40,000 Trees Planted (and counting)...
Words by Co-Founder & Chief Pioneer, Cam Greenwood.
This past weekend our fun tree counter on our website (look above), surpassed 40,000 trees planted. At first glance, even for us, it's easy to just view these trees as a number. But I challenged myself this morning to stop and imagine how many trees that actually is, and I thought to myself, "that's a whole lotta trees!"
We've been able to make this happen through our partners at Eden Reforestation Projects. Since our inception in August 2019, every purchase of a Zorali product has planted ten new trees in areas that need them the most, like Nepal, Madagascar, Haiti, Indonesia, Mozambique, and Kenya. And as each of these trees grow, local employment will too as all trees are planted by a team of local workers.
Why Trees and Why Eden Projects?
Planting trees is now one of the best ways to tackle rising temperatures and climate change. Trees absorb carbon dioxide which means they can help to stop rising temperatures around the world. They also keep soil moist and reduce the risk of flooding.
By working with Eden Projects, we're able to achieve multiple outcomes that go well beyond the tree planting.
