Each month, the company provides two pieces of fruit a month for every employee. One of the suppliers we use is Fruitful Office, who recently shared some great sustainability news with us. Over the last six months, from October 2018 to this March, for every box of fruit we ordered, they planted a fruit tree in Malawi, Africa. In total, we ordered 106 boxes of fruit between these dates, so that’s 106 fruit trees!
Fruitful Office continue to work alongside Ripple Africa, a UK charity working in Malawi, for this worthwhile cause. The trees (mostly guava and papaya trees) provide income generation as well as fruit and firewood for impoverished Malawian families. The trees are grown by households, schools and farms.
Thank you to Fruitful Office for this brilliant contribution and thanks to you for eating all the fruit!
