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.

Crann our way of helping

Crann our way of helping

"I know we all have been reading about the bushfires in Australia at the minute and honestly, it really is hard to actually imagine until you see the flames or see the aftermath. Currently, I'm here in Australia and you can see/feel/hear the pain and hurt it causes to people, wildlife and the natural beauty Australia has to offer.

I think it's only fair as a sustainably focused brand we do anything we can do to help. It might only be a little but we hope it goes a long way."
