James Ellis Environment Commitment

James Ellis commits to giving 1% for the Planet

With the start of the new decade, James Ellis have decided to make a difference to the natural environment and have committed to give 1% of their turnover to tree planting and environmental causes. Through the organisation 1% for the Planet, for every £100 spent with James Ellis they will be giving £1 back to the planet.

James Ellis have been producing greetings cards and stationery since 1997 and feel that it is time they started to take responsibility for the impact on the environment that their business has made. To date members have donated over £170 million to environmental causes, which are certified by 1% for the Planet.

In order to be certified and be able to use the 1% for the Planet logo donations have to be made to charities and non-profit members registered on the 1% for the Planet website. James Ellis are particularly interested in supporting causes involved in tree planting and protecting the natural environment. They have begun by donating to Avon Needs Trees, a charity set up to buy and reforest land in their local Bristol-Avon catchment area. Their first donation will be used to buy a piece of land that will be planted with indigenous trees that will extend an important habitat for endangered birds, wildlife and bats and will help protect nearby towns from flooding and stop water entering rivers, thus protecting towns and cities further downstream.
