With every bottle garden sold, we plant a tree
We at GREENERY living fundamentally stand by nature for sustainability as well as social and ecological compatibility. But we want to do more. And above all, we want to get you on board! Quite simply because we know that climate change leaves you just as indifferent as it does us. That's why we have a cooperation with Ecologi started, about which we would like to tell you a little more at this point.
What exactly is Ecolog and what do they do?
Ecologi is a Bristol-based environmental collective that helps people and businesses tackle the global climate catastrophe by, among other things, funding reforestation.
In addition, is Ecologi but also active in other important environmental projects around the world, such as the development of solar and wind energy in India and Turkey, the protection of the Amazon region in Peru or the repair of water boreholes in Malawi.
A few more numbers to clarify: Just one year after it was founded, the young environmental protection organization already has over 2,000,000 Mangrove trees in Madagascar planted. In addition, another 126,000 pieces for a Reforestation campaign in Kijabe, Kenya. But there are also planting projects that Ecolog is realizing in the USA, Australia and Scotland.
What your new bottle garden has to do with trees
Quite simply: by working with Ecologi we can donate a tree for every bottle garden sold. So if you treat yourself to a bottle garden from us, you also ensure that a new tree is planted. Are bottle gardens now saving the climate? No of course not. But the point is that we use and support sensible measures that are available to us. In any case, we think the tree project and also the many other projects of Ecolog are pretty great and we are happy that we can contribute to it together with you.
Why trees are so important for our climate

Trees are super-efficient, natural and cheap climate regulators. They clean the air by absorbing CO2 and other greenhouse gases and binding them in the long term. Especially in the tropics, trees can absorb a particularly large amount of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and thus relieve the climate. At the same time, however, they also produce large amounts of oxygen, regulate precipitation and are involved in cloud formation - which in turn contributes to the cooling of the earth. So we can never have enough of trees!
Ecolog works very transparently so that you can see at any time how the GREENERY living tree nursery is growing and thriving. Would you like to know how many trees have already been planted in our name? here you can see our forest "live".
PS: If you would like to support the tree project independently of us, you are welcome to do so. Ecolog also offers memberships for individuals or families.
