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. Today, we're raising funds to create habitat for monarch butterflies in Mexico. Learn more

With your help, we will:

  • Create breeding habitat for monarch butterflies
  • Work with small-holder farmers for local community impact
  • Reduce soil erosion & prevent landslides
  • This project focuses on both farmland conversion and forest restoration to improve biodiversity habitats in an essential migration corridor for numerous species, most notably the Monarch butterfly. By densely planting native species with the cooperation of local landowners and indigenous communities, we can make sure that Senguio and Ocampo's natural beauty is restored for future generations of people and wildlife.. Thank you so much for your support of healthy forests! 🌲
  • Communities and landowners will be taught sustainable forestry practices such as proper planting techniques, sustainable harvesting, the importance of recycling and waste management, and land and plant protection. This will create jobs and opportunities for those most impacted by the project.
  • 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 partner will plant native species, including Oyamel pine, smooth-bark Mexican pine, Chihuahua pine, and Cupressus lindleyi.
