OLPRO's New Tree Planting Initiative
On 5th October we are launching the pre-orders for our new 2021 range of major outdoor leisure products, along with a pledge to plant one tree for each product sold.
In celebration of our 10 year anniversary as a business, the all-new 2021 range will be available next year and includes the very latest in innovative tents, awnings and camping accessories.
The new range of products includes 4 new tents:
- The Odyssey – OLPRO’s largest inflatable 8 person tent,
- The Gemini – a 4 person vis-à-vis tent,
- The Ranger - a backpacking tent,
- The Pod – a kitchen tent.
The range also includes 3 new campervan awnings:
- The WRAP,
- The Hive
- The Lunar.
The tree-planting initiative that we have launched in partnership with UK-based, Ecologi is expected to lead to the planting of thousands of trees within the first year. It also marks a significant step in our ambition to become a carbon-neutral company that benefits the environment whilst also retaining the quality that the OLPRO community love so much.
We've planted 22 trees in our forest so far, and we can't wait to follow the progress when we begin to deliver our new products! Our funding has already started lowering the levels of CO2, 1.17 tonnes of CO2e to be precise, and it's fantastic to see that it has already directly been spent helping to repair water boreholes in Eritrea and on the installation of solar power in Maharashtra in India.
Daniel Walton, Founder of OLPRO, said: "The entire OLPRO team is really excited to be launching our new product range for 2021. With OLPRO now available in more countries than ever before, we look forward to seeing more customers around the world enjoy the products that our team have been perfecting in product development for the last 2 years. Demand for camping equipment and camping holidays in general has been unlike anything we’ve ever experienced before, and we know that many campsites are already well-booked even for the summer of 2021. At OLPRO we've nearly doubled the amount of staff we employ in customer services, just to keep up with this increased demand. So we know that our customers will be able to book in their next big holiday with the added excitement of being able to enjoy a new world class OLPRO product and the world class service that goes with it."
Elliot Coad, Managing Director of Ecologi, said: "We're excited to be helping OLPRO make significant impact on the climate emergency. At Ecologi we strive to make climate action as simple as possible and we are always excited to see how our customers implement our ideas. We look forward to planting thousands of trees together with the OLPRO team."
