1% for the Planet is proud to honor One Tree Planted as the People for the Planet Nonprofit Partner Changemaker of 2019! One Tree Planted makes a long-lasting, positive impact on people and the planet with one simple action: planting trees. By planting trees throughout North America, Latin America, Asia, Australia and Africa, One Tree Planted restores vital habitats, decreases pollution, protects wildlife, strengthens local economies and so much more.
One Tree Planted is a nonprofit organization that plants one tree for every dollar donated as they work toward global reforestation. They are on a mission to make it easy for businesses, schools and individuals to make a positive environmental impact by planting trees all over the world.
IN 2019, ONE TREE PLANTED PLANTED 4 MILLION TREES, AND HAS ALREADY COMMITTED TO PLANTING 6.4 MILLION TREES IN 2020.
One Tree Planted ensures that all trees planted are appropriate species for each location, then maintains and monitors the trees for long term survival and lasting impact. Through this strategy, One Tree Planted responds to climate disasters in a positive way that has a tangible environmental, economic and social impact both locally and globally.
Through reforestation, One Tree Planted recovered burned, flooded and drought-ridden lands, saved Orca populations in the Pacific Northwest, restored forests, revived communities and local economies, and educated people on the importance of giving back to the environment to combat climate change. On top of numerous programs that help plant trees all over the world, they also offer a free environmental curriculum for students of all ages and employee engagement sessions. One Tree Planted is committed to empowering communities with long-term solutions to our environmental crisis.
One Tree Planted’s commitment to the planet has brought about so much positive change that will continue to benefit people and the planet for years to come. This nonprofit goes beyond conservation to provide people with the tools they need to protect and plant trees. The world is a better place when we are empowered to act, and One Tree Planted is empowering communities to build a better future from the ground up.
