At Your Nature we pride ourselves on having a positive influence on the planet and this is why we never use any type of single use plastic and only use recyclable and sustainable materials.
In line with these values from the 1st of April 2022 we have decided to donate 10 pence from every product sold to planting trees worldwide.
We absolutely love nature so the best way to express this is to help plant more trees around the world so we can benefit from all of these amazing qualities.
- Positive impact on mental health and wellbeing : It’s not all about the physical environment; trees also help us with our ability to cope mentally with life in an artificial urban environment.
- Being around nature, specifically trees, has been shown to reduce the levels of cortisol in our brains. This is otherwise known as the stress hormone, and lowering it can help to reduce the symptoms of anxiety and stress. We are also more likely to leave our homes, go outside and exercise if there are lovely, welcoming trees and green spaces.
- Protecting us from flooding as a single mature tree can absorb up to 450 litres into its roots every day!
- Helping wildlife : Important species in their own right, trees also provide a source of food and habitat to a plethora of other species in our urban environments – Bats, birds, badgers, insect, other plants, fungi and mosses, this list is almost endless!
