By planting and gifting trees this Christmas, we can give each other and the planet the greatest gift of all - a gift that will not only offset CO2, support biodiversity, combat soil erosion and deforestation, but also provide food security, training and income opportunities for smallholder farmers all over the world.

This year has been a wake up call around what is really important.

Friends, family and the planet all feature pretty highly, so it's time to make Christmas more sustainable, from gifting trees to reducing our waste.

If you're keeping it low-key, or want to make it less wasteful, you're not alone.

The findings, conducted by the online tree gifting platform, Treedom, revealed that 60% of Millennials (24-35 year olds) and Gen Z (16-24 year olds) want to make sure this Christmas is an eco-friendly one.

What's more, this trend is being influenced by environmental events such as the Australian wildfires, with 50% of those surveyed saying this had an impact on how they celebrate Christmas.

20 million Brits young and old disclosed that they’ll be encouraging loved ones to shop sustainably this Christmas in a bid to be kinder to the planet and reduce individual impact.

“Our belief is that the value of a gift does not lie in its size, cost or exclusivity, but in the value it represents for people and for the entire planet”

Conscious Christmas

It's not just gifts that are going more sustainable this year. More and more of us are embracing other ways to be eco-friendly this December.

  • 25 million Brits will also be cutting back their consumption by sending friends and relatives online experiences this year
  • 24% of the nation will be opting to gift via online platforms
  • 11% will give a gift from a local or independent brand

Give A Tree As A Gift

Tick off all the sustainable Christmas trends by using Treedom to give the gift of a tree.

Scroll down to find an exclusive pebble discount for any tree planted with Treedom.

It helps the planet - supporting biodiversity, combatting soil erosion, contributing to reforestation, offsetting CO2 and farmers. Treedom works closely with local NGOs and smallholder farmers, providing training on land management techniques.

This means that your tree will contribute to long-term sustainable change for entire swathes of land, as well as providing farmers and their communities with additional food security and income support.

It's green - no shipping or wrapping paper needed! You can gift a tree with Treedom with just a click, via email, text message or DM (and so can be gifted to friends near, far, or quarantined).

There are many species to choose from - each with its own meaning and combination of benefits - like a Coffee tree for your energetic friend. There are also trees for every sign of the zodiac - plant one of these to also receive a Horoscope of the Trees.

It’s a long term gift! The person who receives the tree from you will get the GPS coordinates and a photograph of their tree, plus regular updates about the project it is planted in. One day, the two of you could even go to visit the tree!

Every tree planted before 26 December will be counted on a dedicated landing page, so we can count how many trees are being gifted to not only friends, family members, colleagues, employees, clients and loved ones, but to the planet as a whole.
