Little Difference is a UK based business founded by Sophie and Pete. This adventure obsessed, nature loving couple have used their love for the Earth to create greeting cards that are made from 100% recycled cardboard and are packaged in biodegradable materials.
While their business is named “Little Difference”, Sophie and Pete are actually making a HUGE difference by planting trees in Africa to reforest areas that have been impacted. 1 card sold = 1 tree planted! So far they have planted 45,000 trees in total to reforest areas in Ethiopia and Madagascar.
Not only are they making a positive environmental difference, they are also providing employment for the local people. This is lifting people out of poverty as the deforestation (often done out of desperation to survive) has destroyed their livelihoods. Now the forests ARE their livelihoods and it provides them with a decent living situation. This also ensures that they are invested in protecting the trees once they are planted.
Little Difference is definitely a business you should start supporting as their impact and mission is incredible. It’s great to see other businesses striving for the same sustainable goals and I love the one of Sophie and Pete’s mottos is to leave the Earth better than we found it.
