Ziplongs in the forests of Ethiopia
Okay, it might be a bit misleading to say that there are Ziplongs’ in the forests of Ethiopia. But we do pay an environmental tax for each product we sell through our webshop, and these money are being used to plant trees in Ethiopia. To plant trees in places where you normally wouldn’t find trees, is one of the main measures to reduce CO2 emissions. In 2014 we paid 10500 Norwegian kroner to this project in Ethiopoia initiated by “Utviklingsfondet” (The development fund). With this amount of money farmers have planted 2625 trees.
This means that when you buy a Ziplongs or a Zipbody from us, you are also planting about five trees in Ethiopia!
