Samuel Grant Packaging partnered with their print service provider Oyster to attend their planting day in Holmfirth on Friday 8th March 2024. Enough trees were planted to reforest the annual paper consumption used by Samuel Grant Packaging under Oyster’s ‘You print we plant’ initiative. 

The Leeds’ branch team from Samuel Grant Packaging had the opportunity to plant the trees themselves and learn about the impact that the trees will have on the local environment: ensuring the survival of species threatened by habitat loss, maintaining ecosystems and safeguarding our ecological heritage. 

Oyster’s sustainable approach to tree planting is holistic, offsetting all of Samuel Grant’s paper consumption by reforestation. 

 ‘It gives Oyster great pride to be able to offer this experience to our clients, all of whom can now see the vital importance of our sustainable printing project,’ said Oyster’s Director Phil Birkhead. ‘Over 7,500 hedgerow plants, shrubs and trees were planted, making a positive impact on the local environment and increasing the biodiversity for generations to come.’ 

‘Samuel Grant’s employees were delighted to see this Oyster’s pledge in action’ said Suzanne Durnian, General Manager, Samuel Grant Leeds. ‘It was incredible and a real privilege to represent the values of our company, in terms of the environment and CSR. It was also a great opportunity to meet like-minded people from other companies, working together and seeing the impact of our efforts on the environment.’
