Trees Are Vital
Our planet was created to thrive with healthy forests. In addition to including some of the most biodiverse ecosystems in the world, forests provide oxygen while absorbing carbon dioxide. They also provide nutrients and stability to soil to help the growth of other plants and are key to the water cycle. Deforestation is one of the world’s most urgent, ongoing threats.
Half of the world’s tropical forests have already been cleared and at the rate we’re going, in less than a century there will be no more rainforests. We are working to reverse this. To date, Plant With Purpose has planted over 28 million trees around the world and has had an important role in halting deforestation. While the earth loses forest cover, the opposite is true in places where we work.
