KODA has collaborated with One Tree Planted to support reforestation
“One for One” Initiative Dedicated To Planting Trees Around The World
KODA is a local independent furniture and design business and we would like to announce a partnership with One Tree Planted. For every custom piece of furniture we produce, KODA will plant one tree, with the aim to plant trees for landscape restoration in 2022.
“Working with One Tree Planted is a great fit for KODA,” said Koda Studios Creative Director Katherine Mathew. “Sustainability is at the core of our business model, through sustainable design and material selection, it’s great to have another way to give back and help the environment.”
Koda Studios is based in Hull and specialise in custom handmade furniture, lighting and design objects. Since inception we have balanced purpose and profit with a focus on sustainably designed furniture that provides function, form and longevity. Each piece is carefully designed and hand crafted with the aim to combat fast furniture and its negative impact on the environment. This is why we have partnered with One Tree Planted to help give back a part of what we take.
The objectives of this new partnership include:
- Supporting global reforestation efforts
- Empowering consumers with sustainable actions
- Raising awareness about the importance of ecosystem restoration
Planting trees is one of the best ways to combat the damaging effects from the built environment through industry. Trees help clean the air we breathe, filter the water we drink, and provide habitat to over 80 percent of the world’s terrestrial biodiversity. Trees also provide tremendous social impacts by providing jobs to over 1.6 billion people, empowering women in underdeveloped nations, and supporting communities devastated by environmental damage.
The partnership is designed to be simple for customers to get involved in global reforestation. For every handmade item produced by KODA, the company will donate to One Tree Planted to plant one tree. The trees are planted by local partner organisations and community volunteers in areas where there has been deforestation.
