WE PLANT TREES!
DVS are delighted to announce our New Partnership with One Tree Planted!
One Tree Planted is a non-profit founded in Shelburne, Vermont. They work with amazing reforestation organisations around the world that need financial support to help them get more trees in the ground. They started in 2014 with a mission to make it simple for people to help the environment.
ONE DOLLAR, ONE TREE
HOW IT WORKS?
They pool the donations for each project and send the funds to their reforestation partners. They vet their partners to ensure that they maintain a tree survival rate of 80-90%.
Depending on the project, their partners choose the best tree species to plant and work with local communities to get them in the ground. Planting typically happens in the rainy season when the soil is wet and provides optimal conditions for tree survival.
THE DVS PLEDGE
In an effort to Go Green, DVS have pledged to Plant One Tree for every online order placed through our website. To get the partnership underway, we have back dated our orders to the start of August and submitted our first donation of 240 trees.
WHY ARE TREES SO IMPORTANT TO THE ENVIRONMENT?
Trees help clean the air we breathe, filter the water we drink, and provide habitat to over 80% of the world’s biodiversity. Forests provide jobs to over 1.6 billion people, absorb harmful carbon from the atmosphere, and are key ingredients in one quarter of all medicines. Ever taken an Aspirin? It comes from the bark of a tree!
Here are the six pillars that explain why trees are so vital…
