Every order makes a difference - one tree planted each time you order!
Right now, many parts of our planet are experiencing extreme deforestation, which creates huge economic problems for some of our world's most disadvantaged communities.
The destruction of healthy forest systems causes so many different problems both for people and for the environment; trees provide a habitat for animals, purify water sources, control flooding and erosion and help to replenish the soil with nutrients needed for farming. When farmers can’t grow anything their farms fail and they have no option but to move to the overcrowded cities looking for work. Often they have to resort to selling themselves or their families into slavery just to survive.
On top of this, planting trees can help to reduce climate change by removing carbon dioxide from the air, storing carbon in the trees and soil, and releasing oxygen into the atmosphere.
We knew we had to do our bit to combat this deforestation crisis by committing ourselves to plant one tree for each order we receive.
We plant only native species of trees which vary according to location at our planting sites in Honduras, Kenya, Madagascar, Mozambique and Nicaragua. We also plant a percentage of agroforestry species for sustainable community use.
We plant one tree for each order you place, and 5,000 trees for every rally our Hyundai Power Products Motorsport Academy rally team enter.
In our first year, we planned to plant 100,000 trees. Thanks to your support, in our first 12 months, we smashed this total by planting 135,522 trees - over 1/3 more than we had hoped!
We are continuing with our pledge to plant a tree for every order.
So, by placing an order for a new Hyundai Power Product, as well as receiving a high-quality product, you will also be planting a tree to help save the environment.
