The MY TREES FOUNDATION Has Two New Green Partners
The MY TREES FOUNDATION and its partner Sázíme Stromy, have formed a new coalition with One Tree Planted and the Caterpillar Foundation! What does this mean for us?
Meet One Tree Planted
One dollar, one tree. This is the motto of One Tree Planted, a non-profit environmental organization that focuses on global afforestation. The goal of One Tree Planted is to provide a platform for ecologically-minded people to help nature. Donors send a monetary gift, and the organization plants trees on their behalf. One Tree Planted strives to create a healthier climate, protect biodiversity, and restore forests around the world by planting trees. Does that sound familiar to you too? For MY TREES, this is an ideal connection.
One Tree Planted has exponentially increased the number of trees it plants every year. It started in 2015 with 50,000 saplings, and in 2020, it made the earth greener with an incredible 10,000,000 new trees. The organization is working with amazing partners in the field of reforestation in 43 countries, and we cannot be more thrilled that the MY TREES Foundation is now among them.
The #ItStartsWithATree campaign
The MY TREES FOUNDATION and One Tree Planted have also joined forces with Caterpillar Engineering and its Caterpillar Foundation, which has a long-term commitment to sustainability and environmental improvement. Together, the partners have launched the #ItStartsWithATree campaign. The campaign aims to plant over 280,000 trees in 95 places this year. Doing so will support Chilean beekeepers after forest fires, the economic independence of women in rural Nigeria, a generation of older people in India, and some unexpected places in the Czech Republic.
100 trees for the Czechia
The huge international company Caterpillar has a domestic office in the vicinity of Žatec, so it wanted to make sure the #ItStartsWithATree campaign planted some trees in our country. The coalition of MY TREES + Sázíme Stromy + One Tree Planted + Caterpillar Foundation will be tree planting in Žatec and Nový Strašecí.
