Contribute to reforestation in Pakistan

An especially nice thing about ordering from Productpine is that - besides finding your new favourites for your home - you can choose a project you can invest in for free with your purchase. We take care of these costs, which consist of 1.5% of your total order value. In other words: 1.5% of our total turnover.

You choose a project from 3 different themes when you checkout your order. Simply put: wood, waste processing and biocoal. But there are many nuances here that we are happy to tell you about. Every year, together with our climate consultant South Pole, we choose our project portfolio and retain or change the projects based on the impact we can make with our financial support.

Starring this time the Delta Blue Carbon in Pakistan.

In the southeast of Pakistan is located the Indus River Delta. An ecological region created by being the area where the Indus River empties into the Arabian Sea. It is a delta region consisting of a complex system of deep and shallow swamps, streams and is home to one of the world's largest areas of mangroves in an arid climate. These mangroves (trees that grow from the water out to the surface) play a vital role in the region's ecosystems. For example, they contribute to the lives of the animals in the area, including one of the few freshwater dolphin species left on earth. However, the life of the mangroves is threatened by logging and less individual river flows. In fact, more than 100,000 hectares of land have been destroyed in recent years.

If you choose the Delta Blue Carbon project in Pakistan, you will be contributing both to the reconstruction of this vast natural area and to the creation of jobs for local communities. By the end of 2020, 75,000 hectares of mangrove forest had already been planted in the delta, with the aim of continuing at the same pace and with the same success. Members of local communities will be trained and appointed as mangrove managers, with women being given priority. The frequent planting of the mangroves will prevent coastal erosion and create a buffer against negative climate impacts such as storms and sea level rise.
