One Earth Pledge

At One Earth we are committed to making a difference to the future of the planet for future generations – not only through launching the One Earth Show which offers consumers the opportunity to come along and learn about the small positive changes they can make, but we are also committed to our own sustainability pledge and are delighted to be working with ForestNation to plant trees, to help offset the events carbon emissions, leave a positive legacy from the event and support the local communities where the forests are planted.

One Earth Action

We are working with ForestNation on our ambition to plant 100,000 tress by 2020. One Earth will plant a tree for every ticket purchased to attend the event. In addition we will encourage partners, exhibitors and speakers to help us reach our goal by planting additional trees with ForestNation.

One Earth Show

One Earth Show is a brand new event for all ages, to come along and discover how to make everyday day changes for a more sustainable lifestyle. The two day event 24-25 October 2020 takes place at the NEC Birmingham brings together consumers looking to learn about the issues facing the planet and who want to make more sustainable buying choices, with organisations, charities and suppliers who can advice and inspire. One Earth Show will host high profile speakers on the main stage, an exhibition of sustainable products and suppliers, and hands on practical workshops for visitors to pick up tips to get started with straight away.
One Earth is proud to partner with ForestNation who support the event as reforestation partner and support the ambition to plant 100,000 trees, planting a tree for every visitor. In addition the event is also supported by Reach Plc, MyGreenPod, Pebbl, First News, the NEC and the Ticket Factory.

Giving back to Mother Earth

It was important to us to work with a UN approved global reforestation partner. ForestNation offered us an amazing opportunity help create sustainable livelihoods for local farming communities, providing jobs, food and education in addition to the environmental benefits of planting trees.

Our Social Responsibility

One Earth is committed to creating a platform to help make a difference to the planet, and as such, wherever possible we aim to have as little impact on the environment as possible. We choose to work with partners and suppliers who share the same values as us and are working together to continuously challenge and find new ways to reduce waste, energy and environmental impact.

In 2020 these are just some of the steps we will take;
Off set the event’s carbon emission
E-ticket only event, reducing the use of paper
Holding the event at the NEC – who are committed to delivering events that are as sustainable as possible, through their Sustain policy.
Removing as much single use plastic from the event as possible
Providing locally sourced food options at the event, where the majority of produce travels no more than 30 miles and supports local businesses
Working in partnership with public transport providers to offer visitors discounted travel to the event
And we have an ambition to plant 100,000 trees working with ForestNation. We will plant a tree for every ticket purchased to attend One Earth.

We all face challenges in trying to make a difference; thinking about how we consume and the products that we use, the events industry is no exception to that. The One Earth Show is trying to encourage a positive change in day to day lives and that includes how we deliver the event.

We believe that small changes really can make a big difference.

FAQs

ForestNation is a social business. We combine commercial, social and environmental goals equally. We empower individuals, companies and organizations to fulfill their own missions whilst growing a forest and creating sustainable livelihoods. We believe that giving back to Mother Earth should be fun and inspiring.

CO2: A tropical tree absorbs 50 pounds of carbon dioxide per year on average throughout its lifetime.
O2: Trees breathe out oxygen 4 to 5 times the amount of CO2 they absorb each year.
Land reforested: 1000 trees per hectare is a general reforestation best practice.
Jobs created: It takes 68 hours for 1 caretaker to create 10000 tree seedlings and 1 hour per day to maintain them. That translates to 40 hours of work for every 1000 trees.

For every 10,000 trees planted at least double that will germinate naturally within 5 years providing for generations to come. Also the forest provides habitat & shade for animals, natural resources for locals and adds to the beauty of the region.

We plant in the forests of Tanzania, Haiti, Uganda, Malawi, Madagascar and more. All our Tree Planting Projects create sustainable livelihoods. All the trees absorb CO2, offset carbon emissions and contribute towards the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. More details about where we plant trees for each campaign are explained on the campaign page.

We work closely with our local tree nurseries to ensure bests practices are followed. They use agroforestry techniques where trees or shrubs are grown around or among crops or pastureland to increase natural reforestation and biodiversity as nature intended.

We mostly plant trees which provide harvest to the local communities. For example, fruit trees are planted around schools in Tanzania to provide nutrition to the children. Our trees also help avoid land degradation. For example, trees were planted along the Lushoto water catchment basin, which supplies fresh water to over 20,000 people in the Lushoto Township and is important to prevent future stream bank erosion.

It takes 8 to 9 months for tree seedlings to be prepped for plantation. Different species are stocked up and made ready for planting during favorable seasons. For example, our Tanzanian nursery plants from March to June and October to December.

A Tree kit has everything you need to grow a tree from seed. We plant matching trees for every tree kit you get as a gift. We also plant matching trees whenever you name your Tree on ForestNation.

Trees connect you with Mother Earth and ignite your nurturing instinct. Growing something from seed helps you experiencing nature’s magic and give back. Tree kits also support our local Tree kit maker (1000 kits create a full day of work).
