Tesco and the RSPB today announced a groundbreaking partnership called ‘Together For Trees’ to help protect rainforests around the world! We’ve teamed up with Tesco to increase awareness of the deforestation crisis and raise essential funds to tackle the problem.
‘Together For Trees’ aims to raise over £1million for the RSPB in its first year. Customers are able to help through the donation of points and Tesco is contributing an additional £75,000 from the sale of its new range of Together For Trees reusable bags. Although customers in Wales are now unable to gain ClubCard points for reusing bags, Tesco is donating the net proceeds of the Welsh bag levy to RSPB Cymru to help fund special habitats in Wales!
The money raised by Together for Trees will be spent on the RSPB’s rainforest projects across the world! Rainforests that are home to more than two thirds of the planet’s land-based creatures, three quarters of all endangered bird species and have more than one billion of the world’s poorest people depending on them to survive.

And there’s exciting news for any budding adventurers! To mark the announcement of the campaign, Tesco and RSPB are also launching a competition to find a ‘Rainforest Reporter’. A search for the person who’s got what it takes to travel to one of the projects in the RSPB’s rainforest programme and experience first-hand the pioneering conservation work being done to protect the area.
