Online Tree Planting Day

Distancing rules, ban on events, two-household recommendation: Covid-19 is making everyday life more difficult for all of us - and meant the end of NIKIN's Tree Planting Days in 2020. The NIKIN family decided that this shouldn't happen again in 2021. The motivated team did everything they could to ensure that a Tree Planting Day could be held this year. But what if the health of everyone involved is the highest priority? With an online version.

Smoking heads at NIKIN

The NIKIN family invested a lot of thought, sweat and meetings in planning the Online Tree Planting Day. A gathering of people or physical contact had to be avoided at all costs. Thanks to modern technologies, this is even possible today. The participants from Switzerland and southern Germany received CO2-neutral trees sent home. There, in their own garden, they planted their tree. You received the instructions via email. And to create something like a feeling of togetherness, every tree planter received a TreeShirt. Participants were also allowed to send photos and videos of their newly planted trees to NIKIN. These impressions were compiled into an aftermovie. The individually planted trees were put together - like a forest.

Spruces, larches, firs and oaks

The participants each received a seedling sent home. Pecan trees, silver firs and European larches were planted in Switzerland. In southern Germany it was red spruce and swamp oak. In total, the Online Tree Planting Day enriched the world with 537 trees. We would be happy to tell you how this number is made up:

  • 180 participants registered for the Online Tree Planting Day. 23 live in southern Germany, 157 in Switzerland. They each planted one tree in their garden, i.e. 180 trees.
  • We're doubling that number with a donation to One Tree Planted. For every tree that a participant plants on the Online Tree Planting Day, we plant another one with One Tree Planted. A further 180 trees will be planted.
  • All participants also received a TreeShirt. Since one tree is planted per tree shirt, an additional 177 trees are added. Why 177 when 180 people took part? Three participants are NIKIN employees who planted a tree in their garden. They already have a number of TreeShirts in their closets from other events and employee gifts, which is why they didn't need a TreeShirt for the Online Tree Planting Day.

 

Symbolic effect

Nothing can replace the exuberant atmosphere, the sense of togetherness and the impressions of wonderful nature on our physical Tree Planting Days. With the online version we would like to draw attention to the important topic of reforestation. It is also important to us to put a smile on the faces of our community in these difficult times. Since we were only able to offer a limited number of places for the Online Tree Planting Day, we are offering a special special in our online shop. Until the end of March, a TreePlanting Kit will be included with every purchase from Switzerland with an order value of 20 francs or more. Simply enter the voucher code TreePlantingDay2021 when checking out in our online shop. Happy planting!
