One Tree Planted is Getting Wild with Nature this Valentine's Day

Ifyou've been following along with One Tree Planted for a while now, you probably know that we like to do things a little differently. Don't get us wrong, we LOVE all the roses, candy (fair trade of course), and pink hearts. But this year, we're channeling our wild sides and encouraging you to give the gift of wood! We're talking about gifting trees you animals! Okay, now that we have your attention, we're going to show you what we REALLY mean. And if you haven't picked up an eco-friendly gift for your sweetheart yet, we've got you covered.

Like many holidays, Valentine's Day can be pretty wasteful. And that's where we come in: not only is gifting a tree the perfect eco-friendly gift idea, it's also a super unique gift that's sure to delight any recipient. While the campaign is best suited for an adult audience, the e-cards we provide are versatile enough that you can gift a tree to anyone from your sweetheart to your grandma. There are several templates t0 choose from and you can include a custom message too. And of course, the option to plant trees all over the world in honor of your Valentine!

It Doesn't End There...

In addition to our awesome tree planting e-cards, a One Tree Planted campaign wouldn't be complete without engaging videos and fun educational assets. We wanted to find the balance between naughty and nice with an impactful call to action of planting a tree. 

Get Wild with Naughty Nature on Social Media

If you've been following us for a little while now, Naughty Nature might sound familiar. Last year we published the blog post, Naughty Nature: 9 Ways Nature will make you Blush on Valentine's Day. And not only did we revive the post, we've also been sharing captivating mini-stories on social media. These highlight some of nature's naughtiest moments from pine cone sex to how the heck dolphins manage to "do it" in the water! We really hope this gives you a chuckle, and you might just learn something along the way, because it is all 100% ecologically accurate. 

We're releasing one new naughty nature video each day until Valentine's so if you aren't following us on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter be sure to head over to your favorite platform and give us a follow so you don't miss out on the fun!

So there you have it! We hope we didn't make you blush TOO much. We wish you a happy Valentine's Day filled with love, sustainability, and nature. 

And don't forget to gift a tree for your honey. You can send them an e-card, or send it to yourself to print and share in person with a hug. Even if you're not a Valentine's Day kind of person, nature will definitely appreciate the love!

By gifting a tree, you will help to:

  • Reforest areas affected by environmental disasters
  • Restore native biodiversity to protect holistic ecosystems
  • Boost the liveliness of local communities
  • Trees play a very important role in our lives; they clean the air we breathe, filter the water we drink, and provide habitat to more than 80% of the world's terrestrial biodiversity. Not to mention, forests provide jobs to over 1.6 billion people, absorb harmful carbon from the atmosphere, and are key ingredients in 25% of all medicines.
  • The trees you are helping to plant will create an incredible positive impact for nature, people, and wildlife. Since the need for reforestation is global and always changing, we will distribute your donation to a project where funding is most needed now.
  • Both you and the giftee will receive a personalized tree certificate (see gallery) with the recipient's name to thank you for your donation. The giftee will get a custom e-card created by you on your date of choice. We will also send you updates about this project, so you can track the impact your trees are having on the community and environment.
  • In order to maximize the impact of your donation across our multiple projects, we will plant a variety of tree species native to the area that we are reforesting. For example, we plant Polylepsis trees in the Andes since they have adapted to the extremely high altitude. We sometimes plant fruit trees in Africa for agroforestry in order to generate long-term benefits for local communities. In India, Avicennia alba mangroves are planted along the coast as they are resistant to the impact of lower tidal currents.
