SLIPPA has partnered up with One Tree Planted for our Land Collection. Every towel purchased will plant a tree. After a ton of research, we found there are many non profit organizations that will take donations to plant trees. However, not all of them follow the same procedure.
One Tree Planted doesn't just plant trees, but they nurture each seedling for 8 months to ensure its survival. This technique ensures a much higher survival rate, thus making it a much more effective campaign. We decided to join this initiative for a few reasons. We are well aware about the destruction of the natural environment. More than 80% of the world's forests have already been destroyed. Every second, one football field of forests are being cut down. But we didn't decide to plant trees solely due to deforestation.
Trees clean the air we breathe. They sequester massive amounts of Carbon Dioxide from the atmosphere and are essential for life. In fact, trees greatly increase biodiversity. It also cleans the drinking water we use by acting as a natural filter. One of our biggest concerns for the environment is global warming, this foreseeable event will literally end life on Earth as we know it. The only way to reverse the process is to decrease levels of Carbon Dioxide in the atmosphere. In order to do so, we need to make some serious lifestyle changes. One of which is protecting and increasing forest cover to help combat the levels of Carbon.
