Why trees?

There are an estimated 60,000 different tree species on Earth. Faced with the threat of deforestation, more than 8,000 of these tree species are in decline. Trees play several important roles that benefit us, our biodiversity and the climate. They absorb harmful carbon dioxide (CO2) from the atmosphere, filtering the air we breathe. In a single year, a mature tree will absorb up to 48 pounds of carbon dioxide gas (CO2) from the atmosphere. Trees also help to regulate our diseases, clean the water we drink, and provide a habitat for more than 80% of the world’s terrestrial biodiversity.

The threat!

Forests cover around 1/3 of all land on Earth, but every year 15 billion trees are cut down around the world. We have already lost 46% of the worlds historic forests, and currently, 15% of global greenhouse gas emissions are the result of deforestation. Global industrialisation, agriculture, logging and infrastructure are all encroaching on the natural world.

Our pledge.

We must work together to rebuild our forests if we are to protect our planet from climate change. Therefore, we are proud to be working with One Tree Planted, reforesting our planet by planting one tree for every order placed at Eco Earth Market. This year we are supporting the Australian koala project by One Tree Planted. Australia has witnessed unprecedented wildfires in the past year, where 12.6 million hectares of forest burned, releasing an estimated 434 million tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2) into the atmosphere. The Australian forests are the seventh largest forest area in the world and provide important habitats to wildlife. Unfortunately, these recent wildfires took the lives of more than 1 billion animals. When you shop with us, together we are fighting back against deforestation and providing vital habitats for Australian wildlife.

What is the tree planting process?

When you place an order at our market we will notify One Tree Planted and pay them for the planting of 1 tree in your name. One Tree Planted will then schedule the planting of your tree for the upcoming planting season in Australia.

The four main stages to planting your tree!

  1. The site of plantation is prepared to make sure the land is suitable for planting trees.
  2. Tree saplings are grown and nurtured in a tree nursery until they are ready to be planted.
  3. When the tree saplings are ready, they are transported to the prepared site and planted by hand.
  4. To ensure the success of the plantation, the new trees will be carefully monitored and looked after.

How do I know you planted my tree?

After your order has been processed and dispatched you will receive a Tree Planting E-Certificate, awarded by One Tree Planted. We place our tree orders with One Tree Planted every month, therefore it can take up to 30 days from the date of your order to receive your certificate. If it has been more than 30 days and you have not received your certificate, please email us at: orders@ecoearthmarket.com
