To integrate our loyal customers into our journey towards a greener, more sustainable future.
Launched in March 2015, Rooted in Change is Shoplet’s newest green initiative. With every order placed through Shoplet.com, a tree will be planted on the customer’s behalf. Our ultimate goal is to plant one million trees in underserved communities around the world. Rooted in Change was created to advance our efforts towards a greener, more sustainable future.
Since our inception, we have thought, ‘how can we give back?’ With Rooted in Change, we want to inspire our customers and make it simple for them to not only shop for green office products, but to also restore and preserve the environment with every order they make.
One thing we believe at Shoplet is that there are times to be proactive, and there are times to be reactive. For too long, the business supply industry was content with being reactive. Slowly but surely, green products became comparable replacements for their non-green alternatives by improving in quality and decreasing in price.
But this wasn’t enough. We weren’t actually giving anything back to the environment. We were just lessening the damage. Shoplet decided it was time to be proactive. We take it upon ourselves to initiate change, and we’re thrilled about this campaign (can’t you tell?).
Enacting change was no small task. The beginning of the green journey was filled with its fair share of challenges. Innovation proved key, as we had to stay ahead of the curve and go against the grain in our business practices.
None of this would be possible if it weren’t for our world-renowned partner, Trees.org, a nonprofit organization dedicated to restoring the natural and necessary resources for communities in need all around the world. Their efforts help revive landscapes and ensure sustainable farming practices for years to come.
We know that greening the office supply industry is about progress, not perfection. Shoplet will continue to take initiative and promote a positive global impact. We are committed to making green products the standard across the country and around the world. It’s the small operational changes that will end up making a big environmental impact.
Rooted in Change helps integrate you – our loyal customers – in our ultimate goal of planting 1,000,000 trees. And the best part is: your contribution is one click away!
