Every quarter we donate to One Tree Planted in order to help them plant trees around the world.
Those who shopped in our webshop during the the fourth quarter of 2022 (October 1 - December 31) have contributed to plant 1485 trees in New Zealand.
Thank you so much for helping us making a contribution to one of the most unique ecosystems in the world.
A one-of-a-kind Ecosystem
Over 80% of New Zealand was once covered in forest. Today, the forests of New Zealand are fragmented on the main islands and total tree coverage has fallen to around 25%.
New Zealand is home to unique forest ecosystems, including kauri forests, kahikatea swamp forests, pōhutukawa forests and mixed broadleaved forests. These support a diverse flora and fauna that evolved in the almost complete absence of land mammals and are almost entirely made up of native bird species found nowhere else. However, native forests like these have suffered from centuries of logging, forest clearance and invasive species that have reduced them to a fraction of their former range.
Our contribution goes to the eco-system in the Pamoa Forest in the Gisborne District of the North Island. Restoring the New Zealand's indigenous forests create habitat for wildlife, while stabilising hillsides to prevent erosion and protect local watersheds.
