April 12, 2013

It’s another way that you can do your part for the planet this Earth Day. The Canopy Project plants trees that directly benefit communities, especially the world’s impoverished communities.
Why trees? Trees reverse the impacts of land degradation and provide food, energy and income, helping communities to achieve long-term economic and environmental sustainability. Trees also filter the air, help stave off the effects of climate change, and more.
Over the past three years, The Canopy Project has planted nearly two million trees in 18 countries. In Uganda, we planted 350,000 trees in three of the country’s most poverty-stricken districts. In Haiti, a region devastated by earthquakes, The Canopy Project planted 500,000 trees. In the United States, projects to restore urban canopies have been completed in New York, San Francisco, Los Angeles, St. Louis, Atlanta, Baltimore, Cleveland, Flint, and Chicago.
Now, we’ve made a commitment to The Global Poverty project to plant 10 million trees around the world over the next five years.
Join us, as Jaden Smith has, to make this goal a reality.
“The Canopy Project is trying to plant 10 million trees over the next 5 years… That’s major. We need to get to work.” – Jaden Smith
