As a brand, we hope that our products are installed and loved with the same amount of care and attention that it takes to create them. We work with highly skilled artisans to make products that are more than something to change with the seasons. It’s a philosophy that feeds into another deep belief of ours – the importance of environmental sustainability and conscious consumption.
So we looked for a way that we could contribute positively and joined One Tree Planted in February 2020.
What is One Tree Planted?
For every order made with Marz Designs, we give a dollar towards the program, which helps plant one tree. Every tree makes a positive impact on nature, wildlife, and people. One Tree Planted is an environmental non-profit organisation focused on global reforestation, planting trees to help build communities after natural disasters and deforestation. Part of why we chose One Tree Planted is the fact that they invest in rebuilding after natural disasters. The widespread devastation of the Australian Black Summer fires left an indelible mark on us and showed just how important it is to look after the environment for future generations.
Trees clean our air and water, create habitats for biodiversity, contribute to our health and wellbeing and create jobs for social impact. We’re honoured to build reforestation through this partnership as an integral part of our business model. In a single year, One Tree Planted sequestered 28,312 metric tonnes of CO2.
On a sustainability mission
We care deeply about the planet and creating a business that gives back to nature, so this is just our first initiative in building a more sustainable brand. We have worked hard to ensure there is no plastic used in our packaging and also worked closely with our suppliers to reduce the amount of plastic waste in our supply chain. But there’s always more to be done and we’re committed to continuing to find ways to contribute positively to the world we live in.
