Whether it is for company events,Christmas and new year gifts, work anniversaries, or employee appreciation, incorporating tree-planting is something that businesses should think carefully about.

Why trust is one of our core values

from Hannah Schragmann 14 October 2022 |

Today, we would like to shed some light on the question of how important transparency and trust is for us. Trust is one of the core values we stand for - one which is incredibly important to all our customers, bothprivate andcorporate. Within the tree-planting sector, many insecurities circulate, not least because of negative headlines and misconduct of some players. Scandals around double-counting or unsustainable mono-culture projects are damaging for the whole sector and undermine trust for an activity which plays a crucial role in the fight against climate change and for a more just world. Many therefore ask us what we think about such problems and how we can make sure that such issues do not happen in our projects.

How green gifting can transform our way of living

from Hannah Schragmann 23 September 2022 |

When does the Christmas season begin for you? When the shops start to sell Quality Street? Or when you open the first Advent calendar? For me, it's just before the first Sunday of Advent, when I put up the Advent wreath together with my family. However, in Germany, the start of the 35th calendar week already marks the official opening of the commercial Christmas season. This means that the Christmas goods for this season have already started to arrive on the supermarket shelves. Pretty early, isn't it?

Our first pilot project in India

from Hannah Schragmann 15 November 2021 |

In this blog post we are happy to present our first pilot project to you. This project is being implemented in northern India in the municipality of Abohar and other neighboring villages in the Indian states of Rajasthan and Punjab. The latest IPCC report shows India needs to make drastic changes, including reducing carbon emissions, to prevent climate catastrophe. At the same time, poverty and a lack of start-up capital keep the farmers trapped in a vicious circle. So our GROW MY TREE team saw this as an opportunity to expand our roots there. 


After one year of operations, it's time to reflect: Impact Report | November 2021

from Hannah Schragmann 02 November 2021 |

After one year of operations, it’s time to reflect. Our Impact Report for the 2020 - 2021 season is finally here and we are excited to share with you the lasting differences we have made together as a community. ZSome key statistics that we can take from our Impact Report include that since the launch of our ever growing community we have planted over 300.000 trees . This means that more than 6.600 tons of CO2 will be sequestered year over year more than 3.000 hours of work have been provided in the Global South, more than 450 hours of education have been provided and 1,5 million m² of land restored

A reaction to the IPCC Report: Our planet needs green help

from Hannah Schragmann 16 August 2021 |

The fact that forests are burning and thus even more of the CO2 stored in trees is being released into the atmosphere is nothing short of an environmental disaster. Not only are forest fires depriving us of much needed carbon sinks, they are even turning the large areas of forest into carbon emitters. What does this mean for planting trees to combat climate change? Is planting trees even worth it now?
