One Tree Planted is a non profit organisation that works directly with reforestation groups around the world to replenish Earth’s trees and forests. With over 80% of the World’s forests sadly already destroyed, their work is in invaluable to reduce this figure and rebuild precious forest ecosystems.
Trees are so important to us humans and our planet – they clean the air we breathe and the water we drink, they preserve global biodiversity, provide a livelihood for billions of people and are vital to control the climate.
Together with One Tree Planted we have pledged to plant one tree for every single order on our website – sewing our seeds in Indonesia. We are so pleased to know that every product you purchase on our site will help to protect our planet, as well as its wildlife and communities.
Indonesia’s forests are a treasure chest of wildlife. The country is home t0 between 10 and 15 percent of the world’s known plants, mammals, and birds. But in the last 50 years, more than 74 million hectares of Indonesian rainforest have been lost —an area twice the size of Germany.
Deforestation shrinks the habitat of native species like the orangutan, and diminishes a source of shelter, food, and livelihood for millions of people. It’s also bad news for carbon emissions. Peatlands store a whopping 35 billion tons of carbon. When bulldozed and replaced with plantations, thousands of tons of harmful carbon dioxide are released into the atmosphere, contributing to greenhouse gases and increasing the risk of forest fires.
