PurParket + Tree Canada: Our Green Report Card
This year has brought many ups and downs. We wanted to share some positive news to lift your spirits and reinforce your faith in people and organizations trying to do their part!
In 2020 we partnered with Tree Canada as we believe that we need to give back and not only promote sustainability but also be an active participant in aiding in the cause to make the world a greener place. Tree Canada focuses on areas that require afforestation or reforestation due to natural causes or human activity. Partnering with local municipalities and First Nations communities, Tree Canada is able to assist in restoring forests & habitats and bringing cleaner air, waterways and soil to Canadian regions.
Here is how we did. Our stats:
● How many trees were planted? 2500 saplings were planted.
● Types of saplings planted? Sitka Spruce, Red Cedar, Balsam Fir, Alder & Willow
● Where were the saplings planted? The Tranquil Creek Watershed on Vancouver Island.
This watershed is located in the traditional territory of the Tla-o-qui-aht First Nation and supports the habitats of 5 types of Pacific Salmon, Black Bears and Black-tailed Deer just to name a few.
Not only does the planting of trees support local habitats, a mature tree will also absorb 48 lbs. of carbon dioxide and exchange it for oxygen in just one year.
So next time you take a deep breath of fresh air, hugging a tree might not be a bad idea.
We look forward to partnering with Tree Canada again and supporting further growth in Canadian forests in 2021 as part of our ongoing green initiatives. Our aim is to continue to plant another 2500 saplings. Stay tuned to learning about the next region we plan to focus our reforestation efforts.
After all, from little seeds comes big change!
