“Here at Kenyon Group,” exclaims managing director Ian Kenyon, “we are very conscious about our environmental impact and climate change is quite rightly a hot topic, especially with the floods that have recently hit many parts of the UK.  

“We have taken a pledge that by the end of 2020 we will have planted 1000 trees here in the UK as a minimum, and we are looking to our valued customers, to help us achieve this.  Planting trees is one of the easiest and most sustainable ways that the environment can be positively helped and what could be more satisfying than planting a tree and helping to fight climate change?

 “To this end, we have teamed up with Trees For Life, the multiple award-winning conservation charity – and never has the proverb ‘great oaks from little acorns grow’ been truer.”

Kenyon Group has launched its Plant a Tree pledge – and its customers can join in too

ight from the design and inspiration behind the company’s logo representing growth, new beginnings and a love for wild places, Trees For Life works in three key ways:

  • Saving the forest – planting native trees, nurturing seedlings, helping propagation and encouraging forest regeneration
  • Giving a helping hand to wildlife – reintroducing missing species, such as red squirrel, to the wild forest
  • Inspiring people of all ages and abilities to be involved in rewilding to improve their wellbeing and develop new skills.

 “From 1st December 2019 and the countdown to Christmas into 2020, we are launching our Plant a Tree pledge,” explains Ian, “whereby we will be planting trees based on the value of our customers’ orders and our customers can opt to plant trees alongside us. We will have our own grove so that everyone can see how we are rising to our challenge.

“Not only do thousands of wildlife species depend on trees for food and shelter, but trees also have a positive impact on us humans – they improve our mood and help to reduce anxiety and depression. What could be more rewarding than protecting the environment, caring for and safeguarding the earth for future generations, helping to stop climate change, encouraging wildlife and improving our own wellbeing, all in the course of normal day to day business?  So help us plant more trees!

“With the help of our customers we will be making a lasting impact on our country’s landscape and the earth on which we all live.”
