HTA's National Garden Gift Vouchers to save the rainforest with Cool Earth

The HTA's National Garden Gift Vouchers (NGGV) and rainforest charity, Cool Earth, are joining forces to run a month-long 'Save the Rainforest' promotion in a bid to save 80ha of rainforest.

With every in-store purchase of NGGVs worth £10 or more, customers will receive a certificate confirming that they have personally protected 100 sq feet of rainforest. Recipients will also gain access to additional information about the importance of rainforests to the environment and can even locate the area they have helped to protect, in Parijaro, Peru.

Matthew Owen,director of Cool Earth said: "The partnership with National Garden Gift Vouchers will have the sort of impact that will make a difference. Every 100 sq.ft. plot will be protecting some of the most valuable plants in the world - many don't even have names yet - as well as vulnerable communities and threatened rainforest. We're thrilled that National Garden Gift Vouchers are making the importance of protecting the environment such a key issue."

HTA director of marketing Andrew Maxted added: "It's fantastic to know that half a tonne of carbon emission will be saved by each NGGV customer. Better still, the redeemed vouchers can be spent on a choice of over 90,000 gardening products helping to boost the biodiversity of our gardens, right here in the UK."

NGGVs are available in £1, £5, £10 and £25 denominations and can be purchased at over 2,000 leading gardening retail outlets across the UK.
