Spring is one of the most well loved times of the year. The warm weather makes its debut, the air is more crisp and fresh, and all of the landscape is in full bloom. This season most literally brings nature back to life and shows the true beauty of the world we live in, which makes you wonder how anyone, no matter what day of the year, could ever take it for granted let alone destroy it.
We live in a world that’s constantly evolving and striving to advance further than where we were yesterday, however that ambition comes at the cost of our planet. Research has shown that the number of trees worldwide has fallen 46% over the past 12,000 years and more than 15 billion trees are felled each year, causing significant implications for the planet in terms of climate change, biodiversity, and human well-being (Source: Mongabay Series: Global Forests). We’ve made it an initiative at Freedom Solutions For Life to not only make a positive impact on the health & wellness of our society but to also give back to the environment, which is why we are proud to be a part of the Project GreenHands movement.
Project GreenHands was launched on World Environment Day, June 5th 2004 as a grass roots ecological initiative. With more than 1.5 million volunteers, this project has planted more than 25 million trees to date and aims to plant 114 million trees in total. Their contribution has influenced the establishment of other environmental projects such as Green School, Trees for Life and Volunteer, Educational, and Corporate Tree Nurseries that help bring their dream to fruition. Project GreenHands invites everyone from across the globe to join hands, volunteer to restore our planet and contribute for a greener tomorrow. We sponsor Project GreenHands through our Be Free line – for each product we sell, one new tree is planted on this earth.
