1 product purchased = 1 tree planted
Words with Boards is committed to doing what we can for the environment including reforestation. Since day one the American hardwoods used to make our cutting boards and other wooden products have come from recycled or sustainable sources.
In 2018 we started planted a tree for every wooden product sold through our website. We have partnered with One Tree Planted
a 501C3 nonprofit to make this happen. With your help, we can plant a forest!
Below is a breakdown of 3 states and one mountain range that need our help the most.
- California is suffering from 5 years of drought and devastating loss from wildfires.
- Over 1.3 million acres burned in 2017 and almost 3 million acres in 2020!
- Oregon has an estimated 522,000 acres, the equivalent of over 815 square miles, of forest cover that has disappeared since 2000.
- One Tree Planted's goal this year is to plant 500,000 trees in Idaho. This will create creature habitats and help to stabilize the soil and climate.
- Wildfires, strong storms and hurricanes all contribute to loss of trees that cover over 1,070,000 acres in Florida.
- Planting trees will not only enhance people's lives but it will also protect the endangered birds, mammals, reptiles and plants species.
- 150 tree species are found in this region which encompasses most of the eastern part of the country from New York in the north to Alabama and Georgia to the south.
- 83% of the habitat has been lost and planting trees will help restore this vast forest trail.
