We are working with One Tree Planted!
One Tree Planted is an environmental charity dedicated to making it easier for individuals and businesses to give back to the environment, fight climate change, protect biodiversity and help reforestation efforts around the world. All by planting trees!
Started in 2014, they have more than doubled the number of trees planted year over year. Fast-forward to today, they now work with awesome reforestations partners in North America, South America, Asia, and Africa who help get trees in the ground to restore forests after fires and floods, create jobs, build communities, and protect habitat for biodiversity.
Why we love trees so much
Trees help clean the air we breathe, filter the water we drink, and provide habitat to over 80% of the world's terrestrial biodiversity. They also provide jobs to over 1.6 billion people, absorb harmful carbon from the atmosphere, and are key ingredients in 25% of all medicines.
In 2018, One Tree Planted were able to get more trees in the ground than ever before - 1.3 million!
Planting typically happens in the rainy season when the soil is wet and provides optimal conditions for tree survival. Partners are vetted to ensure a tree survival rate of 80-90% is maintained.
“When I started One Tree Planted in 2014, my goal was simple: make it easy for people to understand the importance of trees and make it even easier to get trees in the ground. I wanted to highlight the important work these planting organizations were doing, and get more businesses looking at tree planting as a way to give back.” Matt Hill, Founder
We can’t wait to start planting!
