152217 Trees planted
We are saving the environment - one tree at a time! We are especially proud of our partnership with Trees for the Future: Together with your support we are helping nature & work against hunger, poverty and deforestation by planting a tree for every product purchased by you! This helps support impoverished small holder farmers and revitalises degraded lands. Thanks to you we have been able to donate over 100,000 trees and the number is growing each day!

Our Green Mission
We knew from the start that we wanted to support nature and help sustain it. For this reason we are working to keep up sustainable standards & eco-friendly production and together with Trees for the Future to ensure that our entire production process remains environmentally friendly and sustainable and we give back to nature at the same time.
Who are Trees For The Future?
Since 1989, Trees for the Future has been fighting for the reduction of CO2 emissions as well as the improvement of social grievances and have grown to become one of the biggest climate protection organisations in the world.
We destroy trees at a rate of 50 soccer fields per minute and with your help Trees For The Future are trying to restore those trees throught afforestation. The charity organisation is most active in developing countries of Africa, Latin America and Southern Asia where smallholder farming families still use agricultural practices that are effective short-term but are destructive in the long term.

Helping 125,000 families by planting 500,000,000 trees until 2025!
Destructive farming and extensive chemical use have increasingly degraded important agricultural land and caused the deforestation of large surrounding areas. Not just the environment but especially the families using those practices suffer from the consequences. To save farmers from sinking into a downward spiral, Trees for the Future have brought to life the Forest Garden project.
By planting specific types of fast-growing trees, fruit trees, hardwoods and food crops in a systematic manner over a four year period, families can positively change their lives forever and find new sustainable food and income sources that will also benefit the environment. It preserves the biodiversity of the rainforest and saves endangered species from deforestation.
Did you know how much impact a single tree makes?
By buying a Woodcessories product, Trees for the Future can plant another tree and change another life for the better. We live in a part of the world where having trees and biodiversity is often taken for granted and the impact they have on our lives is underappreciated. But did you know that in arid regions just one tree can save lives? Help us make a difference!
Here's how your help matters:
One tree produces up to 20,000 litres of oxygen per day
That's 875 Liters O2 per Minute!
A mature tree can also filter and bind 20 kg CO2 per day. The older and bigger the tree, the more productive it is and that's why we need to protect them
One person alone consumes up to 2000 litres of it daily
and casually produces almost 10 liters of CO2 per hour.
No tree in the world can work that fast - and that's why we have to plant!
What a single tree can do:
- produce enough oxygen for up to 10 people every day
- filter carbon dioxide and thus slowing down climate change
- filter up to 100 kilograms of dust per year from the air
- to provide a habitat, protection and nesting places for over 6000 animal species
- provide a food source for wild animals, insects and birds
- provide shade and lower the felt temperature by 10 degrees
- promote cloud formation through water evaporation of 500L daily
- improve our immune system and offer us a place to relax
- offer an important building material for almost every trade
