Donate $1 directly to our tree planting program?
What a great way to make an even bigger positive impact on our world and lessen your carbon footprint.
Let's improve the world together! For every pantyliner or pad that you purchase a tree will be planted on your behalf. For example:
- Buy 1 pad and we will plant 1 tree
- Buy a full stash package of 18 pads and we will plant 18 trees!
If you'd like to help us even more then please purchase this listing to add $1 that goes directly towards planting extra trees. Now when you purchase cloth pads from Tree Hugger you will be helping the environment by:
(1) Reducing waste when compared to using years worth of disposable feminine protection
(2) Fostering re-forestation by planting trees in a developing nation (where it is needed the most)
We are currently working with WeForest on a much needed project in Madagascar where more Mangrove trees are needed to combat soil erosion and habitat loss.
Tree Hugger customers will be responsible for the planting of thousands of trees each year!
- Trees renew our air supply by absorbing carbon dioxide and producing oxygen.
- Two average size trees produce enough oxygen in one year to keep a family of four breathing.
- Over the course its life, a single tree can absorb one ton of carbon dioxide.
- Tree roots stabilize soil and prevent erosion.
- Trees improve water quality by slowing and filtering rain water, as well as protecting aquifers and watersheds.
- An average American uses about 750 pounds of paper every year, and 95% of homes are built using wood. That means each person uses the equivalent of one 100 foot tall, 16 inch diameter, tree every year for their paper and wood product needs.
