Trees clean our air and water, create habitats for biodiversity, contribute to our health and wellbeing, and create jobs for social impact. We’re honored to have reforestation through One Tree Planted as an integral part of our business model.
One Tree Planted is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit dedicated to global reforestation. They plant trees to restore nature and biodiversity. They also raise awareness about the importance of trees, offer businesses like ours a simple sustainability solution, and motivate younger generations to do something positive for the environment.
What will you be planting?
We are mainly focused on planting Avicennia alba, a mangrove species that can withstand about 5 hours of submergence in salty water. Along with the upper and soil-stabilized sites, we will be planting Sonneratia apetala with a variety of other species. Both of these species have lateral roots that aid in the resistance of water impact to lower tidal currents.
When you support us you are supporting:
- Restore biodiversity in marine ecosystems
- Increase capacity for 5-10x more carbon storage
- Protect coastal communities from rising sea levels & storm surges
Mangroves play a vital part in our tropical and subtropical ecosystems. Found where the ocean meets land, they protect our coastlines, keep our beaches beautiful, restore biodiversity in marine ecosystems, and store 5 to 10 times more carbon than land ecosystems. However, like many other tree species, mangroves are at risk. Some estimate that approximately 1% of our mangroves are lost yearly, posing a major threat to coastline communities. With your donation, we can restore our mangrove forests to protect vulnerable communities from rising sea levels and storm surges while also preventing soil erosion.
