The number of trees already planted
In order to respect values, we wanted to do a bit for the environment. Spring 2019 marked a big step in our challenge, and it is largely thanks to you.
Firstly, we chose a local printing company, with inspiring values. Papers are labelled eco-responsible, inks are nontoxic and solvent-free, its consumption of electricity is solar and wind generated (more)
Secondly, we sought to link our product to a positive move for the planet. From now on and thanks to our collaboration with Graine de Vie, a non-profit organisation specialised in reforestation, each month, when your newspaper is sent, a tree is planted (and this, without a change in the subscription costs 😊)
Graine de Vie decided, years ago, to address environmental issues by acting in Madagascar. A country where forests have been disappearing over the years but where the rainfall still allows a large-scale reforestation.
We really like this project for its environmental goals but also for its social aspects. For examples, Graine de Vie works with local non-profit organisation in order to raise awareness among the inhabitants while some trees species produce consumable resources for the population.
If you want to know more about the association, its operation and ambitions: Graine de Vie
However, we are obviously aware that this challenge will never end and that we will have to continually question it according to environmental issues and our business needs.
