Many of our tree-planting projects are led by women, and many of our trees – in Kenya, Brazil, and India – are planted by them. This improves women's social position, provides them with a salary, or gives them the opportunity to sell tree products, such as fruits, nuts, or arabic gum. This alternative source of income leads to more independence, and helps them cover school fees and medical bills. In rural areas, trees also help women tackle a range of daily challenges — by providing branch-wood, improving the quality of local water sources, and increasing the resiliency of their farms. In the end, the entire community benefits.
- 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.
