Our mission is to plant more trees on this beautiful planet to help make the world a better place. We've always planted trees on sales, but today we're showing our appreciation for the Earth by planting 2,500 extra trees!
Tree Tribe has now planted over 20,000 trees in our young history, and we're shooting for 100,000 trees this year.
As we grow, we'll keep expanding and diversifying our tree planting efforts around the world. The 2,500 trees planted today for Earth Day marks the start of our newest tree planting partnership, Eden Reforestation Projects. They do both reforestation and agroforestry, planting trees and bringing people out of poverty by employing locals in the communities where the trees are planted. The 2,500 trees today go specifically to reforestation in Haiti, which has lost 98% of it's original forests. Eden has planted over 125,000,000 trees in 4 countries, WHOA!. For more info on them, check out edenprojects.org.
We also want to give a shoutout to our tree planting partner from the start, Trees for the Future. They focus on agroforestry to help communities AND the Earth, and are planting millions of trees for Earth Day, WOW! Check them out at trees.org.
Have a cool day!
Did you know that the average US household produces 4.4 pounds of trash a day? That adds up to over a ton per household per year!
The statistics are scary, but the solution doesn’t have to be. Going zero waste is one of the most impactful and rewarding decisions you can personally make for the health of the planet.
Plastic Free July has quickly arrived, and here at Tree Tribe, it has us doing a deep dive into ways we can do better for the planet.
But first, what exactly is Plastic Free July? Plastic Free July is a movement born out of a global call for each of us to be part of the solution to plastic pollution and see a world without its damaging effects.
