Why One Tree Planted?
It’s up to us to help rectify the impact our modern lives have on Earth so that life can continue to thrive here for as long as possible.
The easiest way to do that is to find opportunities in our everyday circumstances that can make a difference.
We may not be able to volunteer our time, donate thousands of dollars each month, or actively seek out how we can ‘do good’. We can, however, partner with organisations like One Tree Planted to make sure that when we buy or sell services for our businesses, we are making a small but mighty contribution to the world we live in.
Trees play an absolutely pivotal role in our environment, as you can see in the infographic below:
The problem is, 80% of the world’s forests are already destroyed.
Which essentially means we are all in very big trouble because deforestation affects us directly, even if it doesn’t feel that way right now (go watch the Netflix documentary One Strange Rock – it illustrates the point perfectly).
If you’d like to learn more about the rates and impacts of deforestation on our Earth, you can read the tree facts on the One Tree Planted website, then take a look at the ‘Maps’ tab for a frightening view of how our forests are reducing year by year.
When you buy a first-time or additional service from Trusted Online Marketer, I donate to plant 40 new trees in countries around the world.
