As the next step in our sustainability journey, Lover’s Tempo has partnered with Ecodrive to go climate positive on every order’s shipping emissions by planting 1 tree with every purchase. Trees have a natural ability to capture and store carbon dioxide, making them important assets in the fight against climate change.
Sustainability is at the heart of everything we do at Lover’s Tempo; we believe in doing our part to create a brighter future and make our planet a better place. We keep the earth in mind throughout our entire process, from our sustainable Demi-Fine range (using recycled materials), to the vendors we partner with. We’re excited to take our sustainability to the next level by planting trees with Ecodrive!
Planting the seed
Ecodrive plants mangrove trees on protected land in Madagascar. Mangroves can capture and store more carbon than almost any other tree on the planet. Each tree can sequester about 680 pounds of carbon in its lifetime.
Mangroves also create habitat for hundreds of animal species, including those that are endangered or only exist in Madagascar. They also protect shorelines from erosion and storm surges, keeping ecosystems and the people who live there safe. As mangroves take in water they filter out any pollutants before releasing water vapor back into the air. When you place an order at our store you will receive the same high-quality products you’ve come to expect, but with the added bonus of having a tree with amazing ecological benefits planted for you!
In addition to this initiative's ecological benefits, it also alleviates poverty in the nearby community by employing local villagers to plant and manage the trees. For every 100 trees planted, one full work day is created for a villager in need. We are focusing our brand’s goals around the United Nations 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDG), which “recognize that ending poverty and other deprivations must go hand-in-hand with strategies that improve health and education, reduce inequality, and spur economic growth – all while tackling climate change and working to preserve our oceans and forests." We believe that employing local villagers to plant trees – with the help of our customers – enables us to tie many of these strategies together to have the greatest impact.
Over time we have integrated various sustainable practices into our operations for the benefit of people and the planet. We are always looking for ways to reduce our carbon footprint, we prioritize partnerships with vendors that utilize renewable energy, and most of our product packaging and shipping materials are made from recycled materials. Planting trees with Ecodrive is another piece of the sustainability puzzle for Lover’s Tempo.
We look forward to discovering the positive impact we can make by planting trees with the help of our wonderful customers and our new friends at Ecodrive.
