MRS MIGHETTO X ENVIRONMENT
The environment is important to us. Nobody is perfect but we are trying to make conscious choices. We strive to have our products made from responsible sources and we are proud to support VI-skogen (a Swedish organisation) who plants trees in Africa to fight poverty.
When you choose to buy paper products from Mrs Mighetto, you are making a difference for the environment. We plant 10 new trees for every tree used in the entire production of the paper products we sell. The trees that are planted contribute to a more fertile soil, which in turn supports agricultural production.
We care to minimize our carbon footprint, we are now a proud supporter of Vi Agroforestry. The organization was founded in 1983, and has since planted 120 million trees*. By planting trees, Vi Agroforestry fights both climate change and poverty in Kenya, Rwanda, Uganda, and Tanzania, which is where the trees are planted.

Agroforestry, the combination of agriculture, animal husbandry and forestry, is the core principle of Vi Agroforestry. Agroforestry entails the planting of trees among crops and in areas where cattle graze in order to create a balanced ecosystem which is able to withstand climate changes and contribute to increased biodiversity.
