One Tree Planted
We plant ONE TREE for EVERY ORDER on our website.
At UnCanny Wellness, we firmly believe in the triple bottom line - that people, planet, and profits all hold the same weight and that the three should always be in balance.
That's why we decided to partner with One Tree Planted, a non-profit organization based out of Vermont that works with companies like us to help make this mission possible.
The first tree-planting project that we're supporting is in Colorado, our home base.
Colorado has 24.4 million acres of forests which provide huge social, economic and ecological benefits. Forests support a sustainable wood products industry, diverse wildlife, fresh water, and ample recreation opportunities. But these precious forests face serious threats, including insect infestations, long-term drought, and forest fires. Unhealthy forests set the stage for exceptionally large, devastating wildfires that significantly increase risks of dangerous flooding, extreme erosion, degraded water quality, and reduced water storage capacity.
Why plant trees? Trees are powerhouses that serve several key ecosystem functions. They sequester excess carbon from the atmosphere and release oxygen, improving air quality throughout their entire lifecycle. They also provide important shade to the ground, allowing for other species of plants to grow and keep soil temperatures stable and healthy. Their roots reach deep and aerate the soil, improving ground-water retention and support healthy watersheds. Trees also provided niche habitats for many species of insects, birds, small mammals, and more.
