The guiding principals of our company have always been firmly rooted in growth and sustainability. From the conception of our products to farming practices of our materials to the way we ship our packages to you.
Sustainability springs from balance, and our own rural lifestyle has led us to a deep appreciation for the organic harmony of our environment. In addition to helping our customers on their own journey to sustainability, TBFC wanted to work with an organization dedicated to maintaining this natural balance through the promotion of new growth.
As the momentum of our brand began to take shape, and our knowledge base grew we knew there was more that we could be doing. We believed that we alone could not make the kinds of impacts that would be noticed for generations to come, but that together we could do great things.
Reaching past our own abilities and finding partners who share a similar ethos and passion for a sustainable process means that we can do Better together. What is so exciting about our new partnership is that you get to be a part of it too.
We are incredibly excited to be officially in partnership with One Tree Planted. Our One Small Change, One Tree Planted initiative makes it easy and powerful for us to make a difference together.
One small change can feel insignificant but many small changes moving in the same direction can shape the world.
One Tree Planted shares our mission of attainable growth through realistic actions, and just as The Better Farm Co. believes in making small, meaningful changes One Tree Planted understands that every tiny sapling has a role to play in encouraging sustainability on a global scale.
Through this initiative, TBFC will donate a portion of the proceeds from every sale to One Tree Planted, which means that your purchase will directly help us create a greener, healthier world.
Why One Tree Planted?
Because they are committed to following through. They are invested on every level to make sure that their commitment to planting is sustainable and ongoing. From understanding the climate in the region they are working in and choosing native species that are likely to thrive there, to choosing the right location to plant at the right time of year, to the follow up on their saplings this is a program that isn't just seeking to make a sustainable change right now. Through the dedication and research of their program One Tree planted assures that the tree survival is 80% or higher.
One Tree Planted ensures that the trees they plant are not only beautiful but are carefully selected to support and complement the existing ecosystem. One Tree Planted works tirelessly to reforest sensitive areas in North and Latin America, Africa, Asia, and Australia, and, by carefully selecting tree species that will thrive in each region, this inspiring organization is literally changing the face of the planet one tree at a time. When we looked at everything they’ve given us, our choice became clear:
In searching for the best way to make an impact, we decided to go back to our roots.
Planting a tree is the purest form of giving back. To plant a tree is to make a statement: I am dedicated to making our world a greener, healthier, and safer place to live; both for myself and for future generations. Their impact stretches far wider than we think.
Air: Take a deep breath. Exhale. By absorbing and filtering harmful pollutants from the atmosphere and replacing them with clean oxygen, trees literally make it possible to enjoy the fresh air.
Water: Trees keep the Earth in place. Tree roots help to reduce erosion by absorbing and dispersing ground water, protecting us from potential landslides and flooding. The water that is absorbed is then filtered and returned to the environment, completing the water cycle.
Biodiversity: Everything is connected. Take in the flora and fauna that thrives in wooded areas. For birds, animals, and insects, trees provide a rich source of food and shelter. For fungi, moss, and plants, trees offer protection and nourishment, as well as a reliable source of moisture.
Social Impact: Stretching back to the origin of our species, trees have been there, providing us with food security, abundant natural resources, and stable employment. Through conservation efforts and responsible management, we can continue to give back what we’ve consumed.
Health: If you’ve ever taken a walk in the woods, you’ll know the effect trees can have on your spirit, but trees can also make a huge difference to your mental and physical health. A brisk stroll through an oxygen-rich setting can help lower your blood pressure, reduce stress, and improve your overall health. Trees are also natural sound dampeners so, even if you’re near a road or densely populated area, trees will help you shut out the noise of everyday life so you can concentrate on your own wellness.
Climate: This goes without saying - trees breathe in Carbon Dioxide and other pollutants, and reward us with freshly oxygenated clean air, which in turn helps to balance and regulate our climate.
We care deeply about the planet and creating a business that gives back to nature. That’s why we’re thrilled to share our partnership with One Tree Planted/@onetreeplanted to plant a tree for every purchase made.
Trees clean our air and water, create habitats for biodiversity, contribute to our health and wellbeing, and create jobs for social impact. We’re honored to have reforestation through One Tree Planted as an integral part of our business model.
