One Tree Planted:
With each starter set we plant 1 tree in your name.
But how exactly does this tree sponsorship work? Are trees really being planted, and where? Which trees are planted and who plants them? Is my tree written with my name written and can I visit it in 10 years?
Planting trees around the world
The principle is basically quite simple. For every item sold in our range, we give 1$ to our partner organization One Tree Planted at the end of each month. "OTP" is a globally active, non-profit, climate-protecting and non-profit organization from the United States. We maintain a good relationship with its founder Matt Hill, who also regularly puts his hand up during tree planting activities. This non-profit organisation carries out professional plantings of regional tree species several times a year at more than ten locations worldwide. The trees are planted by many volunteers and dedicated helpers from the local society and otP itself. The trees are planted where they have previously disappeared for various reasons such as agriculture, wood industry, habitat or natural events (forest fire, drought, etc.). In addition, a tree is currently being planted in Indonesia for each "Treeanie Coal". These afforestation activities take place as part of BOS Switzerland's One Tree One Life campaign. This non-profit organisation based in Zurich is dedicated to the protection of orangutans and rainforests in Indonesia. Volunteers from Switzerland supported BOS Switzerland in reforenation and fundraising. You travel to Borneo yourself to plant part of your trees by hand. Burnt and destroyed rainforest and peat bog areas in eastern and central Kalimantan are reforested. If you want to get involved yourself, you are welcome!
