Planting Hope: Our New Partnership with Integrity Reforestation Promises a Greener Future
We're thrilled to share the exciting news of our recent partnership with Integrity Reforestation, a visionary Canadian company dedicated to the restoration of deforested, and degraded lands. As part of our commitment to a greener planet, we will be planting one new tree for every gift set sold, contributing to Integrity's mission of creating a world where thriving forests symbolize hope, and resilience.
Founded by Matt McKernan, Integrity Reforestation envisions a future whereby communities and ecosystems flourish sustainably, while providing future generations the gift of basking in the beauty, and the benefits of trees. Guided by the tenets of integrity, meaningful relationships and fair value, the company operates primarily in Ontario, Canada, while extending its support to global planting partners in Greece, Kenya, Uganda, Nigeria, and Costa Rica.
Sustainable Forestry for Environmental, and Community Well-being
For the past 15 years, Matt has played a pivotal role in reforestation operations across Canada, planting over 200 million trees and mentoring thousands of like-minded tree planters. Integrity Reforestation prioritizes sustainable forestry practices that not only benefit the environment, but also support the livelihoods of local communities and economies. Matt's extensive experience has allowed him to develop a profound understanding of various factors, including ground conditions, logistics, tree care, and production considerations.
Creating Conditions for Thriving Communities
Integrity Reforestation emphasizes the importance of creating the right conditions in which their workers and community members have the capacity to thrive. This involves ensuring fair compensation for tree planters, providing them with safe and reliable equipment, and prioritizing health and safety in all operations. The company's commitment to education on laws and regulations, hazard identification, and a robust health and safety regime sets a standard for the industry. They've created a scalable model that encourages collaboration and co-creation with organizations sharing similar values.
Unity in Diversity: The Heart of Integrity Reforestation
Comprising individuals from diverse walks of life, Integrity's pillars of friendship, respect, healthy competition, and effective communication form the foundation of their community. By fostering a culture of fun and camaraderie, the company further strengthens those bonds, creating a resilient community focused on individual, as well as collective growth. Their transformative approach aims to push limits, and make a positive impact on both the environment, and the lives of their planting staff.
In aligning with Integrity Reforestation, Simply Natural Canada further broadens our own efforts beyond the offer of eco-friendly products and gifts; we're also contributing to a transformative mission of growth, sustainability, and positive change.
