Here at Sophia. we are all about making our business as ethical and sustainable as possible. To offset our emissions and travel footprint from posting our products to our wonderful customers, we’ve decided to plant trees to make our Earth that little bit cleaner and greener.
Did you know that one tree can offset as much as 22 kilograms of carbon dioxide per year and can sequester one tonne of carbon dioxide by the time it is 40 years old? We believe this is the perfect solution to offset emissions because naturally, these trees are providing us with precious oxygen over and over again.
Last week, eleven Lilly Pilly trees were planted in Brisbane in support of our initiative. Lilly Pillys (also known as Acmena Smithii) are native to Australia, specifically to Queensland. The ripe fruits can be eaten and the trees themselves make the perfect addition to any garden.
We can't wait to see these beautiful trees flourish and provide our environment with the boost it needs. This initiative will continue as more and more shipments are made and soon we hope to have a whole forest of native trees that will benefit our environment and community.
As always, we are open to suggestions so if you can think of any other ethical or sustainable changes that we can make to our business, please let us know! Thank you for purchasing items thoughtfully and for helping to make a difference! Love and happiness, Sophia.
