We’re all aware of how important trees are to the stability of our planet, and as caretakers, it’s our responsibility to give back. We have made it our mission to help offset our carbon footprint by planting trees and reducing our emission consumption.
Plant Trees. Save Lives.TM
|We started our partnership with Trees for the Future in 2009. Our tree planting efforts are a two-part program. First, we achieve an annual Carbon Neutral designation by planting enough trees to absorb all of the carbon we emit every year. Second, we plant a tree for each and every product sold on Zavida’s official site.|
By partnering with Trees for the Future in their Tree Planting Initiative, Zavida offsets all of our carbon emissions on an annual basis. Not only do the trees planted help the environment, but Trees for the Future plants in developing nations, enabling them to restore their environment, grow more food, and build a sustainable future. They revitalize degraded lands by providing farmers with tree seed, technical training, and on-site planning assistance to stimulate the local economy and promote tree planting in all sorts of environments globally.
If you are interested in learning more about Trees for the Future or would like to help out, please go to their website at www.trees.org.
Part 1: Help Restore the Environment
Over 680,000 Trees Planted Worldwide and Growing
Since 2011, Zavida committed to planting a tree for each and every product sold on our official site. Whether you purchase a 2 lb bag or a 12 oz bag, rest assured that a tree is being planted in the developing world where it's needed most. We welcome you to join us on the journey to reach our goal of planting 1,000,000 trees worldwide, and we thank you for growing with us.
Part 2: Certified Carbon Neutral
Zavida continually evaluates our operations to find ways to reduce our carbon footprint and climate impact. In addition to planting a tree for each and every product sold online, we plant even more trees to offset all of our carbon emissions on an annual basis. Our total carbon output is calculated by including all raw materials, transportation, and energy use, and we then plant enough trees to absorb all of the carbon we emit every year.
When considering shipping options, we’re always concerned about the environmental effects of the materials we use, along with how we can further reduce our carbon footprint. That’s why we’re proud to use only 100% recycled corrugated boxes for all shipping packages. The main environmental advantage of 100% recycled corrugated boxes is that they are made from recycled paper and can be recycled again after they have been used. In addition, manufactures of 100% recycled corrugated cartons primarily source their materials from recycling plants and from managed and sustained pine tree forests wherein the timber is replaced with new seedlings to begin the process over again. Finally, it saves considerable energy in the production of these cartons.
