We all see and hear the buzz around the first few weeks of April in anticipation for Earth Day, but what about when the excitement dies down and you don’t have those constant green reminders for Earth Day right in front of you? I wanted to leave this post until after Earth Day so that it didn’t get lost with all the Earth Day buzz that was floating around the net. This way will hopefully think about this post in your day to day while you go about your grocery runs when you have to make decisions about what brand of products to buy.
products are manufactured by the Irving Tissue Corporation. If you’re a Canadian, especially an east coaster you know the name. Irving is based in Dieppe, New Brunswick and all along the highway to New Brunswick from Nova Scotia Irving plants trees to maintain a sustainable wood supply. Over the past 25+ years we drove those highways thousands of times since my grandparents live in New Brunswick and we lived in Nova Scotia. I’ve watched little short seedlings grow to a collection of full grown, fluffy trees and this is only a small portion of what they have replenished. Since Irving’s Planting Program began 50 years ago, they’ve planted over 800 million trees!!
They’re a family company who places huge value on not only quality products, but the environment too. Makes sense…which is why they do their part to take care of the earth and responsibly replenish what they use to make their products with – trees! Majesta Bathroom Tissue was named Product of the Year
by Canadians which speaks very loudly to what Canadians value. Canadians want companies to act responsibly, take an active role in creating green products and lead by example. This is why Majesta launched the Treesponsible movement to plant 1 million trees.
MAJESTA’s Tree Planting Promise: We plant three trees for every one we use to produce MAJESTA products. This means that three seedlings will be planted in the spring and summer of 2011 for every one used to produce Majesta products in 2010. The number of trees that will be planted next spring and summer will be based on the estimated number of trees used to generate the fibre to make Majesta products sold this year. Based on consumer’s purchases of Majesta, we anticipate planting around 800,000 trees in 2011.
When you purchase specially marked Majesta products you’ll find a planting seed card. Majesta is distributing 400,000 seed cards and is counting on us to plant them. As of right now, Majesta is halfway to a million trees and the promotion ends on June 27th.
