Here at Bean & Fox, we thought we’d do something a little different to the usual black Friday noise...
As a children’s lifestyle store, we’re passionate about protecting the environment so that we have a habitable planet to pass on to the next generation. There’s no doubt that we’re in the midst of a climate emergency and it is the actions we take now that will determine our future. We all know the urgency of the situation but it’s hard to know what we can do as individuals to help. As a small, independently run business, we’re certainly not perfect and are always looking at ways we can improve and minimise the impact that running our business has on the planet. We know that our impact is small in the grand scheme of things. That’s why we believe that if we all make small changes though our purchasing choices, collectively we can make a big difference.
That’s why this Black Friday we’re doing things a little differently. For every sale we make, we’re committing to the simple act of planting a tree to say a big thank you to our lovely customers. Our trees are one of the most powerful tools we have to combat the climate emergency and secure our planet’s recovery. Trees lock in water, offer protection from flooding, protect biodiversity and lock away carbon. Protecting and re-cultivating our trees is one of the many actionable things we can do today to build back our rich habitats and reverse the damage caused by our carbon emissions.
We dream of a future where the planet friendly alternative is a no-brainer for all parents and believe that together, we can build a more sustainable future for our children and the generations to come. Will you join us?
