Trees For The Future
With every purchase, we plant a tree through Trees For The Future.
Why Trees For The Future.
We picked Trees For The Future because we believe they have found a way to attack multiple problems with one solution: tree planting. Through their tree-planting efforts they are are able to help maintain a healthy ecosystem in multiple regions, reduce carbon emissions into the atmosphere, and provide for those living in poverty. Because of this Trees For The Future undoubtedly seemed like a great non-profit to support.
From Their Website
In the early 1970’s, Dave and Grace Deppner served as volunteers in the Philippines, where they witnessed the human tragedy brought on by illegal logging and unsustainable land management systems. Working with community leaders in nearby villages, the Deppners found a way to offer hope. They revitalized lands by providing farmers with tree seeds, technical training and on-site planning assistance.
After returning to the U.S. from their overseas assignments they continued what they had started, communicating by mail with the project leaders and providing seeds, information and training materials. On August 14, 1989, Trees for the Future was incorporated as a public charity. Since then Trees has planted over 115 million trees in dozens of countries and revitalized hundreds of thousands of acres of soil while changing people’s lives forever.
