Pinks Boutique

With every Pinks Boutique product sold, we donate money to help fund the work of the Eden Reforestation Projects through Greenspark. They give us an exact measurement of how many trees will be planted, so both you and Pinks Boutique can measure the impact. Your purchases are helping fight against extreme poverty and combat deforestation through planting trees.

In just a few months since this went live on, we have already planted nearly 8000 trees! This equates to 4.167 football pitches worth of trees planted or 2.96 hectare of forest area planted.

Nearly 75% of the earth’s surface has been altered and impacted by human activity. Every tree you plant helps to employ local communities to plant trees, providing an empowering means to alleviate extreme poverty through environmental stewardship.

Importance of trees

The canopies of trees act as a physical filter, trapping dust and absorbing pollutants from the air. Each individual tree removes 1.7 kilos every year. They also provide shade from solar radiation and reduce noise.

Looking after wildlife

Trees host complex microhabitats. they offer habitation and food to amazing communities of birds, insects, lichen and fungi. When ancient, their trunks also provide the hollow cover needed by species such as bats, woodboring beetles, tawny owls and woodpeckers. One mature oak can be home to as many as 500 different species.


Deforestation is a fundamental risk for nearly 1.6 billion people worldwide who depend on forests for their livelihood, including 70 million indigenous people. Land clearing for agricultural use, mining, commercial activity, logging, wildfires, and fuelwood harvesting all contribute to the deforestation of these vital habitats.
