Trees for All & Kudu Company
Kudu cooperates with Trees for All. Deze organisatie plant in Nederland en daarbuiten bomen om ontbossing tegen te gaan, lokaal werk te creëren en CO2 uit de lucht te filteren. Kudu maakt onder andere gebruik van hout en wil daarom iets goeds terug doen voor mens en natuur. Op deze manier zorgen we ervoor dat er meer bomen in de natuur terugkomen, dan dat we voor onze producten gebruiken. Per verkocht product doneert Kudu aan Trees for All.

Trees can grow into real forest giants of up to 50 meters high. Just think how much CO2 these fast-growing trees absorb every year! It works both ways: it creates local employment and gives back living space to endangered species such as the chimpanzee and the jaguar.
