TikTokers Plant 10,000 Trees by Sharing Their Best Eco Hacks
There is something for everyone on TikTok, even you nature-loving tree huggers! During Earth Month, we teamed up with TikTok to challenge all of you to share your best eco-friendly hacks for sustainable living. We promised to plant a tree for every video posted that used #EcoHacks. Well the results were INCREDIBLE and we are thrilled to announce that we will be planting 10,000 trees on behalf of this amazing TikTok community!
Here's All Hackin' the Details!
The aim of the campaign was quite simple. Show us your #EcoHacks and we will plant a tree! Whether you are a beginner at sustainability with your reusable straw or you've mastered the art of composting, we wanted to see it! TikTokers found creative ways to show off their hacks. Some gave us tutorials on their favorite zero-waste tricks and others showed off their up-cycling skills. And while most TikTok challenges are super fun, we want to kick things up a notch so...
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! The song elevated these eco hacks with this amazing earth rap about all the benefits to a green way of living! For those music driven TikTokers, this song was a perfect place to start to find a way to support the planet.
What Impact Will These Trees Have?
Glad you asked! The trees from this campaign will be allocated to our amazing reforestation project in Chippewa National Park in Minnesota! Chippewa National Forest spans more than 600,000 acres, home to some of the state's last old-growth forests. Notably, the Chippewa National Forest has one of the highest densities of bald eagle nesting sites in the country, with more than 150 pairs nesting in the forest annually. In addition to preserving wildlife habitat, this project will also focus on restoration from wind damage, tree diseases, and insect damage that have left the forest vulnerable. Reforestation can keep the Chippewa National Forest healthy for generations to come, and preserve the culture of the Leech Lake Band of Ojibwa, who have a deep connection with the forest.
