DID YOU KNOW?
• Aldi has pledged to plant one million native hardwood trees by 2025 in conjunction with Green Belt, a private forestry company.
• Planting the one million native trees will remove more than 160,000 tonnes of carbon emissions over a 100-year period.
• To put this in context, this equates to roughly 640 million kilometres driven by an average passenger vehicle (or the emissions from about 400 cars each year), 68 million litres of petrol consumed, or 20 billion smartphones charged, enough to charge all of Ireland’s smartphones almost 47 times over each year.
• Aldi has planted 204, 532 native hardwood trees so far in sites across Limerick, Kerry, Cork, Mayo, Galway and Wicklow.
• The native tree plantations will create a wildlife corridor for native species and enable grassland to revert to more natural vegetation, further enhancing biodiversity in the area.
So why not play your part and pick up a Native Irish Tree in one of Aldi’s 145 stores nationwide from Thursday, 1st July while stocks last.
