Sourcing sustainable products is only the beginning of our commitment to the planet. With every purchase, we plant a tree.
Bursera is proud to be a carbon-negative company by offsetting our limited carbon impact through Carbonfund.org. And as part of our mission, we strive to regenerate the planet’s forests one tree at a time. With every purchase you help us plant a tree sapling! Currently, we are working with Trees for the Future to plant young trees across six countries in Sub-Saharan Africa. They are a leading international development non-profit that has planted over 150 million trees since 1989. Learn more about the program and the impact here.
We started this company with the goal of planting at least one tree a day but we are happy to say that in the past year, 2000 trees have been planted by our customers’ purchases. Our mission as a purpose-over-profit company will remain to do whatever we can to make our planet greener.
Our commitment to the planet does not stop on land. We also pledge to donate 1% of all Bursera Gift Card sales to the Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup to help keep our oceans clean. They are a conservation partnership between Ocean Wise and WWF-Canada and have become one of the largest direct action conservation programs in the country, learn more here or buy a Bursera Gift Card here.
Most Bursera packaging is made from 100% post-consumer materials and is fully recyclable. We will gladly accept and recycle all packaging sent to us. In addition, soy inks are used in our printing process as an environmentally friendly alternative to traditional petroleum inks. As a first step to being a sustainable company, we make sure that our products have a minimal impact on the environment around us.
