Trees for the Future
We are so very pleased to announce that mōksa is a proud partner with “Trees for the Future!” Two weeks ago, I received a very special email from this wonderful organization. I’m even more thrilled that we will be working on a special project this Fall 2011 for Trees for the Future. In the meantime, moksa organics has pledged to donate money for every product that we sell. That means every time we sell a product, a tree will be planted in India as well as several countries in Africa such as Kenya, Ethiopia, Uganda and Zambia.
A quick recap on why “Trees for the Future” is extra special: To date, they have planted over 50 million trees and are still going strong. Since 1989, Trees for the Future has been helping communities around the world plant trees. Through seed distribution, agroforestry training, and country programs, they’ve empowered rural groups to restore tree cover to their lands. Planting trees protects the environment and helps to preserve traditional livelihoods and cultures for generations. They’re restoring our Earth’s land and rainforests using sustainable farming methods!
Another reason: Dave Deppner is my hero! 50 million trees planted, bitten by a cobra, kicked by a horse, fell of a mountain side, lost his bottom teeth, 11 broken bones. What a heart that exudes passion! I had the privilege of talking with his son, Francis who works along side his dad. Watch the quick video below. It’s worth it. Does it get any better than this? I think not.
