SHOPPACART partners with reforestation non-profit One Tree Planted
“One for One” Initiative Dedicated to Planting Trees Around The World
SHOPPACART is pleased to announce that we have partnered with One Tree Planted, a nonprofit on a mission to make it simple for anyone to help the environment by planting trees. For every Shoppacart purchased, Shoppacart will plant one tree.
Sustainability and the environment is at the core of our business model and this partnership is a great way to give back and help the environment.
The objectives of this new partnership include:
- Supporting global reforestation efforts
- Empowering consumers with sustainable actions
- Raising awareness about the importance of ecosystem restoration
Planting trees is one of the best ways to combat the damaging effects of climate change. Trees help clean the air we breathe, filter the water we drink, and provide habitat to over 80 percent of the world’s terrestrial biodiversity. Trees also provide tremendous social impacts by providing jobs to over 1.6 billion people, empowering women in underdeveloped nations, and supporting communities devastated by environmental damage.
Our partnership is designed to be simple for our customers to get involved in global reforestation. For every Shoppacart sold, we will donate to One Tree Planted to plant one tree. The trees are planted by local partner organizations and community volunteers in areas where there has been deforestation.
Our focus is on The Pacific, as Australia is our home. With over 123 million hectares of unique and varied native forests, Australia has the seventh largest forest area in the world, making up 3% of the Earth’s forests. Australia’s forests range from ancient Gondwana rainforest and tropical mangroves to extensive bush lands made up of native acacia, melaleuca and eucalyptus trees.
Your donation will help to plant millions of trees across Australia to recover forests affected by the 2019-20 Black Summer Bushfires and restore native habitat vital for wildlife.
With your help One Tree Planted, through Shoppacart, will:
- Create habitat corridors for Koalas
- Promote Australia’s native biodiversity
- Restore areas affected by bushfires
