doing good, made simple.
For every tip you leave, one tree will be planted. Together we can restore forests, create habitats for biodiversity, and make a positive social impact around the world, in partnership with One Tree Planted.
It’s thought there are three trillion trees in the world. While that might sound like a lot, most of them are in the tropics. We’re removing around 15 billion a year – and only replanting around five billion. Trees are the key pillars of the world for both humans and the environment. Key benefits of planting trees:
CLEANING THE AIR
Trees are often referred to as the ‘lungs of the planet’ as they produce oxygen. In urban environments, trees absorb pollutant gases and sweep up particles like dust and smoke. Healthy, strong trees act as carbon sinks, offset carbon, reducing the effects of climate change.
Trees play a key role in capturing rainwater and reducing the risk of natural disasters. Their intricate root systems act like filters, removing pollutants and slowing down the water’s absorption into the soil, preventing waterslide erosion and reducing the risk of flooding.
FIGHTING CLIMATE CHANGE
Trees help cool the planet by sucking in and storing harmful greenhouse gases like carbon dioxide into their trunks, branches, and leaves — and releasing oxygen back into the atmosphere. In cities, trees can reduce ambient temperatures by up to 8° Celsius.
