Planting and nurturing a tree helps remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, converting it into living biomass. Carbon dioxide is the most important anthropogenic greenhouse gas, simply because we produce so much of it. It is the main driver of climate change and all of the extreme weather, reduced food crop production, ecological damage and potential social instability that goes with it. A simple tree has the capacity to stand against all this.

We were looking for a unique and novel product that linked with our initiatives to reduce energy and water usage. We chose ForestNation because it's a tangible and interactive product and we really love the concept "you plant one we plant one". We used the tree kits as a corporate gift in our welcome packs at our Round Table Event. ForestNation helped us to raise awareness with employees and associates and reinforce our message that we are serious and committed to corporate social responsibility.

During the years trees gave us shelter in many ways, food and so many other things. Now its the time the Human race gives something back to trees - Security for each tree. (Tree Planting Day 1. See their tree)

Growing our own trees at work reminds us everyday to think about our impact on the environment and how we can take little steps to improve it. We believe the ForestNation program will help to reinforce general awareness of social responsibility and the positive effect it has on each individual actively adopting these principles.

Running the tree kit program at our school provided our students with the opportunity to engage directly in an international environmental effort, growing their own tree at home while at the same time knowing that they were having an impact on improving the world. This product served the educational and experiential needs of our school perfectly.
Eric Petersiel ~ Principal at the Leo Baeck School
As part of our Earth Day and Arbor Day lesson plans, this year we aim to plant more trees outside our school to care for our planet and communicate our green values. Plus, with ForestNation we have the added value that for each tree kit purchase, they will plant a tree in the country we selected which is Haiti
