We did it! Since its founding in 2016, NIKIN has been planting one Tree for every product sold. Within a little more than six years, we have together with our grandiosen community 2 million (!) trees planted. A tattoo-worthy milestone and reason to celebrate.
In a world threatened by climate change, it is increasingly important to work to protect the earth. One of the most effective ways to do this is to plant trees. Trees absorb carbon dioxide and release oxygen, which helps improve air quality. They also provide protection from natural disasters such as avalanches, floods and landslides by stabilizing the soil and absorbing water. Trees also provide habitat and food for many animals and contribute to the preservation of biodiversity. They create jobs, promote tourism, and provide a place for people to relax and unwind. In addition, trees reduce stress, provide protection from the sun, and are good for overall health. In short, an earth without trees would not be habitable.

We make a difference
What to do with abeer ideahas now become two million trees planted. When the two NIKIN founders Robin Gnehm and Nicholas Hänny met in McArthurs Pub in Lenzburg in 2016, neither of them would have thought that they would make the world so much greener with their idea - and in just six years. After all, the best thing is when your own actions have a positive impact. Thanks to the support of the community, NIKIN was able to make a difference and ensure a greener future.

That means 2 million trees
The number of 2 million trees is an impressive amount that even we can't really grasp yet! After all, a whole 40,000 acres or 161.8 km2 correspond to this number of trees. With this area, one could plant, for example, 22690 standard football fields. Our 2 million trees also produce enough oxygen for 3-4 million people. The reduction of CO2 emissions is also impressive: 2 million trees absorb a total of 334 million kg of CO2 per year. Incredible, but true!

Together we are strong
Since its foundation NIKIN can rely on the reliable partnerOne Tree Plantedhas been a reliable partner. This non-profit organization plants trees on behalf of NIKIN within large campaigns. One Tree Planted was founded in 2015, shortly before NIKIN. NIKIN regularly exchanges information with One Tree Planted and the founders of both companies have already visited each other several times. One Tree Planted has planted a total of 4 million trees in 2019.

#treebytree - 2 million is just the beginning
We are very proud to have had such an enormous impact on nature in this short time. However, this is just the beginning. According to our credo #treebytree, we will continue to contribute to reforestation worldwide. Every time you buy a garment from NIKIN , we plant one Tree. So you can dress well and do something good for the environment at the same time. At the same time, we go one step further next. We are working with local communities and organizations to ensure that the trees will continue to thrive in the future. We don't just want to plant trees, we want to make sure they stay healthy and strong. For a greener world.
