Trees

One of mankind's greatest and most important natural resources are our trees. They appear everywhere and are the most ancient living organism on the Earth. Trees are one of the largest contributing factors to the amount of carbon in the atmosphere. They keep the air supply clean by using Carbon Dioxide as nutrition and releasing clean oxygen into the air. As the longest living organisms on the planet, their only threats are natural disasters and mankind. Additionally, they reduce noise pollution, improve water quality, help prevent erosion, provide food and building materials, create shade and help make our planet look beautiful.

Carbon Offsetting

Carbon Offsetting describes the effort to neutralize or reduce the detrimental impact on the environment caused by human activity. In abstract terms, your carbon footprint is the impact that your everyday activities have on the environment, measured in terms of carbon dioxide emissions.

Carbon Neutral describes any activity or system that emits no net carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. The system may emit some CO2 but a logically related system has been secured to sequester an equivalent of CO2. Carbon credits can be purchased from for-profit companies in order to offset activities that emit carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. Plants require carbon dioxide to survive the same way that humans require oxygen. Hark Design has teamed up with Greenpop to create an offset programme for our furniture.

For every piece of timber furniture sold we will donate a tree to their tree planting projects!
