One Tree Planted
One Tree Planted is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit dedicated to their mission of global reforestation one tree at a time. They also raise awareness about the importance of trees, offer businesses like ours a simple sustainability solution, and motivate younger generations to do something positive for the environment. They also offer us a way to achieve our goal of being Climate positive and actually create an environmental benefit by removing additional carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.
One Tree Planted is currently working on reforestation in Africa, North America, Asia, and South America. One Tree Planted works with local partners to plant the correct tree species that ensure high impact and survival rates for the region.
Six pillars of reforestation
Air: Trees are like the vacuums of our planet. Through their leaves and bark, they absorb harmful pollutants and release clean oxygen for us to breathe.
Water: Trees play a key role in capturing rainwater and reducing the risk of natural disasters like floods and landslides.
Biodiversity: A single tree can be home to hundreds of species of insect, fungi, moss, mammals, and plants. Without trees, forest creatures would have nowhere to call home.
Social: From arborists to loggers and researchers, the job opportunities provided by the forestry industry are endless. We don’t just rely on trees for work, though. Sustainable tree farming provides timber to build homes and shelters, and wood to burn for cooking and heating. Food-producing trees provide fruit, nuts, berries, and leaves for consumption by both humans and animals, and pack a powerful nutritional punch.
Health: Trees help reduce stress and anxiety, and allow us to reconnect with nature. In addition, shade provided by tree coverage helps protect our skin from the ever-increasing harshness of the sun.
Climate: Trees help cool the planet by sucking in and storing harmful greenhouse gases like carbon dioxide into their trunks, branches, and leaves — and releasing oxygen back into the atmosphere.
