There’s More to Life than Making a Profit: Our Partnership with One Tree Planted!


We like to stand tall with the trees and have made it a goal of ours to give back to the earth. Because we believe that life is more than just making a profit, we decided to partner up with One Tree Planted, a non-profit based out of Vermont. They make it easy for anyone to help the environment simply by planting trees! Trees absorb harmful carbon from the atmosphere, are key ingredients in 25% of all medicines, reduce the risk of natural disasters like floods and landslides, and provide jobs for millions. This organization is something that we’ve been passionate about since the start, and every time you purchase an UnCanny Wellness product, you make a positive impact on the planet! 

About One Tree Planted

One Tree Planted started in 2014, and since then, has more than doubled the number of trees planted each year. Just last year, in 2018, they planted 1,300,000 trees! One Tree Planted works with reforestation partners in North America, South America, Asia, and Africa. The donations that are collected from wonderful people like you go towards areas that have suffered from fires and floods, help create jobs, and increase the biodiversity of habitats worldwide. 


How It Works

When you donate on the One Tree Planted website (or buy any of our products), the organization pools the donations which are then sent to their reforestation partners who grow the saplings. The partners then typically plant the trees during the rainy season, and are properly maintained and monitored to ensure a tree survival rate of 80-90%! They don’t stop there, One Tree Planted also sends out a report that highlights the impact of the trees you planted, and include photos of the newly planted trees.


Why You Should Do It!

Trees are crucial for life on Earth. They clean our air, filter our water, and provide habitat. Tree planting also provides billions of jobs around the world. Without trees, life as we know it wouldn’t exist! It’s incredibly simple to donate and only costs $1! Whether you make a direct donation or purchase any UnCanny Wellness product, you are making an impact.
