Your Posters, Desenio, and the Environment
By choosing to buy posters from Desenio, you are also doing something good for the environment. We plant two new trees for every tree used in the production of the posters we sell. The trees that are planted generate soil which is conducive to agriculture. They also provide food, protection against erosion, building materials, and much-needed shade for livestock and humans.
Furthermore, all posters created by Desenio are printed on environmentally-certified paper. This means that the paper is produced from trees originating through responsible forestry that takes people and the environment into consideration.
Desenio cares about the environment and, because we endeavour to reduce our climate footprint, we are now a proud support company of Vi Agroforestry. The organisation was founded in 1983, and since then has planted over 120 million trees*. By planting trees, Vi Agroforestry combats both climate change and poverty in Kenya, Rwanda, Uganda and Tanzania, which is where the trees are planted.
“Trees combat both climate threats and poverty”
Agroforestry, the combination of agriculture, animal husbandry and forestry, is the core principle of Vi Agroforestry. Agroforestry entails the planting of trees among crops and in areas where cattle graze in order to create a balanced ecosystem which is able to withstand climate changes and contribute to increased biodiversity.

Our wood frames
The wood in our frames is harvested in compliance with the EU Timber Regulation. This means ascertaining where the wood used in the frames comes from and following the process as closely as possible in order to prevent illegal logging and to ensure that the entire chain complies with EU regulations. Our wood frames are made from timber originating in the USA and Canada, which are considered low-risk countries. Thanks to these measures, you can rest assured knowing that we operate responsibly and comply with laws and regulations.
