It's no secret that we love nature around here at Glotanicals. Nature and the people who love it are the number one inspiration behind our brand and a part of our business model was always to find impactful ways to give back and help to heal our planet. So, we're so thrilled to share that we’re partnering with One Tree Planted to plant a tree for every single Glotanicals product sold.
Fighting climate change is a monumental task, but one key solution is both stopping the further destruction of nature and restoring what has already been lost. That's where One Tree Planted comes in. One Tree Planted is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit dedicated to global reforestation. They plant trees around the globe to restore nature and biodiversity. 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. They are doing some EPIC work in the world to restore nature and we are so proud and honored to be able to contribute to their work.
Specifically, we have chosen to plant one tree for every product sold and to support reforestation projects in both countries we operate: Australia and the United States.
Planting Trees In Australia
With over 123 million hectares of native forests, Australia has the seventh largest forest area in the world, making up three per cent of the Earth’s forests. These forests are unique and varied – ranging from ancient Gondwana rainforest and tropical mangroves to extensive bush lands made up of native acacia, melaleuca and eucalyptus trees. Supporting this project helps to plant millions of trees across Australia to recover forests affected by the 2019-20 Black Summer Bushfires and restore native habitat vital for wildlife.
Planting Trees in the Appalachians
Appalachia is one of America's most beautiful and renowned regions, and it's also where our founder Kat grew up and where we are currently headquartered. Home to the namesake Appalachian Trail, more than 150 tree species can be found in the region, making it one of the most diverse ecological regions in North America. Unfortunately, the resource wealth of the region also means much of the forest has been degraded by mining and timber operations. Over the years, an estimated 83% of habitat has been lost. However, with an ever-growing tourism industry environmentally conscious organizations and businesses are stepping up to return the region to its former glory.
