At Plantsome, we are super passionate about eliminating waste, reducing our emissions, and using sustainable materials. We are always looking to support green initiatives where we can and this week (Oct. 13 - 20) we are shining a spotlight on a cause that really matters - the deforestation of the Amazon Rainforest.
Real talk: the Amazon isn’t exactly in its prime right now and it really needs our help!
In an effort to join the fight against climate change, Plantsome is partnering with One Tree Planted to help combat deforestation across the Amazon Rainforest. One Tree Planted’s mission is super simple: One Dollar. One Tree Planted.
For every $10 you spend at Plantsome.ca from October 13th until October 20th, Plantsome will donate one dollar so we can plant one tree across the Amazon Rainforest. And because nobody wants to start with an empty piggy bank, we’ve decided to plant 500 trees right away!
Learn more about One Tree Planted and The Amazon Project here.
How do I participate?
Simple! Go and find yourself some new green amigos, and we will take care of the rest. Every order placed from Oct 13 till Oct 20th counts!
Let’s see how many we can plant together, shall we!

About the Amazon Rainforest Project
Home to iconic species like the Jaguar, Macaw, Amazon River Dolphin, Black Spider Monkey, and Poison Dart Frog, the Amazon River Basin is a vast region with 1.9 billion acres of rainforest and over 1,100 tributaries — 17 of which are longer than 1,000 miles. With the world’s largest rainforest ecosystem, it spans 9 countries and is home to almost 30% of plant and animal species on Earth. And by holding an estimated 90-140 billion metric tons of carbon, its forests play a critical role in the fight against climate change. Unfortunately, due to logging, unsustainable agriculture, and forest fires, it’s also a high-risk zone for deforestation and degradation. Planting trees in the Amazon Rainforest will help conserve habitat for its iconic wildlife species, provide sustainable livelihoods to local people, and stabilize the climate.
