You fill the TreeMachine. We plant one tree. Over 1 Million Trees Planted Worldwide.
In partnership with Trees for the Future, a non-profit based in Maryland, USAgain plants a tree every time the TreeMachine is full, allowing us to support communities in developing countries in the fight against Global Warming and the Climate Crisis. Together we have planted more than 1 million trees since 2013.
Trees help restore the environment, mitigate the Climate Crisis and create a greener earth for future generations. When trees are planted with food crops this is called agroforestry and it helps people increase their crop yields to grow their own food and build sustainable incomes for their families by producing and selling a surplus. The program helps in creating sustainable sources of crop shade, soil rehabilitation, food, windbreaks, medicine, mudslide control and more for communities that need them.
Trees for the Future works in six Sub-Saharan countries where they have strong on-the-ground personnel and numerous clusters of farmers motivated to join the program. Though they have planted trees in 60 countries, they are actively replicating a pathway out of poverty in Senegal, Cameroon, Kenya, Tanzania, Guinea, and Uganda. They work with farmers living below the poverty line, struggling to feed their families with the one or few crops they raise on increasingly degraded land.
