    This episode we have something a little bit different as we talk with Karl McGrory, director of Europe at One Tree Planted. As an international nonprofit focused on reforestation, One Tree Planted has garnered widespread support from many sectors, including the pharmaceutical industry. Teckro has partnered with One Tree Planted and contributed to a project in Ireland, home to our HQ. Karl talks about Ireland’s significant deforestation over the centuries and upcoming projects they have around the world.

    “There's an old folklore that said a squirrel could travel from the south of Ireland to the northern tip without touching the ground. That's how forested it was. So, it really is important that we restore some of the trees to that landscape.”
