All about OneTreePlanted & where your trees are planted

All about OneTreePlanted & where your trees are planted - Livom

You've heard about our Tree Pledge at Livom and you're just imagining some of the Livom team planting trees somewhere in the tropics of Brazil?

A nice idea - in fact, we would love to lend a hand and plant trees ourselves. However, the reality currently looks different, but what is not yet, can still become.

The Livom team is located far from the tropics, in tranquil Amriswil and Zurich. Here we make sure that you find the best selection of modular sofas, chairs and tables in the Livom online store. Sustainability is a big topic with us, as you probably already noticed. However, planting trees is unfortunately not (yet) one of our own tasks 😉.

But who will plant the trees then?

We are incredibly happy that we have found the perfect partner OneTreePlanted the perfect partner for the reforestation of important forests. When Livom was launched, we already knew that we not only wanted to sell great and sustainable furniture, but at the same time do something good for the environment with every order.

When we came across OneTreePlanted, it was immediately clear to us that we wanted to work with precisely this organization, because it is involved all over the world and now oversees an incredible number of projects.

OneTreePlanted is a non-profit organization with an important mission that we fully stand behind: Global reforestation and the preservation of important habitats. The commitment of the many employees and helpers at OneTreePlanted makes it possible for us to simply do something good for the environment.

The non-profit organization from the USA has been around since 2014 and is becoming more and more popular. In 2020, over 10 million new trees have already been planted by OneTreePlanted and this in over 28 countries and on 6 continents.

Your order makes you a tree sponsor

Wondering exactly what happens after you place your order?

When you order something from us, we donate a portion of the proceeds to OneTreePlanted. With the donations received, OneTreePlanted can plant new trees in regions where they are urgently needed. So your order makes you a tree sponsor and every tree sponsor is incredibly important.

The organization collects the donations in each case and at the same time various partners of the organization plant seedlings, which are then planted at the optimal time in the respective areas.

Where will the trees be planted?

We are often asked where exactly the donated trees are planted. The truth is that we would prefer to help everywhere - but one thing at a time.

OneTreePlanted is now active all over the world and strives to reforest the most important forests and areas with endangered species. The organization thus plants trees in the areas where they are urgently needed.

At the end of each month, we have a choice of which OneTreePlanted projects we would like to support. When we started Livom, we donated your tree donations to reforestation in the Amazon rainforest.

The Amazon rainforest stretches across 9 countries and is home to 30% of the world's plant and animal species. In addition, this area provides 20% of our oxygen, which we need to survive. For this reason, we supported the "lungs of our planet" in the first months.

However, there are many more countries and areas that we would like to provide with tree donations.

Currently, all Livom tree donations are going to Spain - more precisely to the Urdaibai Biosphere Reserve in the Basque Country, because reforestation is also urgently needed here. Soil erosion and soil loss are a major problem here, but the general water cycle is also to be improved through targeted planting.

So you see: Your tree donation arrives exactly where it is needed. Depending on the area, the goal is not only to preserve biodiversity, but also to leave a positive mark on society.

In some regions, for example, sustainable agroforestry and tree planting create important livelihoods and jobs. The positive impact that tree planting has on society in the respective areas is another important reason why we are so behind OneTreePlanted.

Why we care so much about this project

Did you know that the world's forests provide habitat for over 80% of the species living on land? So over 80% of the plants and animals on land are found in our forests.

Forests are incredibly important when it comes to binding CO2 and thus cleaning our air. To be able to counteract climate change, we need more trees. That's why it's so important for us to give something back to Mother Nature. With every tree donation you can contribute to the stabilization of our climate.

Whether in Asia, Africa, Europe or Latin America - our forests are breathing again and that motivates us every day anew. Be a part of it too!
