GlobalGiving Trees this Holiday Season

Give Rainforest Trees for Holiday Gifts
Give Rainforest Trees for Holiday Gifts

At this special time of year,  sometimes it is hard to think of the perfect gift for some of the people on your list who really seem to have all they need. What is more, a lot of people are consciously trying to decrease their consumption which is taking such a toll on our planet's resources. Yet, so many of us still want to enjoy that warm glow that comes from giving and receiving. So do it green this Holiday Season when our planet is so in need of more trees planted near the Equator to help fight climate change and loss and biodiversity of species.  Give a real rainforest tree planted and cared for over 25 years by local Costa Rican farmers struggling to conserve vulnerable rainforest and make a living from deforested lands. There are so many reasons to celebrate this year. Show your love for humanity, the planet, the trees! Paid local community members including women  will take care of every tree for over 25 years.

Don't forget to offset the carbon dioxide from your holiday travel too. It is so easy simply by planting trees guaranteed to grow for at least 25 years within 10 degrees of the Equator. Each tropical tree sequesters approximately 1 ton of carbon dioxide. We will do the long term tree care work for you on farms owned by Costa Ricans. See the chart below for examples of flights to and from Costa Rica where we work. Or, you can calculate your own carbon footprint from holiday travel with online carbon calculators easily used on the internet. 

Happy Holidays! Thank you for all your support of our winning effort to offset climate change with real community action!
