One Tree Planted – Support Global Reforestation
One Tree Planted is a non-profit based in Vermont making it simple to plant trees around the world—in North America, South America, Asia, and Africa. Why trees? Trees help clean the air we breathe by absorbing carbon and other harmful pollutants from the atmosphere, reducing the effects of climate change, and then release clean oxygen back for us to breathe. Their roots filter toxins from the water we drink, and prevent soil erosion, landslides and flooding. And trees provide habitat to over 80% of the earth’s biodiversity, with a single tree functioning as home to hundreds of species of insect, fungi, moss, mammals, and plants. Forests also provide jobs to over 1.6 billion people around the world, and offer key ingredients to 25% of all medicines. Did you know Aspirin comes from the bark of a tree. Most of projects supported by One Tree Planted help with restoration from forest fires and floods, while also creating jobs, building communities, and protecting valuable habitats for biodiversity. Planting trees is such a simple and effective way to make an impact. One dollar plants one tree.
