One Tree Planted: Partnering for change
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.
It's why we partnered with One Tree Planted, a nonprofit environmental charity working hard to rebuild forests across the globe.
Since 2014, they’ve planted more than 16 million trees throughout North America, Latin America, Africa, Asia, Europe and the Pacific.
Why trees need our help
Trees are essential for life. Here are a few more reasons trees need all the protection they can get.
Trees clean the air we breath by absorbing harmful pollutants 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 floods and landslides.
A single tree can be home to hundreds of species of plants, animals and insects. Without trees, forest creatures would have no home.
Trees provide countless jobs around the globe and essential nutrition from fruits, nuts and berries. Sustainable tree farming provides timber for homes and wood for cooking and heating.
Trees help reduce our stress, anxiety and allow us 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 absorbing and storing harmful greenhouse gases like carbon dioxide.
