Our School Orchard
A Corporate Social Responsibility project created by Atlas Packaging has been nominated for a prestigious award in Devon. The Our School Orchard project was created by Atlas Marketing Manager Seth Conway who suggested a tree planting scheme as part of the company’s community commitments. Seth explains:
“When I joined Atlas I was aware that the company has FSC certification where the paper that is used under that scheme comes from well managed forests and trees are replanted. But it seemed a good fit with the ethos of the firm to start planting trees locally. We teamed up with a North Devon organisation Orchards Live to help with this and between us we created Our School Orchard.”
Not only has the new scheme led to the planting of apple trees in primary schools across North Devon but it has also established an educational project to run alongside the tree planting.
