carbon neutrality.
Not only is planting trees excellent for carbon sequestration, it's also helps to restore forests and reduce poverty, by creating employment. We've partnered with Eden Reforestation Projects to help us out with the physical planting, ensuring local communities are meaningfully employed and the right trees are planted for the right locations, enabling the trees greatest chance of growth.
Deforestation is a global issue caused by a multitude of factors, but the regions that are most impacted are poverty stricken and underdeveloped areas which is why we chose to work with Eden Projects whom work with local villages and communities in Nepal, Madagascar, Haiti, Indonesia, Mozambique, Kenya, Honduras and Nicaragua.
We've planted over 3,500 trees so far thanks to you, and we can't wait to see our impact grow as we do too.
