We’re a B2B copywriting agency. So why are we planting trees?

As a business, it's part of our mission to have a positive impact in the world. So we teamed up with Plant One to plant trees every time we reach a company goal. Here’s why it’s so important to us.

We’ve been writing B2B copy against the stunning backdrop of Cornwall for more than 13 years – so, we thought it’s about time we start giving back to our environment. And we’re happy to be doing it with our new partner, Plant One.

It's also a hyperlink to the Plant One website.Plant One is a registered Community Interest Company here in Cornwall,  that plants trees in the ground to benefit the local area, the region, and the world. It partners with small businesses and entrepreneurs, matching them with landowners to help make a positive impact on the environments where they work.

At Radix, we’re pledging trees (one for each member of our team) every time we reach a company target; the better we do, the more we’re able to help. And later in the year, we’re looking forward to visiting the site ourselves, to plant the trees we’ve pledged and see the impact we’ve made.

Our Creative Director and company co-owner, David McGuire, offered his perspective on why the scheme makes such good sense for the company:

“There’s no point in having a successful business if it comes at the expense of the world. As owners of Radix, we’re attracted to the ideas that help us give back and make a positive difference as we grow – so Plant One is perfect.”

So far, we’ve pledged 76 trees in our first quarter with Plant One, and that number is growing fast.

It’s amazing to have such a stake in the future – we’re planting something that might grow for hundreds of years and will hopefully benefit many generations to come.”
