Let's plant a million trees

At Yorkshire Tea, we love trees so much that we're planting a million of them over five years. With help from our friends at the Woodland Trust, hundreds of green-fingered children in the UK and Kenya and a dash of inspiration from The Gruffalo, we're chuffed to say that we've already planted 200,000 in our first year. You can learn all about it on this website.

Over 5000 Saplings!
