Making a world of a difference—one tree at a time
Every time you purchase a Forest Remedies product, you’re not just making a positive impact on your health and wellness— you’re helping create a healthier, more sustainable future for everyone. For every product sold, we contribute to the planting of a tree through our partnership with One Tree Planted, a non-profit organization dedicated to rebuilding forests across the globe.
At Forest Remedies, we’re passionate about protecting the planet and helping people thrive naturally. The wonderful thing about planting trees is that it helps us do both. Here are six reasons why trees need all the protection they can get. And why we should plant as many more as we can.
Trees clean the air we breathe by absorbing harmful pollutants through their leaves and bark and releasing fresh oxygen.
Trees purify the water we drink, using their roots to filter out toxins. By capturing rainwater, they reduce the risk of natural disasters like floods and landslides.
A single tree can be home to hundreds of species of plants, animals and insects. Without trees, forest creatures would have nowhere to call home.
Trees provide countless job opportunities around the globe, as well as essential nutrition from fruits, nuts and berries. Sustainable tree farming provides timber to build homes and wood for cooking and heating.
Trees help reduce our stress and anxiety and allow us to reconnect with nature. Studies show that hospital patients with rooms overlooking trees recover faster than those without the same view.
Trees help cool the planet by sucking in and storing harmful greenhouse gases like carbon dioxide.
