In preparation for our biggest Earth Month yet, we wanted to take a moment to share (brag) about the impact we’ve had during Earth Month in the past.
Last year (2020), we launched our Climate+ program, a growing collection of brands and change-makers who refuse to settle for ‘no harm’, a network of environmental pioneers dedicated to doing good for our planet. Climate+ is the action of going beyond net zero. It means doing more than just offsetting carbon emissions – we’re creating an environmental benefit by removing additional carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.
We made Climate+ packages you can purchase that plant trees to offset your daily pleasures like extra-steamy showers, avocado toast, and weekend getaways. Beyond offsetting carbon emissions, Climate+ rehabilitates ecosystems and provides jobs across the globe. With the help of our partners and our community, we planted 185,050 trees through Climate+ for Earth Day in 2020. That’s ~57,086 tonnes of CO2 absorbed from the atmosphere. Want to know more about Climate+? Read more about it here.
In 2019, our Earth Day campaign went viral. Our Double Tap To Plant campaign became one of the highest-liked Instagram photos to date and was easily the most sustainable. This campaign resulted in over 500,000 trees being planted (yes, you read that right) — which we calculated was equivalent to removing 100,000 cars from the road each year — and gave homes to 135 endangered species in Indonesia. This was a monumental year for us at tentree, and we need your help to do one better.
This year, we’re back with something extra special that we can’t wait to share with you all. We’ve joined forces with some of the brightest, and most sustainable brands we could think of, to bring you and the planet some good news. With the help of these Planet Partners, we have the lofty goal of planting more trees than any Earth Month in the past, and we need your help to make it happen. Check out how you can help (and get a sneak peek at who we’re partnering with for Earth Month) here.
Earth Month is here to (gently) remind us all that the planet needs our help. Let’s take the momentum that we’ve created the last two years, and build on it. We’re ready and more motivated than ever to plant some trees and make some changes. Want to join us?
