Laboratree - The Green Scheme - 1500 trees and Growing....
When you invest in Fastrak®, you can feel good in the knowledge that you are using the most eco-friendly tip refill system available. However, you can do even more to help preserve the environment for future generations by joining our Laboratree campaign.
What is Laboratree?
Laboratree is Alpha's scheme to plant trees and make a sustainable contribution to the environment. It's free to join and exclusive to Fastrak users, giving you a unique combination of green benefits.
Why plant trees?
- Trees absorb harmful carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, reducing the effects of global warming
- Woods provide habitats for many endangered wildlife species, conserving biodiversity
- Woods are a place for leisure and relaxation for us and future generations to enjoy
What does local tree planting mean for you?
We plant trees in the wood location nearest to your laboratory from a specially chosen Woodland Trust selection. This will be indicated on your personalised tree certificate. The trees are native, broadleaved varieties such as Oak, Ash & Birch. You can visit the woods at any time.
How is it going?
See how our tree dedications are developing at the different locations using the map below by clicking on the tree icons and feel proud of the contribution you are making to restoring and protecting Britain's precious woodland.
How Does it Work?
There are just three easy steps:
Register on-line and we'll send you a Laboratree collector's card with your unique identification number.
Apply the special tree tokens to your collector's card. These can be found on the outer layer of every Fastrak tip refill pack
When the card is full, return it freepost to us to receive your personalised e-certificate.
We'll plant a tree for you to recognise your contribution and we'll also send you a new Laboratree card so you can carry on collecting.
Where do we plant trees?
Our Laboratree campaign began in 2008 and has gone from strength to strength. Thanks to its many supporters, hundreds of trees have already been planted in the Scottish Highlands Alladale Reserve and elsewhere across the country. This has made a valuable contribution to a major reforestation project in association with the Carbon Managers and the Challenger Trust.
Woodland Trust Partnership
In response to customer feedback, we have now joined forces with the Woodland Trust, the UK's leading woodland conservation charity, to extend our tree planting activities to multiple locations nationwide.
