One Tree Planted is proud to support Coldplay's pledge to focus on sustainability, and will be planting trees to create a restorative impact for nature through proceeds of classic album tee sales.
The band is committed to being climate positive and eco-conscious, and we're excited to
play a role as Coldplay's official reforestation partner!
By planting trees in areas that have been degraded or deforested, reforestation helps accelerate the re-establishment of healthy forest structure. This ultimately restores the forest canopy and preserves biodiversity within the ecosystem.
Trees also help clean the air we breathe, filter the water we drink, and provide habitat for wildlife. Forests provide jobs to over 1.6 billion people, absorb harmful carbon from the atmosphere, and are key ingredients in 25% of all medicines. Have you ever taken an Aspirin? It comes from the bark of a tree!
Whether it's forest fire restoration in British Columbia, habitat expansion in Brazil, or water capture in the Andes, every planting initiative has a unique story to tell. Check out some of our reforestation projects below and stay tuned for more details of Coldplay's global forest.
This reforestation initiative is helping restore the landscape in British Columbia after the Hanceville fire burned over 590,000 acres in 2017 and natural regeneration has not occurred.
The fire has impacted the forest, soils, riparian ecosystems, wildlife, and water quality. Local indigenous communities have seen their ability to hunt and gather food drastically altered. But reforestation will help revive the land! The goal of planting trees here is to re-establish a healthy forest that's resilient to climate change. This project will also create habitat for local wildlife species including mule deer, moose, black and grizzly bears, wolves, raptors, songbirds, and small mammals.
The Araguaia Biodiversity Corridor in Central Brazil will become the longest of all nature corridors on Earth and one of South America’s largest reforestation projects. Its scope is astonishing, with a total length of 2,600 kilometers and a width of up to 40 kilometers situated alongside the riverbanks of the entire Araguaia river.
The Corridor connects two of the world’s most vital ecosystems: the Amazon rainforest and the Cerrado savanna. The overall initiative will support many wildlife species and work directly with farmers and landowners for restoration throughout the length of the biodiversity corridor.
This project is the first multi country, large scale, grassroots initiative to restore the high altitude native forests of South America's high Andes. The overall objective is to restore 1 million hectares of high Andean forests across 6 countries over the next 25 years.
The trees planted here will help restore wetlands, safeguard existing forest, and protect critical Amazon headwaters. Working with local and indigenous communities, the seeds are collected from nearby Polylepis forests and grown in community nurseries. Once ready, they're planted on designated lands to expand existing forests, or to seed new ones in historically deforested areas.
Help Coldplay make an even bigger
impact by supporting a reforestation project in an area of need. Plant a tree today!
