Speedwell’s Green Promise

Our Mission

Speedwell’s mission is simple! We’re joining the fight against climate change and by purchasing any vehicle from us, you’re helping play your part as we will plant ten trees in Haiti or Madagascar. We’ve teamed up with Our Forest to help achieve our goal.

10 trees planted for every car sold!

One of the biggest threats to our planet’s ecosystem is deforestation. Most notably, deforestation leads to a loss of habitat for millions of species. Many animals cannot survive outside of their ecosystem and one day, the destruction of their land could mean an end to the population. This is why it’s more important than ever that we work together to bring the trees back.

Why are we doing it?

Trees are essential for people, wildlife and the environment. Thousands of wildlife species depend on trees for food and shelter. Trees help clean the air we breathe, filter the water we drink, and provide habitat to over 80% of the world’s terrestrial biodiversity. Forests provide jobs to over 1.6 billion people, absorb harmful carbon from the atmosphere, and are key ingredients in 25% of all medicines.

Trees also play a key role in capturing rainwater and reducing the risk of natural disasters like floods and landslides. A single tree can be home to hundreds of species of insect, fungi, moss, mammals, and plants. Through their leaves and bark, trees absorb harmful pollutants and release clean oxygen for us to breathe. In urban environments, trees absorb pollutant gases like nitrogen oxides, ozone, and carbon monoxide, and sweep up particles like dust and smoke.

What does this achieve?

Each country has deforestation problems for a variety of different reasons, but the solution is the same for Speedwell regardless. Our planting project leads to higher soil quality, reduction in CO2 emissions, protected areas for local species and employment in impoverished areas.

Where are we planting them?

Speedwell’s planting project takes place in two countries: Madagascar and Haiti. Both countries were chosen based on deforestation rates and its resulting impact on the community. While Madagascar’s deforestation issue is species loss, Haiti’s is due to lack of sustainability.
