Why plant trees? Trees have long been our greatest tool in the effort to capture carbon and recent studies have determined that one of the most effective ways to combat climate change is by simply planting more trees. Since its founding in 1991, Good Earth has been passionate about social and environmental responsibility with their 'Do Good, Feel Good' initiatives. Good Earth is committed to the environment and the community through making choices that can 'do good,' so, the partnership with TreeEra is a natural fit.

'Like the proverb says: 'The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now', says co-founder, Nan Eskenazi. 'It's important to start now - not only by planting trees through our partnership with TreeEra, but using our voice to inspire our caring community of coffee lovers to do the same.'

'One tree does an incredible amount of good, but a community of people and businesses can make a huge and incredible impact,' says TreeEra founder, Michael Fitzgerald. 'Partnerships with companies like Good Earth are crucial to building our community that together can help combat climate change.'

Good Earth's new partnership shows Canadians that it's never been easier to plant a tree ? drink coffee! For every bag of retail coffee sold, Good Earth will donate 15 cents towards planting trees in Canada. To date, TreeEra has planted for 68,000 trees, and Good Earth is passionate about helping TreeEra reach its goal of planting 1 billion trees. Together, we can accomplish more.

About TreeEra

While there are many ways to reduce our carbon footprint, TreeEra wanted to provide people and businesses with a convenient and simple way to help by planting trees. (www.treeera.com)
