Our Habitat Protection Initiative
Whilst we are on a tree planting mission we recognise the importance of protecting habitats as deforestation is one of the biggest threats to the planet. Woods and trees are home to more wildlife than any other landscape, providing home for thousands of different species including our most loved animals. We are working with the Rainforest Trust and supporting various projects across the world with donations that directly protect huge areas of Rainforest. To date we’ve funded the protection of 9,777 acres of Rainforest. Those acres contain approximately 9.8 million trees and store around 1.1 million metric tonnes of CO2 equivalents, helping to safeguard our planet against climate change.
Working with Rainforest Trust
Flooring Superstore is proud to be a Conservation Circle partner of Rainforest Trust UK, a British charity working in partnership with Rainforest Trust in the U.S. to protect the world’s most threatened rainforests and other tropical ecosystems.
Rainforest Trust is one of the world’s most respected and successful conservation charities, and works in partnership with trusted local NGOs and indigenous communities to save the world’s most threatened rainforests and tropical ecosystems. Rainforest Trust has been protecting rainforests for over 30 years and has already placed over 24 million acres of threatened habitat under permanent protection. You can find out more about Rainforest Trust’s uniquely successful approach to conservation by clicking here.
All donations to the charity’s SAVES Challenge conservation projects are doubled by a generous supporter, meaning every pound donated will save twice as much rainforest for endangered species, indigenous communities and the climate. Rainforest Trust UK also guarantees that 100% of all donations are directed towards direct conservation action as all its operating expenses are covered by its board members and Gift Aid.
