When founding the company, Samantha Ashton had a vision to not only provide gifts inspired by Mother Nature but to help preserve our planet. With this in mind she made a promise that every candle purchased will give back to nature.
After much research in finding a suitable foundation to contribute to Samantha settled on One Tree Planted, an environmental charity whose mission is humble:
“To make it simple for anyone to help the environment by planting trees!”
- Trees clean the air.
- Trees sequester around 20% of the carbon in the atmosphere (carbon contributes to climate change).
- Trees help clean the water. Trees act as like a filter when there's heavy rain, absorbing the water and releasing it gradually.
- Trees help with soil erosion.
- Trees have a social (1.6 billion people on this planet are somehow connected to forests for their livelihood).
- Trees are home to 80% of the world’s biodiversity (on land).
BURN A CANDLE. PLANT A TREE.
For every candle made and sold by our company, a donation will be made to One Tree Planted.
