Yorkshire Tea Tree Campaign

TreeApproximately between 3 billion and 6 billion trees are cut down per year.

Yorkshire Tea has decided they want to make a difference and would like to be a “tree friendly” brand.  This involves a campaign that will see them plant one million trees in the UK and Kenya.

They have forged a partnership with children’s book The Gruffalo and as part of the campaign they have just launched a fun and educational mini-game app, ‘The Gruffalo and the Vanishing Wood’. It’s designed for children aged three to seven to teach them about the value of trees.

The free app asks players to help save the deep dark wood by taking a stroll with the Gruffalo and Mouse to plant trees before they all vanish.

“We think that this will really help us engage the next generation in the importance of trees and in doing so , demonstrate to their parents that Yorkshire Tea is the proper brew that makes a proper difference,” said the marketing manager at Yorkshire Tea.

This is just one tool they are using to help support their five year pledge to plant one million trees.

“Thank You Crocky Trail For The Laughter, Mud and Memories”

One of our ambassadors wrote a brilliant blog for Crocky Trail. We wanted to share it with you:

2015-05-15_14.03.18“On Sunday we made our very first visit to The Crocky Trail, which is in Waverton in Chester. Over the years I have heard many good things about it, and we were really looking forward to trying it out for ourselves.

Now with having a nearly teen boy and a 9 year old girl, I really struggle to find days out that they both enjoy. But this certainly ticked all the boxes. They both wanted to try out the slides first, and this kept them both amused for about 30 minutes. In fact they spent a good few hours on all of the activities and challenges before we even got to the trail.

The Titanic is hilarious. Its basically a slide which goes higher and higher until you admit defeat and slide to the bottom. Hubby was rubbish at this and blamed his ‘slippy’ jeans!

It was then time to head to the trail which is around a mile long. You walk along by a stream and there are lots of activities that you can have a go at, such as rope swings, bridges and logs. Yes there was mud involved but kids are kids and it was great to see them having so much fun. At the side of the stream there is also a path which avoids the obstacles, and would be great if you have a buggy.

The whole Crocky Trail pushes your boundaries, and its a great place to have fun as a family. I heard so much laughter from other like minded people, and equally muddy kids. It has a rustic and simplistic charm about the place. Its definitely all about getting into the outdoors and enjoying back to basics fun. What’s not to love about that in this media world we live in.”
