Together with Trees for the Future we donate 3 trees for every watch sold with the so-called Forest Garden Program. We do this to compensate for our wood usage and carbon footprint but also to support local communities in Senegal, Cameroon, Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda. The Forest Garden Program is a proven successful approach. By planting specific types of trees in a systematic manner over a four year period, families can positively change their lives forever.
When it comes to creating products made from wood, research points to the significant advantage that wood has over comparable materials. Carbon emission, effect on water quality and overall environmental impact when measured over the complete life cycle of the structural material is one of the examples. The energy that is needed for creating wooden ‘shapes’ is lower than that of the same shape in steel, meaning that making a WoodWatch is way less energy intensive than a comparable watch made of metal and steel.
We are very proud that we are the first partner of Trees for All to compensate the carbon footprint of our parcel deliveries on an international level. We do this by donating trees in the Smart Forests in Bolivia for every international WoodWatch parcel delivery.
If you want to support our planet, even more, you have the opportunity to donate one tree for an additional fee of 6.25 euro in the shopping cart while ordering your watch. With this donation, you support the Smart Forest in Bolivia together with Trees for All.
