“To do good, you actually have to do something.”
With Climate change and ecological sustainability being one of the biggest challenges today, going green has never been more important and planting trees seemed like a great way to start! With that being said, we have proudly joined their “communiTREE” and partnered with TreeEra to fight climate change, offset our carbon footprint, and be a part of a community of people that want to impact our world.
What does it mean to be Tree Certified?
Being Tree Certified means that we are playing our part and trying to do something to make a difference- in both our business and on our planet. Their concept is so simple, creative and easily accessible for anybody who wants to reduce their carbon footprint. Their program allows us to plant one tree per transaction to help offset our business operations. Yeah, you read that right.
Every. Single. Transaction.
We all know that trees are important, but have you ever wondered about what one tree can really do? One tree can provide enough oxygen for a family of 4 to breathe for a day. One tree is the home of hundreds of species of insects, fungi, moss, mammals and plants. One tree can take in more than one ton of carbon dioxide in its lifetime. One tree can have the same net cooling effect as 10 room-sized air conditioners running 20 hours a day and if they are strategically planted, trees and shrubs can save you up to 25 percent on your energy bills. They are literally the longest living organisms on earth and never die of old age – they’re amazing!
Going green and making a lifestyle change, especially in business can be hard! We know that to make a difference in the world, you have to recognize that there are always changes that can be made. At COBIA, we are making those small changes, to make a positive impact. Our packaging material is made from recyclable material and our packing peanuts dissolve easily in water. With that being said, we have made our thank you cards out of seed paper, that when planted grow beautiful wildflowers.
Since starting in 2016, TreeEra has been giving affordable tree planting options to businesses and people across the world. By doing this, they are able to plant a variety of tree species multiple times throughout the year. To this date their “communitree” has planted 150,521 trees in British Columbia, Ontario, Africa, and Costa Rica (36,557 in 2020 alone) with the goal of one day reaching one billion.
