Trees Planted To Date

While doing this daily project, I discovered The Nature Conservancy's "Plant A Billion" campaign. Their goal is to plant 1 Billion trees in the Atlantic Forest of Brazil, one of the most devastated rainforests on the planet. Their motto is: "One Dollar. One Tree. One Planet."

I immediately planted ten trees and wished I had much more money to contribute to such a worthy cause.

To facilitate this goal, I created Trees Please art glass pendants, bottle cap necklaces and Wire Baby Trees. Both styles of necklaces feature the trees created during this 365 project. A portion of the proceeds from the sales of these items is donated to plant trees through The Nature Conservancy. (2 trees for every art glass pendant necklace sold, 1 tree for each bottle cap necklace and 5 trees for each Wire Baby Tree)

On September 14, 2013, Trees Please prints debuted at the 12th Annual Bellevue Art in the Park. Ten percent of sales is being donated to plant more trees!

On February 16, 2014 Trees Please prints were featured at Sacred Breath. It was an amazing day.

As September 20, 2014 we have planted 382 trees.

If you weren't able to attend the Sacred Breath show, here's a little taste of the Love that was in the house...

Feel like planting some trees?
