As Westcoasters, people who work with paper and wood, and simply citizens of a warming world, trees are important to us! When setting up Skog, we talked about how we could both ensure that our company limits its impact on the environment as much as possible and also about how we could go one step further by actually contributing to the regeneration of our environment.
To that end, we use FSC-certified products wherever possible, are mindful of limiting physical proofs, and work as locally as possible as much as we can.
We've also made a commitment to pay for the planting of one tree for EVERY product sold* across all of our product lines. So if you order 150 wedding invitations, that's 150 trees planted. Your single postcard order also plants its very own tree. Together we can plant thousands of trees and make a noticeable impact on the environment around us!
We've chosen to use The Nature Conservancy, a registered 501(c)3 organization, as the vehicle for our donation. They have a Plant A Billion Trees campaign, which is working on reforestation efforts in China, the US, and Brazil. As we plant trees together, we'll keep a running tally here, so check back and see how our fight against de-forestation is going!
*every invite, menu, postcard, and journal plants a tree. Small items such as business cards and place settings or RSVP cards work on a 10:1 model. We'll be transparent with every listing as to what the ratio of product to tree is.
