Leeds retailer partners with the Rainforest Trust as part of eco goals

A Leeds based eco-retailer, has announced it has saved 1,563 acres of threatened tropical rainforest and habitats through its partnership with the Rainforest Trust.

Ecovibe, which sells eco-alternatives to everyday essentials, introduced the partnership in November 2020 and has since donated a percentage of every £1 spent on site to the environmental charity, which in turn saves 6 sq m of rainforest each time.

Stacey Skidmore, managing director of Ecovibe, said: ’We chose to partner with the Rainforest Trust as they get to the heart of the issue. Their work protects endangered wildlife and threatened tropical forests, working directly with conservationists and local communities to see real results.

“Deforestation rates are not slowing down and so we plan to continue this partnership for the foreseeable future.

“Having a positive impact on our planet is at the heart of our brand and our collections help people make positive changes to their everyday lives.”

The eco retailer is already seeking additional future partnerships with environmental charities, specifically those with a focus on cleaning oceans and combatting plastic pollution.

The past five years has seen many businesses beginning to incorporate eco goals into their strategies in response to the climates’ deterioration and consumer behaviours.

The Rainforest Trust state that the donations from Ecovibe have enabled them to place threatened rainforests and tropical habitats under permanent protection.
