Turn Your Tips into Twice as Many Trees

LaboraTree Planting Scheme Gets Greener 

Your choice of pipette tips can have a positive effect on the environment. Users of Fastrak® tip refills and ZAP™ Premier filter tips, from Alpha Laboratories Ltd benefit from products that are manufactured in an eco-efficient facility that uses renewable resources, reduces energy consumption, eliminates harmful chemicals, and reduces waste and emissions. In addition, the associated LaboraTree scheme plants trees in UK woodlands. LaboraTree has just become even greener, as now you need to collect half as many tip tokens per tree, meaning more trees get planted to benefit the environment.

Alpha Laboratories launched its LaboraTree scheme 11 years ago and to date has planted over 2400 trees. As part of the company's expanding sustainability strategy, LaboraTree has relaunched in 2022 with an updated look, and now only 15 tokens are needed to qualify for each tree to be planted. For the same number of pipette tips used in the lab, members can now contribute twice as many trees for a greater environmental benefit.

Alpha Laboratories works with tree planting partners like The Woodland Trust and EFORESTS to ensure the optimal species of trees and locations are used for the most positive impact on the local environment across the UK. Volunteers work to ensure the trees are planted and maintained properly to live to maturity.

LaboraTree allows members to collect tokens on purchases of Fastrak® pipette tip refills and ZAP™ Premier filter tips, which are both made using 30% power from solar panels and come in minimal and recyclable packaging.

You can find out how the scheme works and view the tree planting progress on the Alpha Laboratories website.
