PLANT A TREE WITH TRcozy
WHY WE PLANT TREES
At TRcozy(Très Cozy), our goal is to offer great activewears for a great price, but we also think it is important to take care of the planet while we're at it. Not just to offset our CO2 emissions, but also to contribute to the regrowing of wildlife habitats and raising awareness.
Being an online-only company, we knew that shipping our products wasn't going to be great for the planet. Society's shift towards shopping online is taking its toll on our planet, so we wanted to make a positive contribution while involving our costumers in the process.
That is why we will plant one tree with every purchased item at our store.
We partnered up with Tree-Nation, a non-profit organisation dedicated to fighting climate change.
With four major projects in Nicaragua, Colombia, Niger and Madagascar, and with over 110 000 people and 1000 companies engaged, we believe this organisation can make a meaningful impact on a global scale.
Below we will explain how all this works.
According to the 2007 Tanzanian forest policy Tanzania is among the countries in the world experiencing high deforestation rates ranging from 130,000 ha to 500,000 ha per annum.
The direct agents of deforestation are: settlement and agricultural expansion, commercial charcoal and fuel wood production, overgrazing, uncontrolled fires, shifting cultivation and illegal logging.
The project will pivot the effort of reforestation by increased wood sources and sustainably restricting the villagers from extreme reliance on the natural resources of the nature reserve.
The project achieves this by providing them with free tree seedlings which will cover their farming areas and compensate for the loss of biodiversity in the nearby forests, therefore complying with the national forest policy which insists on tree planting and nature protection.
