CØRKLESS is proud to join forces with One Tree Planted, an organization whose mission is to make it simple for individuals and businesses to give back to the environment. Our goal is to help recover endangered forest ecosystems and protect fresh water supply, so we can keep exploring the world for years to come.
Here at CØRKLESS, we want to ensure that our priorities as a company align with the organizations we support. With current conversations about climate change, deforestation, and the finite supply of natural resources dominating the airwaves, we felt it necessary to take action on this issue that is paramount to us all.
Considering CØRKLESS’ mission is to discover the undiscovered, we couldn’t have picked a more suitable collaborator to bring attention and care to an issue that has reached unparalleled heights. Curious on the organization’s progress? In 2018, One Tree Planted was able to get roughly 1.3 million trees into the ground. Furthermore, as part of their process, One Tree Planted pools donations for each project to disperse funds to reforestation partners after a vetting process that ensures a tree survival rate of 80-90% is maintained.
Depending on the project, partners choose the best tree species to plant and work with local communities to get them in the ground. Planting typically happens in the rainy season when the soil is wet and provides optimal conditions for tree survival. Once all the trees are in the ground, a report is sent out highlighting the impact of your trees with photos to document the progress of our input.
With environmental concerns reaching heights unseen in human history, we’ve set out to play our part – for each case of CØRKLESS sold, we will donate $.20 to One Tree Planted, with a goal to plant 10,500 trees in 2020. Stay up to date on our mission by following @GoCorkless on social media.
Let’s keep it simple. Drink more wine. Plant More Trees.
