Why we support The Native Woodland Trust

Eoin here from Crann I wanted to share a little about why we decided at Crann to support The Native Woodland Trust and why we feel it's important to give back locally to something that means a lot to the team and our customers. 

What we do to help support The Native Woodland Trust by collecting €2 per product sold and donating this in two lump sums each year the first in January and the second in July. 

We are planning on running summer events with the CRANN CLAN and The Native Woodland Trust to help volunteer for a day planting/maintaining the sites they own. More to follow on this soon.

Do I really need sunglasses in Ireland?

The Ultraviolet rays of the sun are deadly little blighters. Not only can they penetrate our skin and make an unrighteous mess of it, they can also fry the cells right off of our poor little eyes, burning their life away. Long-term exposure to UV light can really do some damage, increasing the risk of cataracts, corneal damage, and age-related macular degeneration, ultimately leading to blindness.

 

Nowhere, I repeat, nowhere, is this more of a problem than in the super sunny paradise of fun and adventure, otherwise known as Ireland.
