Plant a Tree
THE MOVEMENT STARTS WITH YOU!
A Sustainable future starts with individuals just like you taking small steps.
Planting and growing trees is the best way to remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and reverse global warming. Upper Earth is proud to partner with our tree planting organization, for a joint commitment to restore and protect forests and minimize climate change.
With every purchase, we will plant a tree. That means every earth friendly purchase adds another tree to our landscape and another step towards counteracting climate change.
