Alpaca Coffee Partners With One Tree Planted
UNITED KINGDOM, September 2, 2020
Alpaca Coffee, a UK-based sustainable coffee company, announced a partnership with One Tree Planted, aiming to plant trees in the Amazon rainforest. For every 10 bags of coffee sold, Alpaca Coffee will plant one tree.
“Working with One Tree Planted makes a lot of sense for us,” said Alpaca Coffee's founder and Chief Executive Officer, Victoria Poon. “Sustainability forms the foundation of our entire business, and while we make a huge impact packaging our coffee in 100% plastic free, home compostable coffee bags, why stop there? Planting trees in the same part of the world our coffee comes from is a great way for us to give back and help the local environment.”
The objectives of this partnership include:
- To support global reforestation efforts
- To empower consumers with sustainable actions
- To raise awareness about the importance of ecosystem restoration
Trees are essential to the health of our planet, biodiversity, and reducing the harmful effects of climate change. Reforestation is consistently identified by scientists as one of the top solutions to the climate crisis and the trees planted as part of this initiative will support the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.
The partnership is designed to be an easy way for customers to get involved in reforestation efforts in the Amazon rainforest. For every 10 bags of coffee sold, Alpaca Coffee will give $1 to One Tree Planted to plant one tree. The trees are planted by local partner organizations and community volunteers.
