WE ARE PLANTING A TREE WITH EACH ORDER
We are happy to announce that Valorhood has partnered with One Tree Planted to plant trees! For every order processed through Valorhood, we will plant one (1) tree. We are even more pleased to announce that this commitment began with our very first order. From day one Valorhood was planting trees through One Tree Planted with each sale! At Valorhood we believe in doing things right from the start!
Bonded By Nature
At Valorhood we love nature. Those that follow us on social media would know, we've mentioned it many times. Those that personally know us would vouch for it. From hiking or kayaking, to just sitting on the back deck and enjoying the large trees and animals that surround our home, we just simply love nature.
This love and respect for the land led us to begin the Valorhood journey. To supply plant based products that are made in a more sustainable manner. Trees are the backbone of our environment. We could not think of a better way to further extend our commitment to being sustainable than planting a tree with each order. Giving back to the land from which we take!
Who is One Tree Planted?
One Tree Planted is a non-profit organization that makes it easy for both individuals and businesses to plant trees. Each month they run a campaign towards areas where they feel trees are needed most, to which you can donate. Or you are free to choose one of their 6 regions to have your trees planted. These regions include North America, Latin America, Africa, Asia, Europe, and the Pacific. Donations are pooled together for each campaign, saplings are grown, and teams are formed to plant during the rainy season.
They take on all the heavy lifting, from coordinating the locations, building the teams, determining which native trees to be planted in designated areas, when that species of tree is most likely to thrive, monitoring the trees for success, and providing reports on the impact.
And since they began in 2014, One Tree Planted has planted over 40 million trees!
The Perks Of A Tree
Air - Trees don't just produce air but also clean the air we breathe. Absorbing harmful pollutants through their leaves or bark and releasing clean oxygen for us to breathe.
Climate - Increasing levels of carbon dioxide caused by deforestation and fossil fuel combustion trap heat in the atmosphere. Healthy trees act as carbon sinks, offset carbon and reducing the effects of climate change by absorbing and storing harmful gases into their trunks, branches, and leaves.
In one year a mature tree will absorb more than 48 pounds of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and release oxygen in exchange.
Water - Trees play a key role in capturing rainwater and reducing the risk of natural disasters like floods and landslides. Their intricate root systems act like filters, removing pollutants and slowing down the water’s absorption into the soil. This process prevents harmful waterslide erosion and reduces the risk of over-saturation and flooding.
Biodiversity - A single tree can be home to hundreds of species of insect, fungi, moss, mammals, and plants. Depending on the kind of food and shelter they need, different forest animals require different types of habitat. Without trees, forest creatures would have nowhere to call home.
