Partnership

We have decided to partner with One Tree Planted in order to give back to our planet. Through our partnership with One Tree Planted a tree will be planted for each order on our website. It's that simple!

That means that you guys are helping to make this planet a better place with your order. 

The Wholesome Store will donate $1 from every order to One Tree Planted, which is a non profit organisation that partners with reforestation organisations in 4 regions around the world: North America, Latin America, Africa, and Asia. 

Working with One Tree Planted allows us offset carbon emissions from shipping your orders all over the globe.

 

What does reforestation projects benefit:

Air

planting trees pulls harmful pollutants out of the air and releases clean oxygen for us to breathe.

Water

trees filter water, prevent floods, protect soil, and maintain the earths water cycles.

Biodiversity

forests provide habitat to many animals, birds, insects, fungi, moss and plants.

Social impact

planting trees provides jobs & food security to many communities.

⋆Health

trees and nature reduce stress, aid in recovery and promote wellbeing.

⋆Climate

trees absorb carbon dioxide & other pollutants, helping to clean air and regulate climate.

The time between our donation and the actual tree planting will vary depending on the region we have chosen and the time of year. Planting usually happens during the rainy season, when the soil provides optimum conditions for tree survival.

 

 

Packaging

Aside from planting trees, we are also committed to reducing our impact on the planet in other ways. You may notice your order came in a parcel bag that is compostable! That's right, these bags are home compostable. We use mailers by The Better Packaging Co and also use eco-friendly, soy ink dyed, acid free tissue paper and stickers from noissue. 

We also request from our suppliers that they do not send our stock individually plastic wrapped. All of our clothing comes in bags made from cassava starch and we source eco-friendly jewellery boxes that can be recycled. Our protein pouches are the next step: we are constantly researching more eco-friendly packaging and asking our suppliers if they can create some for us! - hopefully we will have good news on this front soon!
