Trees for the Future: Our Commitment to Sustainability

Here at Ekan Concepts, sustainability matters to us and our clients. That’s why we proudly implement a number of eco-friendly initiatives, from our renewable, FSC certified packaging to our partnership with Trees for the Future that plants one tree for every box ordered through our individual wooden wine box production line. We’re committed to protecting our planet by reducing single-use plastics and supporting initiatives that are working to encourage positive change.

One Tree Planted for Every Wine Box Sold

For every individual wine box that we sell, one tree gets planted back into the earth with the help of Trees for the Future. Through their Forest Garden Approach, they’re enabling farmers to plant thousands of trees to not only restore and protect the land and soil, but also the livelihoods of impoverished communities that have been impacted by climate change. For the past three decades, they’ve worked across five different countries throughout sub-Sahara Africa, including Cameroon, Kenya, Senegal, Uganda and Tanzania, helping thousands of farming families replenish the environment with profound results. By partnering with Trees for the Future, we’re helping to prioritize our planet and reimage a brighter, safer future for our kids and grandkids.

Protecting Present and Future Generations

We believe that we all play an important role in protecting our planet so that present and future generations can experience a happy, clean, and safe quality of life. That’s why we’ve dedicated our business to making sustainable wooden packaging for the past 20 years. As a renewable resource, our custom wood packages help to reduce negative impacts on the environment, including waste since they can be reused, repurposed, and recycled.

Corporate Responsibility for the Environment

Today, the impacts of climate change and plastic pollution have never been more apparent. Whether you switch on the TV, scan social media or take a stroll through your neighbourhood, it’s hard not to notice the devastation and pollution that surrounds us on a daily basis. As corporations develop and grow, they have a responsibility to protect and care for both the environment and human welfare. At Ekan Concepts, we take that role seriously which is why we only partner with suppliers who follow sustainable forestry practices. All of our materials are FSC certified which ensures the wood used in our packaging is sourced from forests that meet the highest environmental and social standards. When you purchase from us, you can feel confident knowing that your package isn’t causing harm to our planet. 

Reducing Our Carbon Footprint

Even though FSC certified wood is a sustainable and renewable resource, we know that it still requires trees to be uprooted, which are among the largest absorbers of greenhouse gas emissions. As an essential tool against climate change, we aim to replenish what we take. Our partnership program with Trees for the Future helps us offset our carbon footprint and restore the mutual, interdependent relationship we have with nature. 

Leading By Example

As a major international packaging supplier, we know that a great deal of power and responsibility is in our hands when it comes to fostering and encouraging positive change. Our commitment to continuously learning, improving and leading by example is fundamental to that change. From the quality of our sustainable wood boxes to the courteous and professional customer service that you can expect from our team – we take our business and our responsibility seriously. When you’re looking for the best wooden packaging company to help put your best foot forward, Ekan Concepts has you covered.
