Fastrak® and ZAP™ – Growing Greener Together

It was way back in 2009 that the first seed of Alpha Laboratories’ tree planting scheme, LaboraTree, was sown.

Thanks to the dedicated LaboraTree members, over 1,500 trees have now been planted across the country and are helping make a difference to our environment. The trees planted by LaboraTree members have helped to consume CO2, clean up pollution, generate oxygen and provide vital habitats for wildlife.

Since LaboraTree began the problems of pollution and the pressures on our environment have escalated and addressing them is becoming ever more important. So, on this 10-year anniversary, we thought we should do more – with your help.

To celebrate 10 years of LaboraTree we are extending the scheme to include ZAP™ Premier filter tips in addition to Fastrak® tip refills. ZAP Filter Tips are Fastrak’s sister product. And, just like Fastrak they are made with sunshine too! In fact over 30% of the energy needed to make ZAP tips comes directly from solar panels. They make the perfect green tip combination as ZAP tip boxes can be refilled with Fastrak tips, enabling them to be re-used again and again.

Now you’ll start to see LaboraTree tokens on ZAP tip packs in addition to Fastrak tip refills. This extra way to collect tokens will speed up collector’s card completion and help plant more trees. So there's never been a better time to join the LaboraTree scheme!

There are also additional benefits for LaboraTree members collecting ZAP tokens. We will record the cumulative number of ZAP tokens you collect on all your tree planting certificates. For every 100 ZAP tokens collected, you can choose a special, additional, environmentally themed gift for your organisation. Alternatively, you can opt to donate the value of your prize to the Woodland Trust. Just select your preference on your Collector’s Card. Choose from gifts such as a nesting box with camera, water fountain, bird box, bench or picnic table.
