Buy a Tee, Plant a Tree (Green)
Buy A Tee, Plant a Tree is an EastSide Greenways initiative.
For every t-shirt bought, you are contributing to the sustainability of the Connswater Community Greenway in east Belfast. You will also have the opportunity to plant a tree* in one of the parks along the Connswater Community Greenway.
These t-shirts have been produced by Material Goods, an environmentally conscious Belfast based company.
*Tree planting sessions will take place in February 2021 as part of the annual EastSide Greenways/ Connswater Community Greenway #LoveYourGreenway campaign.
Why is tree planting important?
Trees fight the cruel effects of a changing climate and help prevent flooding, reduce city temperature, reduce pollution and keep soil nutrient-rich.
In the UK, the value of trees for flood protection is estimated to be £6.5 billion, and £6.1 billion for urban cooling.
Belfast City Council plan to plant 1 million trees across the city over the next 10 years!
1444 native trees have been planted in east Belfast as part of the Connswater Community Greenway.
