At Grizzly Guardian we are always looking for ways to better relate to our customers, manage our environmental impact and monitor our sustainability. That is why we are delighted to announce we are working in partnership with Trees for Cities, with every Grizzly Guardian purchase we will pledge a donation to them, to help plant more trees in cities and help to grow our ecosystem around the world.
About Trees for Cities
Who we are
Trees for Cities is the only charity working on an international scale to create greener cities. Since 1993, we have engaged over 70,000 people to plant over 600,000 urban trees in parks, streets, schools and housing estates across the UK, as well as internationally, revitalising these areas and improving the lives of the people who live in them. We strengthen communities through volunteering opportunities and inspire children to grow and eat good food and to connect with nature.
What we do and why we do it
We focus on planting trees and greening community spaces where the social and environmental impact on local people is greatest. In London this might mean planting trees to clean the air or transforming unused community spaces into vibrant green areas, making our communities happier and healthier places to live, whilst in Nairobi it’s planting fruit trees for food and sustainable livelihoods.
Planting trees since 1993
Trees for Cities started life in 1993 as Trees for London, when a group of young Londoners recognised the need for more trees in the capital. Our first projects included planting street trees on Westminster Bridge Road and a large-scale community project with structural landscaping and tree planting on Bemerton Park Estate in Islington.
In 2003, we changed our name to Trees for Cities and began delivering projects outside London, working in partnership with organisations and groups across the UK and internationally with 773,832 trees planted to date (2018).
