The smallest change makes the biggest impact.

Together We Can Heal The Earth

The Best Time to Plant a Tree was 20 Years Ago.
The Second Best Time is Now

 

Over 80,000 acres of forest disappear from the earth every day. A variety of factors contribute to deforestation, and humans are one of them. While it is important to create, it is also important to leave the Earth better than we found it. At A LITTLE THING we are proud to stand with trees for the future.

We are excited to announce that we have taken the initiative to be part of the APE forest restoration project. APE Malaysia is a social enterprise that focuses on conservation as a means to enable wider change towards a sustainable future.

 There are many environmental benefits to planting a tree. Strategically planting trees can have tremendous benefits for the environment. Not only will you help restore life quality in your community, contribute to the environment and help fight climate change, but you will also set an example. Have you ever considered giving back to Mother Earth? This is a great opportunity!

The planting of a tree project is made possible only with your help. From this initiative, for every purchase over RM250, one tree will be planted as a representation of your support and participation. It’s our way of showing thanks to you, our customers, as well as to the environment.

We are not only a gifting company that makes people happy, but also one that strives to make the environment around us smile. Trees exhale for us so that we can inhale them to stay alive. Can we ever forget that? Let us love trees with every breath we take until we perish.
