Verissima is changing. Watch this space!

One of the major issues I have with running my business is being acutely aware of the impact we as individuals have on the planet, let alone the impact of a business. We do what we can to tread lightly but I’m not perfect and it’s darn hard to be, especially when you are a product based business who requires packaging, printing, postage (more packaging) etc.

When the devastating fires impacted Australia I felt absolutely useless and once again the environment was forefront in my mind along with lives lost and the impact of every individual involved.

I wanted to help but how?

I discovered one tree planted and decided as a business we would partner with them. We will be planting trees in Australia to begin with, to assist with the reforestation efforts on our east coast.

Trees clean our air and water, create habitats for biodiversity, contribute to our health and wellbeing, and create jobs for social impact. We are absolutely honored to have reforestation through One Tree Planted as an integral part of our business.

For every product you purchase, we plant a tree, it’s that easy. 

I’ll be sharing our achievements on our Social Media pages, so if you haven’t already, be sure to start following us on Instagram or on Facebook.

I’ll be flashing those tree planting certificates everywhere. It also gives you a sense of accomplishment too, knowing that your dollar is going towards rebuilding habitat.

With the alarming rates at which our forests are being cleared and burned to be used for activities such as cattle grazing, palm oil, monoculture farming, ever expanding roads, I knew that reforestation is something I want to support.
