Why plant trees?
Because they change lives. They provide food, forage for animals, and wood for fuel and construction. They increase agricultural yields, improve water infiltration and aquifer recharge, and protect soils from wind and water erosion.
Forests are the lungs of our world, drawing in carbon dioxide and providing clean oxygen. Not only do they act as natural air purifiers but they provide important habitats for animals, insects and humans, as well as being places of immense beauty and natural wonder.
Forests also help mitigate climate change. It has never been more crucial to save trees, and plant more.
We have partnered with Trees For the Future to develop our own Plant a Tree program. For every product purchased on our website a tree will be planted.
Trees for the Future (TREES) is an international development nonprofit that meets a triple bottom line by planting trees: poverty alleviation, hunger eradication, and healing the environment. Through their Forest Garden Approach they train farmers to plant and manage Forest Gardens that sustainably feed families, raise their incomes by 400 percent, and end deforestation. TREES receives donations to implement their work in areas where they can have the greatest impact. They currently work across 5 countries in Sub-Saharan Africa: Cameroon, Kenya, Senegal, Tanzania, and Uganda. Since 1989, TREES has planted over 160 million trees.
