TikTokers Can Help Plant 10,000 Trees by Sharing Their Best Eco Hacks

What is that One Tree Planted up to now? Why it's another fun way to help us get trees into the ground of course! We have teamed up with TikTok again to not only plant some trees but to rally the TikTok community for Earth Month to share their favorite eco hacks. For some, being eco-friendly can feel like a chore. But this initiative will spread lots of awareness on the little steps you can take towards a more sustainable life! Plus, for every TikTok posted we will plant a tree! (Up to 10,000 trees)

Ready to get to Eco Hackin'? Here's all the details!

Just one TikTok can plant one tree. One tree can sequester up to 22lbs of carbon per year. One tree can be home to hundreds even thousands of wildlife species and biodiversity. Just a couple of reasons why you should show off those #EcoHacks

The aim of the campaign is quite simple. Show us your #EcoHacks. Whether you are a beginner at sustainability with your reusable straw or you've mastered the art of composting, we want to see it! Find a creative way to show off your hack. Give us a tutorial or perhaps there is a silly dance to compliment your eco-friendly skills. But wait, there's MORE! 

We Made an Original Song!

Thanks to our awesome tree-loving community we were able to collaborate with a top-notch music producer to take this #EcoHacks vision to the next level! Elevate your eco hack with this amazing earth rap about all the benefits to a green way of living! If you're more of a music driven TikToker then this song is a good place to start!

Plant Trees Where They're Needed Most

As the need for reforestation is global and ever-changing, we feature where trees are most needed now. For Treecember, we're planting trees that support a global forest fire recovery fund. Learn more

With your help, we will:

  • Reforest lands damaged by record-setting fires
  • Support healthy habitat for iconic biodiversity
  • Plant tree species that will helpΒ reduce future fire impact
  • This holiday season, we’re planting trees in areas around the world that have been severely affected by forest fires and aren't able to recover a healthy ecosystem on their own. The most common naturally-caused wildfires occur during droughts or dry weather, and under these circumstances, trees and other vegetation are converted to flammable fuel. Human-caused forest fires can be a result of various activities like unregulated slash and burn agriculture, equipment failure or engine sparks, and discarded cigarettes.

    After wildfires, reforestation is essential in areas where the fire intensity burned off available seed supply within the soil, and/or where there are not enough healthy trees still growing and producing new seeds nearby. Reforestation starts once professional assessments have been made to determine where human intervention would be the most ecologically beneficial. Help restore these vital ecosystems by planting a tree. 🌿
  • Every year, forest fires are increasing in size and severity, damaging vital ecosystems and creating a need for millions of trees. Some major consequences of forest fires include significant loss of wildlife, loss of vegetation, soil erosion, air pollution, and greenhouse gas emissions.

    With so much fire damage, reforestation is essential to catalyze the environmental recovery process. The trees are carefully planted to prevent invasive species from colonizing burn scars and restore quality habitat for native biodiversity. One Tree Planted is connecting with on-the-ground partners to establish viable reforestation projects when the recently affected regions are ready for planting. This fund will contribute to planting projects in British Columbia, Idaho, Ghana, Portugal, and beyond. Let's get to work! 🌲
  • A personalized tree certificate (see gallery) to say thanks for your donation. We'll also send you updates about this project, so you can track the impact your trees are having on the community and environment.
  • To maximize the impact of your donation, our partners on the ground will determine the most appropriate species of tree and shrubs. We only plant native tree species that will restore the local ecosystem, re-establish wildlife habitat, and reduce the likelihood of future fires.
