Our Earth Day Giveaway is #RootedInChange! (CLOSED)
UPDATE: Congratulations to Nikki H @wiscogirl28, you are the winner of this awesome giveaway!
Hello fellow greenies! Spring is here and you all know what that means. Earth day is on the way! On April 22nd, people all over the world will join hands in an effort to make our environment safer, cleaner and of course greener! What started as an attempt to spread awareness of environmental protection in 1970’s America has sprung forth participation from over 193 countries worldwide today! As many as 200 million people participate in earth related movements on Earth Day each year!
Shoplet’s partner Trees for the Future has also made incredible strides in restoring and revitalizing degraded land. Trees for the Future not only plants trees, but they change lives. TFTF has implemented a program called The Forest Garden Program, which is a simple, replicable and scalable approach with proven success. Forest Gardens provide families with sustainable food sources, livestock feed, products to sell, fuel wood and up to a 500% increase in their annual income. By planting specific types of trees and crops in a systematic manner over a four year period, the environment and the community has tremendously benefited. It’s good for the earth and good for the people.
With your help, our work with Trees for the Future has allowed us to sponsor the planting of over 37,000 trees in Tanzania. Helping communities rebuild their environment and improve quality of life in a sustainable and beneficial way is rewarding for all of us.
So, let’s celebrate Earth Day with some fun, games and of course, tree planting! Lets all make the promise to be rooted in change and plant more trees than ever before.
