Gripsure Plant Trees for Team Day

As a result of Covid-19, the Gripsure team day was a little different this year, but we didn't let it stop us! From our homes, scattered across the UK and France, we each completed a 5KM walk/run as part of a virtual race, organised by Earth Runs, to plant trees.
Earth Runs is an organisation based on two passions; promoting exercise as a positive action for the body and mind, and the environment. They have combined the two and now arrange virtual races for people to enter from anywhere in the world! Each completed race earns a number of trees which they plant in areas depleted by deforestation in a bid to reverse this damage and recreating habitats for thousands of species. To date they have planted over 3000 trees.

We're proud to share that as a team we achieved:

Earth Runs Medals

 

We were over the moon to receive these sustainable medals for our efforts, which are plastic-free, fully biodegradable and packed full of wildflower seeds, making it a bee-friendly addition to the garden.

 

Tree Sapling In Hands

 

Since completing the virtual race, we've taken a moment to think about how we could continue to have a positive impact on the environment on a more regular basis. As we are in the business of "wood" we've decided what better way is there to thank our customers and give something back than by planting even more trees?! We're excited to announce that we will be planting a tree for every online order from January 1st 2021.

 
1 online order  =  1 tree planted

 

Keep your eyes peeled for more details coming soon!
