Earlier this year, we joined Ecologi to help plant trees to fight climate change. This is in addition to the tree planting efforts of Shopify through WeForest and their Sustainability Fund. Every order we complete results in one tree being planted. We've passed the 100 trees mark. You can check our progress here.
Ecologi is dedicated to reforestation as a natural climate solution. Through the Eden Reforestation Project many of the trees planted are mangrove trees which capture up to four times as much carbon per acre as tropical rainforests. Their root systems are also used by tropical fish for shelter and nurseries.
Fighting climate change requires a multifaceted approach. Planting trees is just one small part of it. Some tree projects are better than others. We have created an infographic to help you determine which ones you might want to contribute to.
