We plant trees that will absorb CO2 and multiply those benefits to our planet as we continue to plant more and more trees on your behalf. A study by The National Academy of Sciences states that reforestation is the most scalable, deployable form of technology to fight climate change today. According to IPCC, one-third of the global emissions since 1750 have come from deforestation. Your business will be recognized as a good environmental citizen with a goal of creating a sustainable food and beverage industry.
We work with world-class forestry managers to create long term, certified carbon offsets and will purchase some certified carbon offsets to immediately provide environmental benefits while our young trees grow. One acre of hardwood forest can absorb one metric ton of CO2 per year.
We work with your point of sale provider to place an easy “Round Up to Plant Trees” line item at check out and meet with your staff to educate them on the benefits of this program for your business and the environment. We provide incentives to keep your staff involved and enthusiastic.
Our goal is to invest at least 80% of proceeds into planting trees and purchasing certified carbon offsets. Our offsets will be registered with the American Carbon Registry, which is funded by the Rockefeller Foundation and easily identifiable for you and your customers.
We partner with the world’s top forestry organizations to plants trees domestically with an accurate accounting of planting numbers and ongoing growth. We buy only certified carbon offsets.
U.S. forestry restoration alone employs over 126,000 Americans, and generates nearly $20 billion in annual domestic economic output.
The power to change the world, to clean the air, to purify water, and to give hope to humanity comes from the simple act of planting trees and maintaining healthy forests. Trees are nature's solution to rising temperatures, increased flooding, and pollution control.
Trees are the green infrastructure that will hold our soils in place, clean our streams and rivers, purify the air we breathe, and shrink our industrious nation's carbon footprint. Trees provide the bridge to a low carbon world. We need trees and, in fact, new forests, on a scale. New forests, grown and managed to achieve thriving density, depend on expert planning, soil analysis, and proven best management practices in forestry.
