A Tree Today, A Forest Tomorrow

workagile World Land Trust Plant a Tree programme

As a company that designs and makes furniture, we are responsible so that our actions contribute to a more sustainable society on a local and global level.

In recognition of our commitment to the environment, for every order placed we have donated a tree to the World Land Trust Plant a Tree programme.

By planting trees with World Land Trust (WLT), we are helping to restore forests that have been lost to deforestation. Every donation to the Plant a Tree programme funds the nurturing, planting, and protecting of one tree that will help restore a forest for wildlife.

Habitat loss is one of the greatest threats to wildlife worldwide, and WLT works with its network of in-country conservation partners to protect crucial habitats from threats such as agriculture, road building and mining. However, sometimes the areas where our partners are working have already been cleared, and we must act now to restore the forests so that wildlife can return once more.

Plant a Tree donations enable our partners to replant forests using native species. Each donation to Plant a Tree funds the care of one tree to the point at which it can survive on its own. This includes collecting the seed, nurturing the seedling, preparing the land, planting the tree, tending the sapling, and protecting the new forest. If the tree dies, another tree will be planted in its place.

Every donation to the Plant a Tree programme funds the nurturing, planting, and protecting of one tree that will help restore a forest for wildlife. Each project is unique, and engages and supports local communities in different ways. Some projects, like the restoration of Atlantic Forest in Brazil, provide educational opportunities for schoolchildren, many planting their own trees, while others, such as the Mount Kenya project, collaborated with local farmers.

At Workagile we are dedicated to not only protecting our national woodlands, but ensuring our environment is looked after too. We’re therefore obliged to do what we do in a sustainable manner, which means using our planet’s limited resources with care, and continuously reducing our ecological and climate footprint. 

With the use of wood comes a responsibility, a responsibility of making sure that our products aren’t produced at the expense of the environment. Workagile are certified with both FSC and Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Clarification (PEFC). FSC stands for ‘Forest Stewardship Council’. They are an international non-profit organisation dedicated to promoting responsible forestry. FSC certifies forests all over the world to ensure they meet the highest environmental and social standards.
