Community outreach and getting our patrons involved in positive ways is a passion of ours. We live in an inspiring state, and this earth we call home is our biggest project yet. So this month, to promote eco-conscience efforts being made around us, 1% of your purchase is supporting the Vermont chapter of The Nature Conservancy! We are also providing an in depth glance at how one of our favorite furniture vendors, American Leather, supports a sustainable future for the furniture industry.
The Nature Conservancy aims to tackle climate change through multiple avenues in our communities as well as the natural world. They focus on protecting the land and water, providing food and water sustainability, and lastly, building healthy cities all over the world. Here, In Vermont, we have our own chapter of TNC that helps conservation efforts and builds community support throughout the state. The Nature Conservancy of Vermont operates year round and the amazing effects of their efforts can be seen throughout varying habitats as well as within legislation.
Supporting and protecting our environment is one of our largest endeavors today and Burlington Furniture helps advocate for change by supporting and working with The Nature Conservancy to help promote a positive ecological impact. Through TNC of Vermont, we plant hundreds of trees annually. To date we have successfully planted thousands of trees. Additionally, we donate to the Elm Restoration Project. This project is crucial in combating the devastating Dutch Elm Disease through restoring Elm trees in an effort to create a healthier population. Along with planting trees, we celebrate Earth Month by donating a portion of your purchases to TNC Vermont throughout April!
Vermont’s Nature Conservancy depends on its dedicated staff, awesome volunteers, and donations like yours and ours to keep its efforts strong and impactful. We love to help them conserve lands and support healthy ecosystems throughout Vermont year-round, don’t you?
