A Tree Planted for Every Order
Since 2019, we have partnered with the non-profit Borneo Nature Foundation who plant a seedling in the Borneo rainforest for every Christmas Tree World order made on our website - at no extra cost to our customers.
We have already donated more than ￡40,000 to the foundation over the past few years, enough for approximately 40,000 seedlings to be planted in Borneo – and it’s all thanks to our customers’ eco-friendly purchasing decision.
Through our collaboration, we are helping to restore the fire-damaged rainforest and save the home of the wild Bornean orangutans. This is just one of the ways we are becoming a more eco-friendly artificial Christmas tree supplier in the UK. (Our warehouse is also solar-powered and we use software solutions to cut down on air travel.)
Around half of Borneo’s natural forests have been lost in the past few decades, and they are continuing to decline at a rapid pace. As one of the world’s most biodiverse forests, it has ecological and environmental importance that we simply cannot afford to lose.
"In just four short decades, Borneo has lost more than 50% of its tropical rainforest coverage, due to industrial-scale deforestation, illegal logging, and wildfires caused by man-made interference. This is coupled with the devastating effects on the local wildlife, with animals at danger from both poachers and losing their natural habitat.
"This pledge is one of the most significant we've received to date. We're grateful to the Christmas Tree World team for their support and we're looking forward to working together to further protect the biodiversity of Borneo."
