After just 6 months, OLPRO is on track to achieve their ambition to plant thousands of trees within the first year of the initiative.
OLPRO launched the tree-planting initiative in celebration of the company’s 10-year anniversary as a business. The company has run the initiative in partnership with the tree-planting, carbon offsetting specialists, Ecologi.
Daniel Walton, the Founder of OLPRO, said: “We’re proud to have planted such a significant number of trees in a such a short space of time. We take great pride as a company in doing our bit to give back to the great outdoors that we all love so much“
“We also know that this is something our customers value, and we like to think that it’s one of the reasons why they’re so happy to buy their products from OLPRO. Our ultimate aim is to become a carbon-neutral company, and we will continue to plant a tree for each OLPRO tent and awning sold,” he added.
2020 was a record-breaking year for OLPRO, who saw a 98% increase in orders year on year, as well as a 49% increase in the number of visitors to their website. OLPRO also saw an increase in demand for their camping products internationally, selling products to a total of 29 different countries.
