Today we are happy to announce we have officially partnered with Eden Reforestation Projects to plant a tree for every order placed on our webstore going forward. Through Eden Reforestation Projects, your O’right order helps combat poverty, climate change and loss of biodiversity.
By purchasing from Oright.ca, you are helping to replenish native trees and help alleviate extreme poverty through our ‘employ to plant’ environmental partnership with Eden Reforestation Projects. Our goal is to plant hundreds of thousands of native trees in Kenya, Madagascar, and Mozambique. These specific regions have been ravaged by illegal logging and clear cutting that have destroyed the natural ecosystem.
The deforestation resulting from illegal logging and clear cutting reduces the environment for animals and the reduction of rain-forests has been shown to have a direct connection to global warming. In addition to the impact trees and rain-forests have on the environment, they also have a direct impact on the people that rely on them.
The wages that are earned empower men and women who have been exposed to human trafficking, extreme poverty, or lived as refugees. They are able to support their families and work on small plot farms. Their job is very specific – reforest their nation. For every order from our website a donation is made, a donation that results in the planting of another tree.
