Planting trees that make a difference.
With every product purchased,
you can plant 5 trees.
Deforestation directly contributes to near 12% of all greenhouse gas emissions.
Mature trees store carbon in their branches, trunks, leaves, and roots, and the forests themselves store large amounts of carbon in their soil. When forests are leveled, much of this carbon is released in the form or CO2, a climate change driving greenhouse gas.
When we cut down forests, we're not only losing trees that actively remove CO2, we're also releasing stored carbon into our atmosphere.
Forests are among the planet's most biologically diverse ecosystems.
A square kilometer of forest may be home to more than 1,000 species! Loss of these habitats does not only eliminate trees, but also destroys homes.
The main cause of deforestation is agriculture - namely, cattle ranching, growing livetock feed (like soy) and farming palm oil. Drilling and mining not only require direct clearing of forests, but also generate mass pollution that damages local ecosystems.
We've helped fund projects around the globe, including the USA, Brasil, Kenya, Australia, Nepal, Madagascar, and others.
