10 Trees Initiative
At Green Slate, we love trees. Especially when the sun shines through them just right.
It's downright beautiful.
So we want to help make the earth a greener place and make sure there are plenty of trees to go around.
From now on, we are going to help make this possible by planting 10 trees for every project we do.
But aside from just being beautiful, trees have a lot going for them. They help clean the air we breathe, filter the water we drink, and provide habitat for over 80% of the world's biodiversity.
They also provide jobs to over 1.6 billion people, absorb harmful carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, and are key to over 1/4 of all medicines.
Reasons you should love trees as much as we do:
they suck up harmful pollutants from the atmosphere
they capture rainwater, reducing the risk of natural disasters like flooding
a single tree can be a home to hundreds of species of insects, fungi, moss, mammals, and other plants
in addition to providing jobs for arborists, loggers, and researchers; the sustainable forestry industry provides us with the lumber we need for building homes and wood for heating and cooking
