Environmentally-friendly builders’ merchant EnviroBuild is celebrating five years of supporting the Rainforest Trust to help save the planet’s rapidly disappearing forests and wildlife.
The firm is making its annual donation to the non-profit organisation, not only to fund crucial projects but also to offset the carbon footprint of its own production processes since the company was founded in 2015.
The London-based supplier has been donating 10% of its profits to the trust for the past five years. To date, it has helped to protect almost 63 million trees and has supported multiple Rainforest Trust projects.
With more than 60 years’ experience in the construction industry, EnviroBuild aims to provide top-quality products, without the negative environmental impact of traditional materials. Its latest donation will help fund green initiatives across Africa, South America, Central America and Asia, protecting more than 65,000 acres of habitat.
These have included safeguarding the threatened snow leopard in the Himalayas, creating a Bonobo reserve for the endangered great ape in the Congo and helping to reintroduce Spix’s Macaw into the wild after it became extinct, apart from 160 birds surviving in captivity worldwide.
James Brueton, co-founder of EnviroBuild and Trustee at Rainforest Trust, said: “EnviroBuild have supported Rainforest Trust UK since launching five years ago. We think it’s one of the highest positive impacts per pound of donation causes.”
