Hey, Tree Huggers!
For the majority of people, camp is about getting out and interacting with nature. Can you even imagine summer camp without grass? Without water? Trees? We here at Everything Summer Camp want to help preserve our natural world. We’re sure that you feel the same. And what better way than putting lots of trees in the ground?! Here at Everything Summer Camp, we’re happy to announce that we’ve partnered with One Tree Planted to plant a tree for every trunk we sell!
We’re thrilled to be working with One Tree Planted: a nonprofit dedicated to reforestation across the world. They plant trees to restore nature and biodiversity. The trees will be planted by local partner organizations and community volunteers in areas of deforestation. They only plant local tree species, grown in nearby nurseries, and planted when conditions are optimal for tree survival.
Putting all those trees together creates forests to benefit people, nature, and wildlife for years to come. In addition to creating habitats for biodiversity, trees clean the air and contribute to our health and well-being. How are they doing that? Is it just the fresh air?
The secret ingredient trees are working with that has such a positive effect on us is called a negative ion. Negative ions are found in water that has been negatively charged by the earth. Tree roots reach deep and bring up this water, bringing the negative charge from the earth up along with it. The trees then breathe this healing energy out. With that in mind, it’s true that it actually feels good to hug a tree!
Partnering with local communities and knowledgeable experts, One Tree Planted is a 501(c)(3) organization that raises awareness about the importance of trees, offers businesses like ours a simple sustainability solution, and motivates younger generations to do something positive for the environment!
