Tree-men­dous! Co-op cus­tomers at root of change

The Oban Times - - Outdoors -

CO- OP cus­tomers in Caol are be­ing given the chance to help re­for­est Glen Ne­vis with Scots pine with­out hav­ing to trudge around a hill­side.

Thanks to the fan­tas­tic Co-op Com­mu­nity Fund, Co-op cus­tomers can be a part of some­thing big by do­ing some­thing small.

The Ne­vis Land­scape Part­ner­ship is ask­ing you to sign up to be­come a Co-op mem­ber and choose the char­ity as your com­mu­nity cause. Then, ev­ery time you shop, one per cent of ev­ery Co-op home brand prod­uct you buy goes di­rectly into its Fu­ture Forests project to help re­for­est Glen Ne­vis with Great Bri­tain’s only truly na­tive pine, Scots pine.

To suc­cess­fully sup­port this cause and help with the tree plant­ing, be sure to swipe your new mem­ber­ship card ev­ery time you shop. It re­ally is that easy – sign up, shop, swipe, plant trees. Be sure to show your sup­port on Face­book and Twit­ter, too, to help spread the word.

To date the part­ner­ship has more than 2,000 Glen Ne­vis pine seedlings wait­ing to be planted – all seeds are col­lected from Glen Ne­vis pines and nur­tured lo­cally at lo­cal schools, nurs­eries and com­mu­nity cen­tres.

To­gether we can do more, the Co-op way. Fol­low the link to get started, www.coop.co.uk/ mem­ber­ship.
