This Earth Day, 22nd April, the Philatelic Traders' Society are delighted to announce they are planting another 500 trees for all our members and new member applicants this year. This is our commitment to invest in our planet.
Suzanne Rae, Managing Director, comments:
“As an organisation, we recognise that we have an impact on our planet – whether that be through travel or heating the office or printing and shipping PTS materials. We also recognise the responsibility we have to offset our own environmental impact, and help support and celebrate our 300+ members in their own green initiatives. It is important to question spend and activity to see if we can act smarter for our planet. For example, this year we are using more recycled material for packaging, we’ve swapped our supplier for Stampex stand holder passes to make these biodegradable, we’re replacing printed handbooks with online content, we’re carbon offsetting our travel... and this year, we have once again committed to planting 500 trees working with our partner, Ecologi.”
Ecologi helps fund projects which plant trees for businesses all over the world, helping organisations to become climate positive. Their mission is to reduce 50% of global CO2 emissions by 2040 and responsibly plant billions of trees every year.
By planting these trees, we are making a positive impact, taking personal responsibility and helping to tackle the biggest threat to our generation. Every little counts and it’s working together that will have a positive impact on our future.
We are launching this on Earth Day, a day which has been a growing movement since 1970 and is recognised every year on the 22nd of April. Earth Day raises awareness of global environmental protection and gives the world an opportunity to come together and take action.
On this Earth Day, we are planting 500 trees on behalf of our membership, and this is just one of the ways we are investing in our planet and helping both our present and future members invest in it too.
