From Bottle to Forest: Our Tree Planting Journey

As a proud member of the 1% for the Planet initiative, we at 5 Mile Distilling pledge to donate 1% of our revenue to environmental causes every month. Our chosen recipient is Greening Taupō, a local organisation deeply invested in the revitalisation of our green spaces through their dedicated tree planting efforts.

Today, however, we did more than just donate; we got our hands dirty. We had the extraordinary opportunity to actively participate in the nurturing of our environment by helping plant the very trees that our donations facilitate.

This experience is not just a reminder of our ongoing commitment to environmental preservation, but also an incredibly humbling experience to see, firsthand, the impact of our contributions.

Being part of 1% for the Planet allows us not just to be spectators in the quest for a healthier planet but active contributors. Today's tree planting is a testament to the tangible change that can occur when businesses, individuals, and non-profit organisations unite for a common cause.

We look forward to continuing our support for Greening Taupō and actively participating in their admirable efforts. It's not every day you get to plant a tree, but it's reassuring to know that every day, we're making a difference. One donation, one tree at a time."
