Let's improve biodiversity together

Since September 2020, H&M has donated all its paper bag sales (excluding VAT) to EcoTree, supporting more than 20 biodiversity projects in France. Among these projects, H&M is participating in the restoration of two wetlands of 3,5 ha in Brittany, the installation and management of 247 beehives and 100 nest boxes, the creation of 2 educational trails in the north and center of France, three underwater clean-up operations near Marseille and Saint-Tropez, the restoration of the burnt-down Marzols forest in south France, the planting of a wild orchard in Langonnet forest in Brittany, and the creation of a flower meadow in Préaux forest.

EcoTree

Sponsoring beehives & planting forests

Since 201, XBEE Enzyme Fuel Technology has been an EcoTree-partner, sponsoring four beehives in our Châtelain and Plouray forests. The international company which started in Brittany, France, has planted over 50 trees in its home country.

“We are really happy about this partnership with EcoTree, happy to help bees and trees in this beautiful region, and happy to do more for our environment!" - Ronan Pennec, CEO of XBEE

EcoTree

Sowing flower meadows

Rubel & Menasché helped create 500 m2 of flower meadow at Lalacelle, in Normandy, on the banks of a stream. Once a pasture, this meadow is surrounded by farmland, which can only provide wild pollinators with limited food resources. In addition to providing food for pollinators, the flower meadow will provide other benefits to the area: limiting soil erosion, enhancing the landscape, diversifying land use, etc.

EcoTree

Developing agroforestry

For its 30th anniversary, Danival launched the #TousEngagés (which can be translated to #GetInvolved) operation. For every Danival product purchased at the Supermarket chain Naturalia, they donated 50 cents to EcoTree to support the restoration of agricultural ecosystems through agroforestry. This operation enabled an 8-hectare farm specialising in producing organic mushrooms to convert to an agroforestry model.
