Edit Office plays its part in tackling climate change.
We are an environmentally aware company that is proactive in its approach to safeguarding the environment and in playing its part in tackling climate change through our Plant-A-Tree (PAT) initiative.
Quite simply, for every desk we sell, we will plant a tree.
Edit Office Tackles Climate Change
We have an exciting partnership with the Global Climate Institute, where we plant a tree in Tanzania for every desk sold.
Edit Office will fund the planting of a tree for every desk you buy.
These trees will be planted in Tanzania and distributed to individuals, families and groups, like churches, schools and clinics. A variety of tree species are distributed to provide fruit, fencing, nitrogen fixing, firewood, animal feed and medicine.
The deforestation rate in Tanzania is amongst the highest in East Africa. For a country where the forests typically help fuel the national economy, this degradation has a dramatic impact on rural communities, causing major food insecurity. Luckily, tree planting proves to be one of the most versatile and cost effective means to improve the quality of life for people living in impoverished areas, as the trees will provide decades of food, medicine, shade, firewood, carbon fixation, environmental enhancements, wildlife habitat and benefit the global climate.
A word about our partner
Experienced agro forestry trainers and trained workers are hired to grow tree seedlings in the nursery. These employees develop the nursery, train other families in the program, as well as the community at large, on how to plant and take care of the trees. They distribute seedlings once the holes have been prepared for planting and oversee the maintenance and care of the trees. Trees are distributed to individuals, families and groups, like churches, schools and clinics. A variety of species are distributed to provide fruit, fencing, nitrogen fixing, firewood, animal feed and medicine.
Tree distribution goes hand in hand with training on how to plant and how to protect them for the long term. Up to date, a total of 2500 households and 130 schools have received training and support to plant trees on homesteads, farms and school grounds. Finally, there are many thousands of local residents in Rorya and Tarime districts that benefit from the environmental enrichment that these trees provide.
