We swapped installing windscreens for a day to install trees!
On August 2nd we stopped installing windscreens and started installing trees! We wanted to plant a quantity of trees that carried significance to our workshop. So after some research we discovered if we planted 296 trees we would be off-setting the carbon emissions from our Devins Windscreens business vehicles, as well as the emissions from our personal vehicles for the whole of 2009. So that was our target - 296 trees. We rounded it off at 300, bought the trees, water crystals, water retention stuff and Planet Ark sent us our tee guards. The day came and we got down and dirty working as a team to dig, prepare, plant, mulch and water our new carbon-munchers! That evening we sat back with a well deserved drink of our own. As we listened we could hear the local wildlife rustling the bushes, and were content in the fact that they now have 300 additional sources of food and shelter growing for their (and our!) future. . . The End. From the Devins Windscreens Caboolture QLD team!
