Crombie Lockwood to support environmental education with new partnership

Crombie Lockwood has signed a three-year agreement with Trees for Survival to support its environmental education programme as a principal partner

Trees for Survival is a charitable trust that works with over 150 schools and local communities across New Zealand to plant native trees along waterways and on erosion-prone hillsides. Its environmental education programme gives schoolchildren the opportunity to make a practical difference for the environment as well as learn about conservation, revegetation, wetland restoration and protecting stream quality.

“Partnering with Trees for Survival is a great way we can help to protect New Zealand for future generations,” said Crombie Lockwood CEO Carl O’Shea. “The dual outcomes of education and ecology attracted us to Trees for Survival, and we’re excited to get involved.”

According to Crombie Lockwood, supporting a grassroots initiative like the Trees for Survival planting programme is part of its contribution to assisting and encouraging conversation about climate change at a local level.

“Having Crombie Lockwood come on board as a principal partner helps Trees for Survival reach more children in more schools,” said Dennis Millard, national manager of Trees for Survival. “This aids in achieving our goals of not only regenerating our native ecology through the planting of native trees, but also gives our children the opportunity to participate in a programme that addresses their concerns of environmental damage and climate change.”
