Thanks to all our customers for joining High Fashion Home and the Arbor Day Foundation to help save our planet. For every piece of furniture sold at High Fashion Home, one tree will be planted through the Arbor Day foundation. As of December 31, 2010, we have helped plant 15,740 trees.
Here are some of the benefits one tree can make 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.
My math says our trees will help produce 4,092,400 pounds of oxygen in the next year. Thanks to all of our great customers for helping the world breath a little bit easier.
