One tree is planted for every $50 in sales.
Guaranteed one tree minimum per order. Valid for all products, on or off sale. The amount considered is the total of the order before taxes and shipping are added. Valid for other currencies as well, in the equivalent converted amount.
Where are the trees planted?
In Canada. In your province.
Up to mid 2023, we used to plant trees in the Brazilian Atlantic Forest. We've now changed to planting them in Canada in order to help restore the natural habitat lost due to the wildfires that took place this year. Each tree is planted in the province that each order comes from. For example, if you place an order from Ontario, the tree(s) of that order will be planted in Ontario. There are just so many provinces we can choose from One Tree Planted's website, so the trees will be planted in Ontario by default if an order comes from these provinces: Manitoba, Newfoundland and Labrador, Prince Edward Island and Saskatchewan.
Who plants the trees?
The trees are planted by a renowned non-profit organization focused on global reforestation called One Tree Planted.
This amazing organization runs reforestation projects in various crucial endangered ecosystems around the world, including Brazil's Atlantic Forest. In 2021 alone, they planted more than 23 million trees, and this number is growing every year.
By partnering with a trustworthy organization such as this, we rest assured that the resources directed to planting trees will be used appropriately.
Every customer receives a Tree Certificate issued directly from One Tree Planted's website, containing their name. This is done within two weeks of placing an order with us. Please be sure to keep an eye on your email's spam folder as your Tree Certificate may end up there.
Why is it important to plant trees?
Planting trees is one of the most effective ways to counterbalance air pollution while recovering ecosystems degraded by deforestation.
That’s mainly because trees are really good at photosynthesis. They absorb that nasty carbon dioxide (CO2) released into the atmosphere, use it to generate energy for themselves and in the process free up oxygen back into the air.
Trees literally clean the air we breathe.
As if that wasn’t enough, they also provide food and shelter for numerous forms of life. Forests are home to:
- 60,000 different tree species;
- 80% of all amphibian species;
- 75% of bird species;
- 68% of mammal species.
So the reason why deforestation is so impactful to the natural environment is that it decreases Earth's capacity to absorb carbon from the atmosphere while destroying natural habitats.
How can I plant more?
The more trees the better! Check out One Tree Planted's website and learn more about their projects.
Another way to plant trees is to use Ecosia for your online searches. Ecosia is a search engine that donates 80% of its profits to organizations that plant trees. Try it out!
