Our Green Guarantee
Northeast Wilderness Trust stands for standing trees! That’s why, starting in July 2019, we launched our Green Guarantee.
What’s our guarantee? It’s that when you support the Wilderness Trust, you know your money is going to an organization that strives to be as sustainable and low impact as possible.
How do we currently achieve this?
- All paper products used at the office (yes—even toilet paper) and for mailings is post-consumer recycled.
- All cleaning products are environmentally safe and biodegradable.
- Whenever possible we conduct business utilizing teleconferencing to reduce the amount of driving to execute our mission.
What is the impact of our paper choice?
- For illustrative purposes, using a ton of Ancient Forest Friendly-certified paper (approximately two years-worth of business as usual at Northeast Wilderness Trust) rather than virgin paper saves 17 trees, 16,399 gallons of water, 1,678 pounds of solid waste, and 5,512 pounds of greenhouse gas emissions. Ancient Forest Friendly-certified paper is considered the highest standard in the industry. Northeast Wilderness Trust goes beyond Ancient Forest Friendly-certified paper with its 100% recycled commitment.
Moreover, rest assured that our long-term investments have been completely divested from the fossil fuel industry.
This is just the start and in the coming months and years Northeast Wilderness Trust will expand our Guarantee. If you have ideas on how we can reduce our carbon footprint, contact Cathleen at
