Forests play a vital role in storing and releasing carbon from the atmosphere and they help to regulate and maintain Earth's carbon balance. Trees also help maintain nutrient-rich soil for other plants to grow, provide shelter and habitat for animals, and contribute significantly to the global water cycle. With every purchase we will plant a tree on your behalf at no cost to you. We work with a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization founded in Vermont. The team has reforestation partners all over the world.
