Yes – we can call it a crisis
Climate change is a term almost everyone has heard during the past decade. With news permeating the headlines about the Amazon rainforest, Australia, and California wildfires, it is hard for even the doubtful minds to explain the devastating events with anything other than global warming. We have come a long way from scientists and nature activists warning people about the urgency of climate change to governments and world leaders finally showing signs of collective action – latest examples being the Paris Agreement in 2015 and COP26 in 2021. Our planet, however, needs more than sophisticated words.
Sustainability is not ‘a nice-to-have’ for businesses anymore.
According to several sources, including the European Commission, NASA, and WWF, the main causes impacting climate change are fossil fuel burning, deforestation and tree-clearing, and agriculture. While other causes need immediate focus as well, trees and plants play an extremely important role in controlling the climate due to absorbing carbon dioxide from the air. They don’t call forests ‘the lungs of the planet’ without reason.
Healthy Nibbles pursued a B Corp accreditation to certify our commitment to being an impact-driven business and are proud to work in partnership with companies like Treeapp to cut greenhouse gas emissions. Sustainability is not ‘a nice-to-have’ for businesses anymore, it is simply business-essential for companies to demonstrate their commitment to sustainable goals.
Who are Treeapp?
We had a chat with Jules Buker, the co-founder of Treeapp, who still remembers the day when he started the company: “Treeapp started in 2019 after a devastating summer of wildfires. We identified three main barriers to making an impact: people don’t have the time, money, or know how to take action.” Treeapp is a mobile app that enables anyone to plant a tree for free in less than a minute. Trust us, it’s as easy as it sounds. The app offers users in the UK and Ireland the possibility to plant trees for free all over the world, track their impact and discover sustainable brands who fund the user’s tree to be planted every day.

Treeapp enables eco-conscious businesses to have a direct impact on the environment by planting trees with them. Their reforestation projects not only reduce global emissions but provide sustainable solutions for local communities in Africa, South America, and Asia by creating jobs and improving livelihood. “We saw a strong alignment between Healthy Nibbles’ ethos and our mission to ‘green’ this planet. We are glad to count Healthy Nibbles as one of our partners and are excited to be working with one of the first B Corp companies in this space!” Jules continues and gives us a net promoter score of 10! Thank you, Jules!

Be the change – plant a tree
With over 69 football fields of forest being cut down every minute around the world, we need to act. Everyone has a role to play in the fight against climate change. By measuring, reducing, and offsetting emissions, businesses and individuals can make a long-lasting impact on our planet.
Individuals can plant trees through Treeapp or when purchasing Healthy Nibbles’ conscious (and delicious!) snack boxes. Are you a business instead? Head to Treeapp’s B2B platform or set an example and donate trees when finishing your order with Healthy Nibbles to improve not only the wellbeing of our planet, but the wellbeing of your people. Jules couldn’t have said it better: “The people make the company. We have been very fortunate to build a wonderful team, with people coming from different backgrounds and cultures. This diversity is at the heart of what makes Treeapp so unique.”
