Whoever you are, wherever you live, you need access to clean water. And yet, for an increasing number of people, access to drinking water is not a given. Trees help. They prevent soil erosion from polluting rivers and streams. They release water through their leaves, driving rainfall. Their roots loosen the earth, helping it absorb and filter rainwater, which, in turn, feeds underground reservoirs. That's why we partner with local communities to plant trees around critical water sources – along the banks of the Daka river in Ghana, surrounding aquifers in Mexico, and next to water catchments in Kenya. The result? Cleaner, more abundant water – and healthier, happier people.
- After you’ve completed your purchase, we’ll email you a beautiful (and printable) certificate that highlights your cause and the number of trees you bought. It makes a great gift!
Your payment will be added to our tree fund (parked at ethical banks GLS and Triodos) that will be used to plant trees in the near future.
