We are proud and happy to announce a partnership with One Tree Planted, which is a non-profit organization with a focus on global reforestation. From now on we will plant a tree through their organization for every cleaning you order from us!
The PhilippinesOver the last century, the Philippines has suffered a staggering amount of deforestation, from some 70% forest coverage down to just 20% today, largely due to illegal logging activities. The impacts of deforestation has been felt throughout the country, causing food shortages, poor water quality, landslides, and the endangering of wildlife habitat. Since the 1990s the Philippines has promoted reforestation efforts to push back against this loss of forest coverage, replanting over 1,000,000 hectares of forest. This project supports those efforts on the island of Mindanao in the protected landscape of Mt. Matutum.
ImpactPlanting trees in the tropical rainforests of Mindanao will improve water quality, create jobs, and protect and revive the livelihoods of indigenous communities surviving off of rainforest conservation. Most significantly, however, planting native tree species will have a remarkable impact on the habitats of several endangered species. The Philippines is home to over 1,000 species of wildlife, nearly half of which are endemic. This project will directly benefit several endangered species including the Philippine Tarsier and Philippine Eagle.
Tree species:To maximize the impact of your donation, our partner will determine the most appropriate species of tree to plant. Popular species include New Guinea Walnut, Anubing, and the incredible Rainbow Eucalyptus.
