Thanks to everyone for helping partner with High Fashion Home and the Arbor Day Foundation. As of March 31st, 2009, we have now planted 3,554 trees. For every piece of furniture purchased, one tree is planted. 3,554 trees may seem a lot or it may seem a little. Either way, we appreciate everyone with helping us make a difference. Addressing our global climate change is bigger than any one person or organization. It's going to take all of us to pitch in and contribute.
The benefits of one tree can make a positive impact for years to come:
- One tree can absorb more than a ton of carbon dioxide
- Over the course of 50 years, a single tree can control $31,500 of soil erosion.
- Trees help maintain clean water supplies.
- One tree produces nearly 260 pounds of oxygen a year.
