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. This project is currently supporting Longleaf Pine Restoration. Learn more

With your help, we will:

  • Protect wildlife habitat and increase biodiversity
  • Restore essential watersheds for soil stability and erosion control
  • Sequester carbon in the biomass of the forests through climate stability
  • Longleaf pine forests are among the most biodiverse in North America and provide habitat for numerous threatened and endangered species. Longleaf pine forests are well-adapted to a warming climate as longleaf pine is a resilient species that is fire-dependent, drought-tolerant, and long-lived. Reforestation of longleaf pine ecosystems- to increase, maintain, and enhance the species- has been identified as a priority area within America's Longleaf Range Wide Conservation Plan. 🌲
  • Our longleaf pine reforestation project will restore habitats, control soil erosion, and sequester carbon in an effort to stabilize the climate in the area. Not only will wildlife benefit from the clean air and water provided by the planted trees, but the surrounding community will, too. This project will work with a variety of landowners whose responsible forest management and stewardship will only further increase the benefits for species residing on the lands. Some of the most notable species that will benefit from habitat restoration include gopher tortoises, red-cockaded woodpeckers, and eastern indigo snakes
  • A personalized tree certificate (see gallery) to say thanks for your donation. We'll also send you updates about our Longleaf Pine Restoration project, so you can track the impact your trees are having on the ground!
  • We always plant a mix of diverse, native species from local nurseries. This project is working to replenish longleaf forests, so the native species grown in the nurseries will mainly be longleaf pine, but also include shortleaf pine and loblolly pine.
