The profits of the latest auction of a special Samsonite suitcase will also go to the #ItStartsWithUs project.
To celebrate the collaboration with Samsonite and the 106th edition of De Ronde, Quick-Step Alpha Vinyl auctioned a special suitcase last week, with the signature and portrait of Kasper Asgreen. The profits netted 610 euros which will go directly to the #ItStartsWithUs reforestation project in France, giving an extra push in the right direction for the climate.
With this amount and the profits of last year’s auction of a beautiful Tarmac SL7, Quick-Step Alpha Vinyl co-financed one of the first Label Bas Carbone projects in France together with CO2logic. The project was labeled successfully starting in 2022 and enabled the reforestation of 2.9 ha in Saint-Jean-Sur-Vilaine, a village located in northwestern France. More than 3000 trees have already been planted using different tree species as sessile oak, beech, wild apple trees and tulip tree, which will improve the local biodiversity and the provision of food for the local fauna such as small mammals, wild boars and deer.
Quick-Step Alpha Vinyl wants to thank all the fans and their partners for the big support. Stay tuned for upcoming projects for our climate, because #ItStartsWithUs!
