At Plantable Greetings we truly believe that businesses need to do more for the world we occupy. In fact the entire foundation of this company was built on that one mentality. The goal for the company was to produce a unique desirable product that is zero waste and 100% biodegradable. Pretty cool right?
Early on in the process we had our zero waste product and we had a really good feeling about our progression on this project.
While we were all feeling very accomplished and hopeful for the weeks to come we weren't out of the woods yet. Our major hurdle was still in front of us, we had our carbon footprint from shipping our product to tackle.
Cue our partnership with Pledgeling. This partnership allows us to plant 2 trees for every card sold. Eureka! WE'VE DONE IT!
Trees help clean the air we breathe, filter the water we drink, and provide habitat to over 80% of the world's terrestrial biodiversity. Forests provide jobs to over 1.6 billion people, absorb harmful carbon from the atmosphere, and are key ingredients in 25% of all medicines. Have you ever taken an Aspirin? It comes from the bark of a tree!
The decision was an easy one. Trees are good for our health and our environment and simply our well being.
