The average American uses 65 cubic feet of wood every year - equivalent to six 12-14" diameter trees - in paper and wood products. Worldwide, tree harvesting far outstrips replanting, threatening the clean water, air supplies, and livelihoods of many people. What can you do to help? You can replant the trees you use, quickly and easily, by joining the 100% Replanted program.
why are trees important?
Trees are vital to all life on earth. Without them, we would not have oxygen, carbon storage, stable soils, or habitat for many animals on the planet. The following facts will help you realize just how important - and amazing - trees are and why we must conserve them if we can!
-Trees absorb carbon dioxide as they grow and the carbon that they store in their wood helps slow the rate of global warming. (The Royal Parks Foundation)
-Research shows that within minutes of being surrounded by trees and green space, your blood pressure will drop, your heart rate will slow and your stress levels will come down. (The Royal Parks Foundation)
-Trees support the lives of many large organisms. Trees are used for food, shelter, and sites for reproduction. Many animals also use trees for resting, nesting and for places from which to hunt or capture prey. (National Wildlife Federation)
Follow along to become 100% replanted
It's as easy as 1 - 2 - Tree!
Multiply the amount of people in your household by:
X 1000 lbs (IF YOU DO recycle and use recycled or post consumer recycled paper)
X 1200 lbs (IF YOU DO NOT recycle or use recycled or post consumer recycled paper)
Divide this number by 200 and this gets the trees that you used!
Take your trees that you used in STEP 2 - and multiply x 5
Take this number and buy that many trees at checkout!
(We estimate that to replace one larger tree, five seedlings should be planted to assume at least one will reach maturity)
