Project Marley was started in effort to impact the reforestation process of this planet. To this date, we’ve planted 25,000 trees with help from OneTreePlanted.org. Every purchase of a House of Marley product helps plant one tree. A percentage of our sales go towards supporting reforestry.
Now, why is this important? Why should we value this initiative? Simply because the planet is our home. Here are 6 reasons why we should support reforestry.
1. Clean air – Trees clean the air we breathe.
2. Water filtration – Trees help filter the water we drink.
3. Bio-diversity – Trees provide habitat to over 80% of the Earth’s living species.
4. Climate – Trees help regulate our climate and sequester 20% of the carbon from our atmosphere.
5. Social impact – Trees help provide jobs to over 1.6 billion people on this planet.
6. Health & Wellness – Trees are essential contributors to our mental and physical well being. One out of four medicines are derived from trees and other plant life.
