Trees are the biggest plants on the earth, but their grandeur is not the only thing that sets them apart from the rest.
Trees provide oxygen, they provide shade, they provide homes for wildlife, food for wildlife, food for humans and material for humans to build our own shelter.
They store carbon, and stabilize the soil; and that is just the tip of the iceberg (but icebergs are for another day)
Trees are awesome. We love trees, and most importantly, we need trees.
Studies show that being exposed to trees and forests will boost your immune system, lower your blood pressure, improve your mood + reduce stress, increase energy, improve sleep, increase your ability to focus, and accelerate recovery from illness and even surgery!
Trees absorb carbon dioxide as they grow, and this stored carbon reduces the overall concentration of greenhouse gases, and helps to slow the rate of global warming - Trees combat climate change!
They absorb dust and they are natural air conditioners, which gives them the ability to actually conserve energy.
Did you know one mature oak tree, can be a home to as many as 500 different species?
I really, could, go on and on.
We need trees.
We all need trees.
Which is why we are partnering with One Tree Planted, a non-profit, to plant 1 tree for every. single. purchase. And we don’t plan on stopping anytime soon.
This is our gift to you, our loyal customers, and to the planet.
One Tree Planted plants trees in North America, Latin America, Asia, Australia & Africa. It is important to us to support this global brand, since we all need trees, and we're in this together. Since 2014 One Tree Planted has more than doubled the number of trees planted year over year. Giving back to the environment is helping to get trees in the ground to restore forests after fires and floods, create jobs, build communities and protect habitat for biodiversity.
If you would like to make a separate contribution on your own, or are interested in learning more about their initiative, you can do so at onetreeplanted.org
Lets show some trees some love.
and if you’re really feeling it, maybe hug one.
