To make our business more sustainable and to offset all carbon emissions, we plant a native tree on the historic Huriawa Peninsula, Karitane, New Zealand for every 25 orders we receive at Nicorette 2U. We started this practice several years ago, and have planted many hundreds of trees in the period since. The programme has been gratefully embraced by our local community and iwi (local Maori tribe).
Here is what the local Ngai Tahu Runaka or Tribal Council had to say about our planting programme:
As stewards of Huriawa Peninsula, Kati Huirapa Runaka warmly welcomes the contribution of Nicorette 2U to the biodiversity of this fragile environment. The planting of local indigenous plant species to Huriawa stabilizes erosion and helps to restore the natural habitat of a number of key bird and insect species that have declined through past farming practices. It also enhances the experience of the many visitors who come to this special place. Thanks, Mark and Emma.
Kiaora Emma and Mark
We wish to thank you for the wonderful, wonderful contribution of plants for Huriawa.
We appreciate your thoughtfulness and generosity and also the commitment you have both shown to the restoration of the Peninsula.
Thank you x
