We've upped our positive environmental impacts 💛
We have recently partnered with One Tribe Gloabl - a certified B Corp to protect endangered rainforests and the indigenous tribes and biodiversity that call them home.
For every newsletter sign-up, we donate to One Tribe to protect 5 trees 🌳🌴
How does it work?
Every month One Tribe collects our donations based on our new subscriber number. One Tribe then makes payments to various rainforest charities which distribute the funds to on-the-ground projects to save and continually protect the land. All our donations are logged, we can see which projects our donations are helping to fund, and our climate impact stats are updated monthly.
We send one thoughtful monthly issue to our email community so this feels like the perfect way to celebrate someone joining us on the journey of all things rho.

Why protect trees not plant new ones?
Protecting existing trees is more powerful than planting new ones in terms of in terms of carbon absorbed.

We are so excited about this partnership!
Here's the three ways One Tribe's rainforest protection partners protect rainforest in their own words..to read in more detail exactly how they work click here
Indigenous people often live on land their ancestral land but have no legal rights to it. This leaves the land at risk from logging, mining, oil and gas extraction and agriculture. Creating land titles for indigenous people in these areas gives them the legal rights to live on their land, so that they can continue living there in a sustainable way, and protecting them, and the plants and animals there from these threats.
Our partners also protect rainforest through the creation of National Parks or other officially recognised protection areas. Scientific research data is used to demonstrate the value of an area based on the plants and animals that live there, particularly when those animals are endangered. It is a tried and tested method to protect large areas of rainforest and the species that live there.
This is by far the most expensive way to protect rainforest and so is used generally for smaller areas of rainforest that have critically endangered species that would go extinct if the land was not purchased and protected. Once the land is purchased the land is monitored and managed to ensure its protection long term.
