Trees help clean the air we breathe, filter the water we drink, and provide habitat to over 80% of the world's biodiversity. They also absorb harmful gases like carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, and are key ingredients in 25% of all medicines.
Trees are the life force of this planet and one of our most powerful tools against climate change, and we're in great need of more of them! That's why The Spirit Cove will be donating $2 from every sale to reforestation around the world and planting native trees in New Zealand. I'll be doing this through the two charities listed below.
One Tree Planted - Reforestation
One Tree Planted is a non-profit environmental charity on a mission of global reforestation. One dollar (US) equals one tree planted in North America, Latin America, Asia, Europe, Australia, New Zealand, or Africa.
Not only does every donation support a healthier climate by adding more trees and creating habitat for biodiversity, but they also help to provide millions of jobs and strengthen local economies. Every dollar spent on reforestation generates $2.50 of local downstream income and benefits.
Trees That Count - Native Trees
Trees That Count is building a movement to help New Zealanders to plant millions more native trees. It’s about planting the trees that count – for restoring and enhancing our environment, for biodiversity, and for climate change.
Our native trees not only filter our air and water, but they provide habitat for our native birds, better water quality in our streams, and more beautiful places for future generations to explore.
One native tree is planted for every $10 donated.
