Did you hear? We planted 50 million trees. And by we, we mean you. Together, we’ve created lasting change with a global impact. Impact that will continue to grow for generations to come. It’s amazing what we can do when we work together. We wanted to take a long pause to let the weight of this milestone sink in. And even more so, to step back and appreciate how lucky we are to have you on our team. All of you, our community, are the reason we’re able to plant trees and reforest our planet. So 10 trees at a time, we’ve planted 50 million.
You might be wondering: “What does 50 million trees actually mean?”. It’s a big number to wrap your head around. But it means so much more than you might think.
To celebrate this milestone and share the impact you’ve made, we made a video.
And to spread the word, we decided to plant a tree for every share. We loved seeing our community share their impact and taking this moment to celebrate. Your shares alone planted an additional 130,082 trees. And you were in great company. Deandre Jordan, SZA, Ava Michelle, and a host of other tree-lovers shared it alongside you. With our partners Eden Projects, Trees for the Future, and Plant with Purpose, those 130,082 trees will be planted in Madagascar, Indonesia, Senegal, and Haiti.
At tentree, we’ve always done things differently. Did you know that 70% of emissions come from only 10 companies? We’re trying to flip that equation on its head by removing emissions from our atmosphere with every purchase you make. How do we do that? You guessed it. Plant trees. We’re on a mission to plant 1 billion trees by 2030, and we can’t do it without you. So let’s keep planting.
