Working towards a sustainable future

We believe in making socially responsible profits through ethical choices and voluntary contributions to sustainable projects as we see this as casting a vote for the kind of world we want to live in. We strive to always be eco-aware and search for solutions to reduce our impact on the environment in any way possible. 

Our current sustainable project:
Be safe in knowledge that with every purchase on Kraft Space Marketplace you will be giving that little bit back.
WITH 5% of ALL PROFITS FROM SALES donated to The Woodland Trust. This will go towards planting more trees across the UK. Below is some more information to why this is more important than ever.

The following information has been taken from THE WOODLAND TRUST WEBSITE

Global warming is happening at a faster rate than ever. Our polar ice caps are melting and our forests are burning.
We’re in a climate emergency and it’s threatening our planet. According to experts, we’re on track for an increase of between 3°C and 4°C by 2100. And these are only global average temperatures. At the poles and over land (where people live), the increase may be higher – possibly even double.

We need to act fast. There will be devastating consequences as temperatures soar. Changes will be irreversible as ecosystems collapse. Our planet will be unrecognisable.

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has warned that global temperatures need to be kept from rising by more than 1.5°C. We’ve already passed 1°C. We need to act now. The UK has pledged to be carbon neutral by 2050, but how can we achieve it?

We need to seriously reduce our emissions, and find a way of reducing the damage already done. Technology is being explored to remove CO2– the biggest culprit – from the atmosphere, but they are expensive and complex.

There is a simpler solution – and it’s our most powerful weapon in the fight against climate change: trees.

Our most powerful weapon: trees

Trees are the ultimate carbon capture and storage machines. Like great carbon sinks, woods and forests absorb atmospheric carbon and lock it up for centuries. They do this through photosynthesis.

The entire woodland ecosystem plays a huge role in locking up carbon, including the living wood, roots, leaves, deadwood, surrounding soils and its associated vegetation. And trees do more than just capture carbon. They also fight the cruel effects of a changing climate. They can help:

  • Prevent flooding
  • Reduce city temperatures
  • Reduce pollution
  • Keep soil nutrient-rich
