ENVIRONMENTALLY RESPONSIBLE

Environment - Jollies commercial furniture

For every order you place with Jollies, we will help plant 5 trees.

Wood is such a common, reliable material we could never imagine it running out. But rapid deforestation and the devastating effects of climate change show us that appreciation and protection of our trees and woodland could not be more important, for the planet and its people. We use wood in some of our products because it offers a hard-wearing and beautiful surface, but we don’t take it for granted.

That’s why Jollies have made a commitment, in partnership with Eden Reforestation projects, to plant at least five trees for every order we receive. Not only is this an undertaking to protect the environment but it provides fair employment for people living in communities which have seen the worst effects of deforestation.

The Problem

Since 1990, more than 150 million hectares, an area twice the size of Texas, have been lost to deforestation.

The world still loses 18 million acres of woodland and forestry every year.

Human-caused CO2 emissions account for about 36 gigatons a year.

12 percent of human-caused carbon dioxide emissions come from deforestation

Agriculture is the biggest cause of deforestation, followed by logging, wildfires, and overgrazing

Why reforestation?

Trees are the best natural method of reversing climate change—as they grow, they absorb carbon dioxide and lock in emissions which would otherwise cause continued ecological damage and further fuel global warming. They literally breathe life into the world—removing CO2 from the atmosphere and returning oxygen through the natural process of photosynthesis.

Reforesting has been recognised as the way to reduce climate change and start to reverse the dangerous trends we have seen.

Working with Eden Reforestation Projects

As a responsible business we are proud to have partnered with Eden reforestation projects. Eden work alongside locals in Kenya, Haiti, Mozambique, Nepal, Indonesia and Madagascar among others to produce, plant, and protect millions of trees every month.

Eden work hand-in-hand with communities to restore not just forests but a way of life—offering a living wage and consistent employment and vital training in the continued care and protection of the forests they are growing. It is not enough to simply plant trees, they need to then be nurtured and protected over many years to ensure that their continued growth will continue to remove carbon from the atmosphere. Eden and their associated projects amount to nearly 1 million new trees planted every single day and are projected to produce, plant and protect 2.25 billion trees by the end of 2023—a quite astonishing feat.

Help nurture the green shoots of recovery

We know our customers are concerned about acting in a more sustainable manner, one that gives back to the world and starts to address the dangers of climate change. Which is why we are delighted to work with Eden to increase tree numbers and reduce carbon emissions.

With every furniture purchase made through Jollies, you can be sure you are doing your bit to help rebuild forests, communities and enable our planet to breath fresh air again.
