Our Trunks Plant Trees
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. The trees will be planted by local partner organizations
and community volunteers in areas of deforestation.
Why We Love Trees
For the majority of people, camp is about getting out and interacting with nature. That’s why 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?!
Plant life in general gives us oxygen and clean air, but trees go above and beyond. Ever notice how you seem to feel different when you’re in the woods? You typically walk out feeling refreshed and better than you did when you walked in. Trees provide countless benefits for us like improving our mood, reducing pain, and boosting our energy.
Why We Love One Tree Planted
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. They only plant local tree species, grown in nearby nurseries, and planted when conditions are optimal for tree survival.
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!
Trees if You Please
Reforestation helps rebuild forests after floods and fires, provide jobs for social impact, and restore ecosystems. As mentioned in the beginning, in addition to creating habitats for biodiversity, trees clean the air and contribute to our health and wellbeing. How are they doing that? Is it just the fresh air?
Not quite. 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!
Can Planting Trees Really Make a Difference, Though?
Putting all those trees together creates forests to benefit people, nature, and wildlife for years to come. It’s easy to get caught up in the harm done to the environment. You may feel that there’s nothing you can do on your own to help; maybe you’re not even sure where to jump in. But that’s why it’s important to take action! Pick something—whatever it may be—and do it! Because, yes, even just one tree makes a difference!
