Why Plant Trees? A Non-Exhaustive List

1) Off-Set Carbon Emissions:

This one is pretty obvious but it's just as important as ever. With eCommerce growing exponentially so is its carbon footprint. From the manufacturing, packaging, and shipping footprint (not to mention the footprint associated with returning items). The carbon footprint of eCommerce has never been higher. Trees act as an efficient mechanism to offset carbon emissions. By absorbing carbon dioxide via photosynthesis trees also create the oxygen we need to breathe.

One tree can offset a literal ton of CO2 over its lifetime, and when you plant enough it will continue to grow and reproduce, offsetting more and more carbon with each passing year.
