We are just four regular people. Average Jill's and Joe's. We created Zero Waste Cartel to help reduce the amount of plastic waste entering our environment.
But it soon became obvious that we needed to do more.
We asked ourselves... how we could create meaningful and measurable change?
With over 80% of the world's forests already destroyed, it was a no-brainer to become an official partner with One Tree Planted.
If you're not sure why trees are important... check this out:
- 28,000 species are expected to become extinct in the next 25 years due to deforestation.
- 15% of all greenhouse gas emissions are the result of deforestation.
- Every 2 seconds man destroys an area of forest the size of a football field.
- 80% of the world’s terrestrial plants and animals live in forests and are losing their habitats to deforestation
- 300 BILLION tons of carbon are stored in the Earth's forests, which helps regulate its climate by regulating atmospheric gases, stabilizing rainfall, and protecting against desertification.
With every order, we donate a tree to One Tree Planted. Our mission is to plant 20,000 in 2019 and 40,000 the year after. That's 60,000 more trees in the USA and around the world. We think that's a pretty great feat and we need your support.
In a world where you can buy plastic products, wrapped in plastic packaging and have a double negative affect on the environment... we are proud to give you the option of a triple positive - eco-friendly products, compostable packaging, a new tree!
Thanks for you support.
