You Buy, We Plant

For every item you purchase from our store, we will plant a tree to help reforest our planet.

We are committed to plant a tree for every purchased item from our shop so please help us to reforest.

One olive tree can produce 3.5 letters of oil annually, which is enough to make up to 30 Olivant® Aleppo soap bars. If you consume about 30 bars of our Aleppo soap over the whole year, you are eventually helping an Olive farmer to maintain one olive tree for the whole year. Buying an olive oil based soap makes you a direct contributor to maintain the nature and save environment. In addition, saving the environment from the plastic bottles of conventional toiletries is an extra benefit of using Olivant® soap bars.

Furthermore, we have collaborated with Ripple Africa® among other organisations to plant trees on our behalf in Malawi.

Here are some reasons why we are planting in Malawi:

Combatting Deforestation: Malawi has been facing deforestation at an alarming rate, leading to loss of biodiversity, soil erosion, and reduced water resources. By participating in tree planting projects, you can help counteract deforestation and contribute to the restoration of vital ecosystems.

Erosion Control: Malawi faces soil erosion problems due to deforestation and unsustainable land-use practices. Trees help prevent soil erosion by stabilizing the soil with their roots, reducing the risk of landslides and loss of fertile topsoil.

Climate Change Mitigation: Trees absorb carbon dioxide (CO2) from the atmosphere and store it as biomass. This helps mitigate climate change by reducing the concentration of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere, which is particularly important in the face of global warming and its potential impact on Malawi’s agriculture and water resources.

Water Resource Management: Trees play a crucial role in maintaining water resources. Their roots help in water infiltration and aquifer recharge, ensuring a more stable water supply. They also regulate water flow in rivers and streams, reducing the risk of floods during heavy rains and ensuring a steady flow during dry periods.

Biodiversity Conservation: Trees provide habitats for various wildlife species, including birds, insects, and mammals. Malawi’s unique biodiversity can benefit from reforestation efforts, helping protect endangered and endemic species.

Improved Air Quality: Trees absorb air pollutants and release oxygen, which improves air quality and contributes to better public health. In urban areas like Lilongwe and Blantyre, trees can help combat air pollution.

Sustainable Fuelwood: Malawi’s population relies heavily on biomass (wood and charcoal) for cooking and heating. Planting trees for sustainable harvesting can alleviate pressure on forests and ensure a reliable source of fuel for rural communities.

Economic Benefits: Reforestation and afforestation projects can create employment opportunities in rural areas. Timber and non-timber forest products like fruits, nuts, and medicinal plants can be a source of income for local communities.

In summary, planting trees in Malawi can help address a range of environmental, social, and economic challenges while contributing to the country’s long-term sustainability and resilience in the face of climate change. These efforts are essential for improving the overall quality of life for Malawians and conserving the country’s natural resources

We work with farmers and communities who are planting millions of trees each year, and these provide a sustainable source of timber and firewood for local people.
