Last-mile logistics platform Stuart is partnering with Green Elf Trees to deliver locally sourced trees to customers across London over the festive period.
The partnership will see trees dispatched from Stuart’s delivery hub in West London, powered by its fleet of 100% electric vehicles.
Customers will be provided with a next-day delivery slot, and proceeds from every order will be given, by Green Elf Trees, to Ukrainian refugees and local charities.
Orders can be placed directly on the Green Elf Trees website, and shoppers can choose either cut or rentable pot-grown trees before selecting the charity they would like to donate to.
After Christmas, Green Elf Trees will collect the trees delivered and replant them in the South East of England.
“We’re very pleased to be supporting such an ethically focused company that combines sustainability with customer convenience,” Stuart UK general manager Brendan Hamill said.
“We’re continuing to see growing demand for rapid turnaround on items, so we’re proud to be working with Green Elf Trees to reduce carbon emissions whilst providing flexible delivery options for customers.”
Green Elf Trees co-founder Caleb Silcock added: “We’re really excited to be working with Stuart this year. We want everyone to be able to celebrate the festive season knowing they’ve made a better decision for the environment and their community.”
“Through partnering with Stuart, orders arrive in 100% electric vans, and customers can choose to receive their delivery at a time that suits them.
“Sustainability is at the heart of all our decision-making, and we’re pleased to give back through donating to charities and focusing on tree replenishment.”
