Giving Back With One Tree Planted For Every Purchase

For every purchase made on our website, we donate to plant a tree.

I am so proud to announce that The Spotted Olive has become a reforestation partner with One Tree Planted! As a paper goods studio, I feel it is important to offset the creation of our products in order to reduce our carbon footprint and help the environment. In an effort to be socially and environmentally responsible, two of our paper stocks are FSC certified, we recycle boxes and packing materials, limit our packaging and don’t carry much of an inventory. And now for every order placed on our website, we will donate to plant a tree through One Tree Planted. Doing what’s right and giving back to help the environment makes us very happy!

How it works
When you make a purchase through our website, thespottedolive.com, you will see a little one tree planted icon placed in your shopping cart with a price tag of $0.00. You are not charged for this. At the end of the month,The Spotted Olive automatically donates to One Tree Planted based on the number of orders place through the site during that month. Currently these donations are being used for tree planting efforts in North America and my home state of Colorado is one of the target areas. I live in an area that has been hit with two major wildfires and I know how vital reforestation is so this charity is close to my heart. Below is a video showing One Tree Planted’s reforestation project here in Colorado to one of the many areas devastated by wildfires in recent years.

 

About One Tree Planted
One Tree Planted is a 501c3 non-profit charity focused on global reforestation based in Shelburne, Vermont. One Tree Planted plants trees around the world in the four major regions of North America, South American, Asia and Africa.

“Trees are vital to our planet as they filter the air we breath, clean the water we drink, provide habitat to over 80% of the biodiversity on this planet, provide jobs to over 1.6 billion people worldwide, help provide medicines for health, help regulate climate and provide social impacts with local communities we work with.” ~onetreeplanted.org

Planting trees is one of the best things you can do for the environment and I am thrilled to have the opportunity to do my part through The Spotted Olive and One Tree Planted! When the environment wins, everybody wins!

 

Cheers!
