I really admire “One Tree Planted” and the work they do, and am so excited to be part of their efforts to help the environment and community. For every piece purchased from Rita’s Rainbow Jewelry’s Enchanted Forest Collection or Tree of Life Collection I make sure one tree is planted by donating to this eco-friendly organization. It is my small but very heart-felt contribution to help our beautiful planet.
One Tree Planted is a non-profit 501(c)(3) charity based in Shelburne, Vermont, that helps with global reforestation efforts. They work with reforestation partners around the world to help plant trees in North America, Latin America, Asia and Africa. Their mission is to reforest the planet one tree at a time. By planting trees they are affecting so many things.
There are 6 benefits of reforestation they focus on in their projects.
- Air – Trees take in harmful pollutants and release clean oxygen for us to breathe
- Water – Trees filter water, prevent floods, and maintain Earth’s water cycles
- Biodiversity – Forests provide habitat to many animals, birds, insects, fungi, moss, and plants
- Social Impact – Trees provide jobs and food security to many communities
- Health – Trees and nature reduce stress, aid in recovery, and promote overall wellness
- Climate – Trees absorb carbon dioxide and other pollutants, helping to clean air and regulate climate.
