A crucial step towards understanding our impact on ecology and what we can do about it is acknowledging the business that we are in. Teddy Mountain® is a consumer product that requires energy, transportation and resources to be produced. By acknowledging our situation we are able to determine which areas we can improve upon and which areas we have to offset with a different toolset. We are working hard to be able to offer the best quality products to you, our customer, while also addressing the long term Sustainability of our business model and Impact on our Planet.
Teddy Mountain® has been and will continue to ramp up efforts on reducing it's footprint. One of these includes contributing to Reforestation efforts via a new proactive partnership with One Tree Planted.
Which is also where YOU, our Customer, come into play! Because we are pledging to donate $1 for every order placed with Teddy Mountain®. With this contribution our partner One Tree Planted pledges to plant 1 Tree!
We have selected the highest impact Carbon Offset locations for Your Trees!
ONE ORDER. ONE TREE. ONE PLANET.
