It’s time to tell you about our news. We are pleased to announce that we have partnered with Tree Nation, so that with every product purchased on Wonderful.cz, a tree is planted. More shopping means more trees in the Wonderful Forest!
To us, it’s important to take action to help our planet. With the purchase of each Wonderful product, we will make a contribution to Tree Nation. Tree Nation allows people around the world to plant real trees from the comfort of their own homes. When you purchase from Wonderful, Tree Nation then physically plants a tree in the region we are supporting – currently Madagascar and Kenya. Not only will the contribution support reforestation, but it will also help people in these developing countries.
You may be wondering, why not support reforestation in Europe? Tree Nation also plants trees in Europe, but because the main mission is to help reverse the effects of climate change, the organization is primarily concerned with the reforestation in tropical forests. The reason is simple: trees in the tropics grow much faster, so they capture and sequester carbon faster. This reduces carbon in the atmosphere, thereby mitigating the effects of climate change. Also, massive deforestation is taking place in the tropics, where 85% of terrestrial biodiversity is threatened.
You may also be wondering, why have we chosen to plant trees as a way to give back? Trees are essential to both environmental health, and to human health – both of which are at the core of Wonderful’s mission. Trees are the lungs of our planet, but they do so much more, including:
- CLEAN WATER, as effective filtration is ensured by tree roots.
- ACT AS A WATER SOURCE, as large cities often rely on wooded areas.
- PRODUCE OXYGEN. A single acre with planted trees will provide oxygen for 12 people, even for a full year!
- ABSORB HARMFUL POLLUTANTS from the air.
- COOL THE AIR IN YOUR SURROUNDINGS.
- HEAL. Different types of trees are used in medicine and the pharmaceutical industry.
- HELP IN DEVELOPING AREAS. The forest provides food, drink and part of the income to families in some tropical and subtropical areas.
- HOME TO FAUNA, thanks to which terrestrial biodiversity is maintained in the world.
- SUPPORT INSECTS, which is an important element of the ecosystem.
- HELP PREVENT EXTINCTION of some species, which may be caused by the loss of forests.
- CAPTURE CARBON and act as carbon sinks.
- STORE CARBON and slow down the effects of climate change.
- PROTECT THE SOIL beneath our feet and prevent erosion.
- RECYCLE NUTRIENTS between trees and soil.
As you can see, trees are not only majestic, but they are essential to our health, and the health of the planet. Now, thanks to our partnership with Tree Nation, you can plant trees straight into emerging forests. With each product purchased, you create something spectacular: a new tree, a new life, and a new opportunity to contribute to the health of our planet.
