FIZFIT & ONE TREE PLANTED
Trees help clean the air we breathe, filter the water we drink, and provide habitat to over 80% of the world's terrestrial biodiversity.
Forests provide jobs to over 1.6 billion people, absorb harmful carbon from the atmosphere, and are key ingredients in 25% of all medicines. Have you ever taken an Aspirin? It comes from the bark of a tree! - One Tree Planted
OUR COMMITMENT - ONE TREE FOR EVERY €100
As part of Fizfit’s commitment to sustainability and in order to counteract climate change we are proud to partner with One Tree Planted to do our bit to help to get trees in the ground. Along with you our customers Fizfit are helping to finance their planting. Fizfit will be voluntarily reinvesting €1 for every €100 we receive in sales revenue in tree planting projects with One Tree Planted. €1 equates to one tree being planted. We will be sharing our progress and how many trees we have got in the ground with the Fizfit community on our website and social channels.
