One Tree Planted - Upward Look at forest trees

We care deeply about the planet and creating a business that gives back to nature. That’s why we are thrilled to share that we partnered with One Tree Planted.

We at LOCAL Life have partnered with One Tree Planted, a nonprofit focused on global reforestation, with a goal of planting more than 5,000 trees to restore and enhance local landscapes. The objectives of this initiative are to support North American reforestation initiatives, to inspire sustainable actions among LOCAL Life readers and local businesses and to raise awareness about the importance of ecosystem restoration. Planting trees is widely recognized as one of the most effective strategies for combating the adverse effects of climate change. Trees play a vital role in purifying the air we breathe, filtering the water we consume and providing habitats for over 80 percent of the world’s terrestrial biodiversity. Additionally, trees have a profound social impact, generating employment for over 1.6 billion people, empowering women in underdeveloped regions and assisting communities affected by environmental degradation. “We are thrilled for the opportunity to collaborate with LOCAL Life magazine on this significant project,” said Matt Hill, founder and chief environmental evangelist of One Tree Planted. “We greatly appreciate the company’s dedication to planting trees to counterbalance its environmental footprint.”

One tree is equivalent to two central air conditioners
It takes 460 trees to absorb the annual CO2 emissions of a single car
It requires 7 to 8 mature trees to provide enough oxygen for one person each year
Phytoplankton produce a staggering 70% of earth's oxygen
Tropical tree cover loss is now causing more emissions every year than 85 million cars would over their entire lifetime
