Byron Bay Gifts Giving Back
At Byron Bay Gifts we're proud to be partners with Seed The Change and doing our part to make the world a better place.
Deforestation is the leading cause of climate change.
If we want to protect the future of our planet, and our own health, tree planting has to be a part of the plan.
We're committed to rebuilding and restoring the environment and every sale we make goes towards planting a tree.
The world loses millions of acres of trees due to deforestation every year. In just a year, one tree has the ability to produce 120 kilograms of oxygen and absorb as much carbon as a car produces driving 41,000 kms.
Every product you buy from us will contribute to planting a tree, allowing you to personally impact the live of those less fortunate.
Planting just one tree and growing it for 30 years will offset the emissions from a drive of about 500 kms, or a flight of about 2,000 kms.
1 tree makes on average 16.67 reams of copy paper or 8,333 sheets.
One and a half acres of forest is cut down every second.
A single mature tree releases enough oxygen back into the atmosphere for two people to live off.
A single tree provides an estimated $7 savings in annual environmental benefits, including energy conservation and reduced pollution.
Just one tree can store 1,250 kilograms of carbon. That's the equivalent of offsetting a return flight from Los Angeles to London.
Just 16 trees can offset the annual carbon emissions of an average Australian household over its 30 year life.
70% of the worlds plants and animals live in forests and are losing their habitats to deforestation.
