Love wood, plant trees. Greenpop support for Houdt smart phone and tablet covers.
Posted: Jan 27 2015
Lying on the grass looking up at a tree, who hasn’t been mesmerised by whispering leaves that sway to and fro, letting in patches of sky and soft pools of sunlight? Trees green our world, shelter us, feed us and clean our air. Imagine a world without them?
As the proud owner of a beautifully crafted Houdt smart phone or tablet cover, you’ll be happy to know that by supporting good design, you’re also supporting trees.
At Houdt, we love wood so much that we want to create more of it. That’s why we plant a new tree through the Greenpop Tree Planting Programme. We have planted hundreds of trees, thanks to lovely people like you.
So you may be wondering why we decided to go with Greenpop as our tree planting partner. Simply put, Greenpop inspires us with their mission to create a culture of planting and replacing trees in Southern Africa. They plant indigenous trees in deforested areas and in under-greened schools, crèches and community centres, where some of the trees supply fruit to those who don’t always have food on their table. We think that’s pretty neat.
We heard some scary stats the other day. According to a UN study, the world has lost 80% of its original forests in the past decade. In just ten years! That’s frightening. If you and I don’t do something about it, who will?
