Educating about the Trees with Friends doing Green Business Entrepreneurship
By Jennifer Smith - Project leader
Earth X in Dallas
We believe in the power of collaboration! Whether planting trees, maintaining them or raising money and awareness, it's part of our Mission to include everyone in ways that speak to them so that they too can feel the reward of giving back to our Planet and helping to empower people in empoverished equatorial countries to regenerate their land and their livelihoods. We do not spend lots of money on marketing or piblic relations campaigns. Rather, our organization depends on Tree Friends to help us raise awareness about the effectiveness of planting trees on the Equaator. We hold space for individuals and businesses alike to use to their own efforts and products to voluntarily share our work and encourage their networks to carbon offset.
Recently, we were invited to attend the Earth X event in Dallas Texas! We are collaborating with an electric compost product that is giving 1% of its profits back to the Earth by sponsoring rainforest trees with us. While we only received 1 tree sponsorship at the event itself, we did make some amazing contacts for potential larger business collaborations joining in the concept of giving back for the environment and social resiliency building in the developing world.
We are thrilled to be working with friends from all over the world and especially this collaboration speaks to us because the product being sold is keeping organic waste out of the locals landfills. After all, we have to act globally as well as locally if we are going to solve the climate crises for future generations.
It was invigorating to speak with so many people who were not aware of all the special ways rainforest trees help us to live! After all, trees are the answer! The trees we plant and grow into new forests on the Equator with fair pay are extra special!
