One of EarthyAccents' main goals is to give something back to planet earth. We commit to planting one tree for every product sold. That's right. We believe that rebuilding natural landscapes destroyed by deforestation is crucial to fight climate change and planting trees is one of the easiest and most sustainable ways to have a positive effect the environment.
Here's how we can make a difference by planting trees:
- Trees absorb carbon dioxide and potentially harmful gasses, such as sulfur dioxide and carbon monoxide and release oxygen.
- They moderate the effects of sun and wind, and they clean the air by trapping dust, pollen and other pollutants.
- They create an ecosystem to provide habitat and food for wildlife such as birds, squirrels and bugs.
- One large tree can supply a day's supply of oxygen for four people.
- Trees help reduce surface water runoff from storms, thus decreasing soil erosion and the accumulation of sediments in streams. They increase ground water recharge and reduce the number of potentially harmful chemicals transported to our streams.
- An acre of trees absorb enough carbon dioxide in a year to equal the amount produced when you drive a car 26,000 miles.
- Trees cool the air, land and water with shade and moisture thus reduce the heat-island effect of our urban communities.
We believe that together we can make a difference by fighting deforestation, defending animals from extinction and protecting the environment.
We hope you'll join us.
