May is Endangered Species Month, and our tree planting partner Eden Projects just shared some cool news with us!
They recently added 13 additional acres of land in Madagascar to use as a conservatory and rehabilitation center for endangered wildlife such as lemurs, crocodiles, tortoises, and chameleons.
I'm a big fan of wildlife conservation like this - dedicating land to use for learning and education about our environment and coexisting with nature.
We're happy to support such a great organization making positive impacts in the world.
Eden Projects helps people get people out of poverty (planting trees), restoring the environment (planting trees) and helping endangered animals (more trees yes!).
Eden Projects has planted over 200,000,000 trees on planet Earth.
They hire locals to help plant and care for the trees. They plant in Nepal, Madagascar, Haiti, and Ethiopia. For every sale of our Water Bottles or Leaf Leather Accessories, we donate to plant trees through their organization.
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.
