You can redeem 300 TerraCycle points to have a tree planted in an American forest through Arbor Day Foundation. Donating your points in return for having a tree planted makes us a step closer to having a cleaner, less polluted atmosphere.
Trees are a vital aspect of maintaining a healthy planet as trees act as sponges, absorbing carbon dioxide from our atmosphere. Planting a tree is thus a direct benefit to all living organisms on Earth. According to Arbor Day Foundation, over the course of 50 years, a single tree can generate $31,250 of oxygen, provide $62,000 worth of air pollution control, recycle $37,500 worth of water, and control $31,500 worth of soil erosion. Giving a tree is a gift that not only brings benefits to all on Earth today but benefits generations to come.
Arbor Day Foundation has grown to become the largest nonprofit membership organization dedicated to planting trees, with more than 1 million members, supporters, and valued partners. The impact they make on our world is accomplished through their conservation and education programs which aim to inspire people to plant, nurture and celebrate trees.
