Why Public Goods Plants a Tree With Every Order

Trees are the lungs of our planet, as well as an essential source of food.

They provide habitats for many of the creatures that fuel both our environment and agriculture. Without them, we could not breathe, and we would be unable to absorb much of the carbon dioxide that contributes to climate change.

Despite the fact that we need trees, we are cutting them down to clear land for unsustainable industries or real estate developments. In an interview with Yale Environment 360, University of Arkansas researcher Philip Curtis estimated that the production of commodity crops, such as palm oil, destroys 12.4 millions acres of forests every year.

When the 2019 Amazon wildfires began, our team at Public Goods realized we had to do something. After many hours of research and conversations with representatives from the world’s top environmental nonprofits, we decided on a simple yet effective solution: planting as many trees as we could afford.

To make this vision a reality, we partnered with Eden Reforestation Projects. For more than a decade the organization has restored forests in areas that are vital in the fight against global warming. This noble work of tree planting also becomes a source of income for local communities.

Every time someone orders Public Goods products or signs up for one of our email lists, we send Eden a little money to plant a tree. This month our goal is to fund the planting of 100,000 trees!

Currently we are one of Eden’s “Seedling Partners,” but we can plan on becoming a “Forest Level Partner.” With your help, we can do our part to plant the two trillion trees Eden needs to restore crucial forests in Haiti, Indonesia, Kenya, Madagascar, Mozambique and Nepal.
