You might remember us doing Buy One Get One Tree last October where we planted a tree for every big special carton sold.
Well, it was such a roaring success that we're going to be doing it again. There's quite a few exciting new changes this year and we'll be letting you know all about them in a couple of weeks time.
For now, here's an update on what's been happening with the trees you registered last October.
These are just a few of the 10,000 saplings that have been planted so far. They'll be transferred to the soil as soon as the rains allow but as only a third of saplings grow to maturity, we're planting lots of them in order to hit our 164,020 total.
Over 2000 trees have been planted already. They're mainly the teak and neem variety, which thrive in drought prone areas and are brilliant for providing much needed shade.
The neem tree is quite special. It's known as 'nature's pharmacy' for all of it's medicinal properties. and you can read a bit more about it here.
Over 2,300 farmers have signed up for the scheme so far. By agreeing to look after the trees, they will recieve training in sustainable agriculture and an income for the next 10 years.
To grow more trees and help more people like this, keep an eye out in store for our special cartons and kids multipacks.
