Our Eco Commitment


Since Tree Gifts NZ started in 2005, we have helped kiwi's plant over 44,094  trees and plants! We are committed to providing a green and sustainable gift option and are continually working on our sustainable efforts.  Some of these include:

Our Packaging: 

  • Wooden gift boxes are made from sustainable recycled pine, reuseable around the home or office.
  • We use 100% biodegradeable natural fibre Hessian to wrap our gifts.
  • Where possible printed material is on 100% recycled paper or card.
  • Our woodwool packaging is made from untreated pine. Reusable in the garden around plants to keep the bugs away, or layered in your compost bin.
  • We use cellophane instead of cardboard boxes to wrap and send our larger planter gifts as cellophane is naturally biodegradable.  "Cello"  in cellophane, stands for cellulose, the structual component in plants, biodegradable uncoated cellophane takes 1-2 months to break down.

Our Associations:

  •  Members of the Sustainable Business Network NZ.
  • Proud supporters since 2007 of Habitat for Humanity, sustainable building projects.

Did you know... 

  • Trees are the longest living organisms on the planet, and one of earth's greatest natural resources.  Not only do trees keep our air supply clean, but they are great for; reducing noise, improving water quality, helping to prevent erosion, providing food for families and creating shade / shelter.
  • On average one person uses 2 pine trees' worth of paper products each year.  
  • One tree can absorb as much carbon in a year as a car produces whilst driving 41,890 km. That means you could drive from Cape Reinga to the Bluff here in NZ thats from one end to the other... AND BACK ... 10 times!
  • New Zealand's oldest tree is the magnificient Kauri Tane Mahuta in the Waipoua Forest. Whilst it's age is unknown, it is estimated to be between 1,250 and 2,500 years old. Wow!

Please note: These figures have been collected from various sources and have not been independently verified by Tree Gifts NZ, we offer them for your own additional research but trust you find them interesting.
