April is the month where we celebrate the Earth. Miracle Leaf Wellness will be making our first donation between 22nd – 30th of April 2022. For every order we receive, we will donate £1 to One Tree Planted.
One Pound = One Tree!
One Tree Planted is a non-profit organisation focused on global reforestation. Their vision is to make it simple for anyone to help the environment by planting trees. Together we can restore forests, create habitat for biodiversity, and make a positive social impact around the world.
One Tree Planted have planted over 40 million trees in more than 43 countries across the globe since 2014. In 2021, more than doubled their impact from 2020 – with 23.5 million trees!
Over the years, Ireland and the United Kingdom have undergone significant deforestation. We are currently focused on restoring forests across these lands.
Trees help clean the air we breathe, filter the water we drink, and provide habitat to over 80% of the world’s terrestrial biodiversity. Forests provide jobs to over 1.6 billion people, absorb harmful carbon from the atmosphere, and are key ingredients in 25% of all medicines. Have you ever taken an Aspirin? It comes from the bark of a tree!
Did you know that hospital patients with rooms overlooking trees recover faster than those without the same view? It’s impossible to ignore that feeling of elation you get while walking through a calm, quiet forest. Trees help reduce stress and anxiety, and allow us to reconnect with nature. In addition, shade provided by tree coverage helps protect our skin from the ever-increasing harshness of the sun.
Ireland and the United Kingdom used to have glorious forest coverage, but changes in land use have caused extensive deforestation. In addition to being critical to protecting the climate, forests also build community. These reforestation projects will be highly engaging, community-led initiatives to create educational opportunities, volunteer planting events, and public spaces so that everyone, including the most marginalized communities, can enjoy the native flora and fauna of Ireland and the United Kingdom.
These more than one million trees will make a significant climate impact, sequestering carbon and creating climate resilience by reducing flooding and the effects of pollution. This project supports increased access to public woodland, especially for communities in need, with opportunities for community engagement and improved public health. Organizations will be able to integrate the project with school education to get children out in nature.
As to maximize the overall benefit to the area, One Tree Planted will plant native trees such as Pedunculate/Common Oak, Downy Birch, Hazel, Hawthorn, Small-leaved lime, Rowan, Silver Birch, Common Alder, Aspen, Goat Willow, Field Maple, Hornbeam, Beech, and Blackthorn.
We wouldn’t be able to make such a positive environmental impact without you.
So, truly, thank you!
