TREE PLANTING INITIATIVE
At NIA THOMAS we are proud to be partners with Seed The Change and doing our part to make the world a better place.
Every order you place with us will plant one tree, allowing you to personally impact the live of those less fortunate.
Deforestation is the leading cause of climate change.
If we want to protect the future of our planet, and our own health, tree planting has to be a part of the plan.
We're committed to rebuilding and restoring the environment by planting one tree with every online purchase order.
The world loses millions of acres of trees due to deforestation every year. In just a year, one tree has the ability to produce 120 kilograms of oxygen and absorb as much carbon as a car produces driving 41,000 kms.
Some important facts to know:
Planting just one tree and growing it for 30 years will offset the emissions from a drive of about 500 kms, or a flight of about 2,000 kms.
1 tree makes on average 16.67 reams of copy paper or 8,333 sheets.
One and a half acres of forest is cut down every second.
A single mature tree releases enough oxygen back into the atmosphere for two people to live off.
A single tree provides an estimated $7 savings in annual environmental benefits, including energy conservation and reduced pollution.
Just one tree can store 1,250 kilograms of carbon. That's the equivalent of offsetting a return flight from Los Angeles to London.
Just 16 trees can offset the annual carbon emissions of an average Australian household over its 30 year life.
70% of the worlds plants and animals live in forests and are losing their habitats to deforestation.
