Planting 200+ trees with Edding and Tree Appeal
The sun came out for us last week, 26th April 2022, at the tree planting ceremony organised by Tree Appeal and Edding UK. As Edding UK's partner, Banner got their hands dirty as part of the tree-planting team at Ryecroft Academy in Leeds.
Four members of the Banner team - Alex Clayton, Kirk Townsend, Alex Milano-Tee and Natasha Barker - joined colleagues from Edding, as well as a big group of pupils from Ryecroft Academy, and got stuck in to planting over 200 trees of different varieties - helping us and them learn more about sustainability and the environment.
Edding's Climate Neutral EcoLine marker pens are made from at least 90% recycled materials, and from April 2022, Edding UK are donating 5p from the sale of every single Edding EcoLine marker to Tree Appeal. Find out more.
Tree Appeal's Trees for Schools
Tree Appeal provides trees to schools and colleges throughout the UK, paid for by corporate sponsors, meaning that there is no charge to the schools receiving them. It's a great learning experience for the children, and does good for the planet. They are an environmental organisation who plant trees to promote biodiversity, create habitats and enhance the environment.
