ONE TREE PER MAT



ONE TREE PLANTED PER MAT

YOGO has planted over 22,100 forest garden trees through our "one for one" Food Trees program. 

With every yoga mat you purchase, YOGO provides a food-bearing tree plus restorative agroforestry training and supplies for a poor family through our partner NGO.  

Trees for the Future has completed over 30 years of forestry work and is currently working along their local staff in African countries Cameroon, Kenya, Senegal, Uganda, and Tanzania. Their their long term programs address the real root of deforestation in these areas, poverty by fully equiping farmers to produce food, restore the environment, and create goods for sale.

TFF works for five years with each family to provide sustainable agriculture and other training so that each family can independently and permanently feed themselves and farm in a way that restores the environment. “Forest gardens” revitalize degraded land and help avoid deforestation in tropical areas.

In addition to planting a tree per mat, YOGO also offers the ability to buy individual trees for $1 apiece!
