By minimizing our use of plastics and prioritizing recyclable paper packaging, it’s vital to Slowing that we help contribute to global reforestation efforts.
Having One Tree Planted as a business partner allow us to do just that. In order to offset our paper consumption, every online order helps plant a tree wherever it is needed most.
