Rêve En Vert & Trees for the Future

We celebrate this partnership on International Day of Forests!

Here at Rêve En Vert we are continually looking for ways to increase our charitable and environmental give-back, so when we came across the organisation Trees for the Future we were thrilled to be able to create a partnership that would contribute to well-being in multiple ways.

 

With the slogan “Planting Trees, Changing Lives,” Trees for the Future is a charitable organisation that plants trees in developing countries to help with infrastructure and livelihoods, as well as rehabilitating lands that have been ravaged by deforestation.

 

In the early 1970s, co-founders Dave and Grace Deppner served as volunteers in the Philippines, where they witnessed the human tragedy brought on by illegal logging and unsustainable land management systems. Working with community leaders in nearby villages, the Deppners found a way to offer hope. They revitalized degraded lands by providing farmers with tree seed, technical training, and on-site planning assistance. People responded enthusiastically, joining in to save their homes and way of life.

 

After returning from their overseas assignments they continued what they had started, communicating by mail with rural community leaders, providing information, seeds, and training materials. Over the years TREES has assisted thousands of communities in planting millions of trees in 19 countries including Ghana, which have restored life to land that was previously degraded or abandoned.

 

Rêve En Vert has now teamed up with Trees for the Future to help offset the carbon of their shipping as well as supporting countries where we hope to do more artisan business in the future. A small percentage of all of our sales will now contribute to their cause, and we hope our customers feel as good about this as we do. Please visit trees.org for more information!
