If you follow the news at all, you might get the impression that Canada and the United States are more divided than ever. In light of Canada Day and Independence Day, we see an opportunity for both countries to come together to make a positive impact. By purchasing an item, you are able to plant 10 trees in either Canada or the US. Together, all of US CAN help contribute to a brighter tomorrow.
Our better together collection is inspired by, and dedicated to, the beautiful landscapes of our home countries. This new capsule features two graphics that feature monumental geographical locations from both Canada and the United States.
The river graphic
This design features iconic landscapes from the United States and Canada, joined by descriptions of each landmark that make a river, joining our two countries together. The river provides facts about where each site is, how tall the mountains are, as well as fun facts about each location.
The together graphic
The together graphic shows two iconic landmarks from USA and Canada, Peyto Lake, located in Alberta, Canada and the Half Dome at Yosemite in the United States. Together, forming one united mountain range signifying our togetherness among nations.
The trees from our better together collection will be planted throughout Canada and the United States. By helping us plant a variety of native tree species, you will be contributing to the restoration of forest health, protecting important habitats, and helping endangered tree species recover.
For example, we will be planting white oak trees in Oregon, which have been depleted of important resources like sunlight and nutrients due to flourishing dominant species. But get this… white oak trees have a fire-resistant bark, meaning they are able to survive exposure to wildfire! As such, they are integral to protecting the health of forests in Oregon, as well as the local wildlife like woodpeckers, owls, and squirrels.
