BugSplat is very proud to partner with One Tree Planted in its mission to help replant trees and combat deforestation.
One Tree Planted is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit dedicated to global reforestation. Their mission is to reforest the planet, one tree at a time. Every $1 donated helps plant one tree. It's that simple. They also raise awareness about the importance of trees, offer businesses like ours a simple sustainability solution, and motivate younger generations to do something positive for the environment.
One Tree Planted does fantastic work around the world. They have planting projects in four global regions—North America, Latin America, Asia, and Africa—and 18 different countries.
In 2018, they were able to offset 28,312 metric tonnes of C02 by restoring 2,500 acres of forest around the world by planting 1.3 million trees. Their goal for 2019 is to plant 4 million trees, and we're excited to be part of the effort.
In addition to all of this great work, One Tree Planted also has a direct local impact in Colorado—our home.
Their work here helps to protect our water supply, reduce the impact of forest fires, preserve our beautiful wild spaces, and more. You can follow these links to learn more about Colorado forest management and what One Tree Planted has done to help in Colorado.
This local impact makes our partnership even more of a 'no-brainer' for our team.
Like many in Colorado, we work hard and we play hard. Our team is into skiing, mountain biking, hiking, and camping. All these activities benefit from beautiful and well-managed mountain forests.
During Earth Day in 2018, the One Tree Planted Team planted 7,000 trees in Fourmile Canyon in Boulder, Colorado. Fourmile was burned in 2010 and the wildfire ended up consuming 5,700 acres. It’s a big burn that some members of our team can actually see from their homes. And all of our team have driven and biked through it many times. Working to reforest the area is a project we get excited about.
Working to improve the land by replanting trees is awesome. We love this ultra local impact and are looking forward to helping expand One Tree Planted's reach. See the event in the video below.
How we're helping
So here's the deal—for every new BugSplat plan sold, we are going to help One Tree Planted plant trees.
The larger the plan you purchase from BugSplat, the more trees we will donate to One Tree Planted!
We'll post additional updates here on our Blog as our relationshipship with One Tree Planted grows (sorry for the pun).
