Plant One Million Trees

by Inga Yandell

From the ground up, our earth renews itself. It is this sentiment that inspires wild advocates and conservationists around the world and drives ‘tree planting’ campaigns that remind us “Growing is Forever”.

Certainly, our lifestyles have impact – some of which is irreversible, but even more that has yet to define our planets future. And at the root of earths renewal are trees, living filters offering shelter for nature and fresh air to sustain life ‘everywhere’.

“More Trees Please” is the message and objective behind the ‘Plant One Million Trees’ campaign for Earth day 2012. In a partnership between the Earth Day Network – an international environmental organisation that works with over 22,000 partners in 192 countries to coordinate Earth Day worldwide, and Rain Tees – an organic line of apparel for women and children that features artwork drawn by youth living in critically endangered areas around the world, friends of eco-fashion are helping to “Plant Trees with Tees”.

Earlier this year Rain Tees planted 10,000 trees in a forest on the verge of extinction in Brazil through a virtual campaign and it was a massive success, reforesting hundreds of acres and generating over 25,000 opt-in email addresses in a matter of days with celebrities like Rosario Dawson, Jenna Dewan Tatum, and husband Channing Tatum.

Last year, Earth Day Network planted over 1 million trees in 16 countries as part of the Avatar Home Tree Initiative, a project supported by Twentieth Century Fox to advance the environmental message of the Avatar movie and DVD.

Now they want to make the impact even more profound. Plant One Million Trees 2012 will be similar with celebrity supporters and major global brands already on board and it will create a multi media and social movement.

Participants only have to enter their email address to have a tree planted for free in their name.
