• Environmental Programme

Our environmental journey began in 2008 with carbon offsetting through the World Land Trust (WLT).  We now also support the WLT Plant a Tree programme which is linked to our rewards programme where points are earned when you buy eco products and then you redeem these points to plant trees.   So far Quills and our clients have planted 38 saplings in 2024 and we’re hoping to plant many more.

Carbon offsetting makes a difference 

World Land Trust (WLT) works with local NGO partners around the world to save and protect critically threatened habitat for wildlife and has funded the purchase and protection of more than 2,409,420 acres of tropical forest.

WLT’s Carbon Balanced programme allows companies to offset their unavoidable emissions through the protection of forests and areas effected by deforestation, to prevent the release of CO₂ into the atmosphere, address climate change and at the same time secure habitat for wildlife.

A Reward Scheme Helping Fight Climate Change

Quills Support WLT’s Plant a Tree Programme

In 2021 we launched our ‘Eco Reward Scheme’.  Reinforcing our commitment to the environment, Quills reward points is used to support the WLT Plant a Tree programme (view video below).  This means Quills and our customers are committed to help fight climate change, protecting habitats and helping save species. So far, WLT has provided the funds to plant over 2 million trees across 5,930 acres. Learn more about our rewards scheme here.

Plant A Tree Programme

Start Restoring Forests

Habitat loss is one of the greatest threats to wildlife worldwide, and WLT works with its network of in-country conservation partners to protect crucial habitats from threats such as agriculture, road building and mining.

WLT’s Plant a Tree programme is restoring areas of forest that have been lost in the past. In some of the reserve areas this adds a buffer zone and in other regions it connects fragmented forest to provide continuous habitat for wildlife to roam. Seeds are collected locally, and our WLT partners are supported through every step of reforestation, from seed to sapling to success. Tree planting is currently taking place in Armenia, Brazil and India.

Our Journey to Date…

Thanks to your support, we’ve now planted just over 100 trees in total.  We’d love to keep improving on this number as we continue to raise awareness of the Plant a Tree programme.  In 2024 alone, we’ve planted 38 trees which is already more than 2023, and we’re only in April as we write this update.  Don’t forget, you earn reward points every time you purchase eco workplace supplies.

As we continue to grow and evolve, we’re grateful for your ongoing support in our mission to shop more sustainably and protect our planet.

Carbon Paper Offsetting

Carbon emissions created through the production and delivery of your paper can be offset.  We work with the largest paper manufacturer in Europe and Forest Carbon to do this.  With your offsetting investment, Forest Carbon supports the creation of new woodlands in the UK.  Together, with their partners, they have planted over 7 million trees in woodlands independently audited and certified under the UK Woodland Carbon Code (this is the government backed standard that offers corporate partners complete assurance about the high quality of their carbon investment).
