This Earth Day marks just over 3 years of partnership between Norte and Trees for the Future (TREES) and more than 15,770 trees planted.
Through this partnership, Norte, TREES, and our followers have not only helped heal the environment but have helped provide indigenous seeds and nursery materials, sustainable foundations for crop generation through further farming education and soil enrichment, and helped bring fresh produce into the lives of many who need it the most. In other words, we are doing some really cool stuff.
In honour of the 50th anniversary of Earth Day, the team at Norte have committed to double our partnership pledge with TREES from 22 April 2020 to 22 May 2020, meaning 10 trees will be planted for every Norte product sold.
“This pledge enables us to connect with the Earth and the global community in celebration of Earth Day,” says Norte co-founder, Amy, “what we are doing is playing a small part to create some certainty in times of uncertainty for vulnerable communities.”
Trees for the Future is an international development nonprofit working to train smallholder farmers in regenerative agroforestry and climate-smart agriculture techniques. TREES and Norte are having a direct impact on the planet by contributing to reforestation efforts, eliminating the need for smallholder deforestation, improving carbon capture through trees and soil, and eliminating the need for chemical inputs on farmland.
“The solution to our climate crisis is in the way we grow our food and treat our land,” says TREES Executive Director John Leary. “With help from vital business partners, we’re reaching some of the most vulnerable people on the planet and giving them the tools to achieve nutritional and economic stability, all while repairing their land and the environment.”
Norte is a Plant A Tree Partner of TREES. For every item sold from from 22 April 2020 to 22 May 2020, Norte plants 10 trees.
