Two of our newest ZEALers, Gabi and Zoë, braved the November chill this week to help do our bit for the planet and for our local community.

City of Trees is an innovative and exciting movement set to transform Greater Manchester’s landscape. Their pledge to plant 3 million trees across the city is a cause we were delighted to support, an ambitious venture that mirrors ZEAL’s own values.

As part of our support of the initiative, ZEAL were invited to send volunteers to spend the day with the City of Trees team and Gabi and Zoë were the first to dig out the woolly hats and jackets.

The girls thoroughly enjoyed getting stuck in, planting a total of 5 trees alongside other companies from MediaCity. One small step for ZEAL but one giant leap for Planet Earth!

Gabi, Senior Account Executive, explains why she enjoyed being involved:

‘It was great to get outdoors and experience the great work that City of Trees do. From talking with various volunteers, we could really see the passion they hold in re-invigorating Greater Manchester’s green spaces by transforming underused and unloved woodlands.’

Stewart Hilton, Co-founder and Creative Director, explains why he was happy to support the cause:

‘All too often, our team find themselves chained to their desks, despite my best efforts to get them out of the office. I was therefore thrilled to send two of our own promising seedlings to help contribute to such a worthy cause. We are very pleased to support City of Trees in their inspiring enterprise – what a fantastic way to help our local community and Planet Earth!’

ZEAL are looking forward to checking on their trees in a couple of years to see how tall they have grown. We can only imagine how much Gabi and Zoë will also have blossomed by this point.

If your roots give you passion, enthusiasm and energy, we’d love to help grow your talents. Get in touch with Stewart@zealcreative.com for opportunities at our Manchester or NEW London branches!
