We are super excited to officially launch our Food Trees for Poverty program—a collaboration with carefully selected NGOs Trees for the Future and Sustainable Harvest International—that helps improve the quality of life for impoverished families in developing nations across the globe.
Food Trees for Poverty (through partner NGOs) will donate and plant one tree per yoga mat in an African or Latin American country including Cameroon, Kenya, Senegal, Uganda, Tanzania, Belize, Honduras, and Panama. In addition to providing trees and farming supplies, our partner NGOs Trees for the Future and Sustainable Harvest International will work for five years with each family to provide sustainable agriculture and other training so that each family can independently and permanently feed and provide income for themselves. The NGOs also hire locally, providing long-term skills transferred to each region.
By promoting restorative agriculture, the program presents a double-impact of healing the environment and providing long term solutions for helping poor families help themselves.
Environmental benefits include an estimated one ton of sequestered carbon for each tree planted over its lifetime, in Latin America avoided deforestation of the rainforest; in Africa arid and degraded areas are converted into sustainable farmland.
Beginning August 1, we will donate one tree for every yoga mat purchase and provide supplies and sustainable agriculture farming to families for five years through our partner NGOs.
|To help celebrate this launch, we’re offering 20% off all purchases made before August 16 using code TREES|
