After the recent, devastating bushfires here in Australia, like many others, we were left feeling a little helpless. We ran several campaigns to help us raise money for WIRES Wildlife Foundation and Port Macquarie Koala Hospital but we still wanted to do more so we began looking into some long-term projects we could get involved with. After much discussion we finally decided that for the year of 2020 we would plant one tree for every online order placed with the help of One Tree Planted.
One Tree Planted are a not-for-profit organisation based in USA that partner with carefully selected reforestation organisations worldwide. They planted more than 2.5 million trees between 2014-2018. Long story short, we're kicking this initiative off on the 1st of February. From Feb-Apr we will be planting trees right here in Australia. But it doesn't end there and we want your help! Every 3 months we'll be tallying up our total orders and we'll continue planting trees all over the world. We'll host little poll parties on our Instagram stories for you to vote as to where you'd like to see the trees being planted for that quarter. You can read more about One Tree Planted here. Otherwise, just know that if you are a JRC addict, you can now shop knowing that you are helping our world become a better place.
