Get Roots with Grassroots This Earth Day

Get Roots with Grassroots This Earth Day
Grassroots Earth Day One Tree Planted
After we celebrate the Cannabis sativa Cannabis indica plants on 4/20, let us also celebrate our love and commitment to our environment. April 22nd is Earth Day and we've teamed up with a fabulous organization to contribute to global restoration efforts: One Tree Planted.

One Dollar, One Tree.

Based in Vermont, this non-for-profit's mission is simple: "one dollar. one tree."  Between North America, South America, Asia, and Africa, trees are planted to improve conditions from forest fires and floods and protect diverse habitats.  One Tree Planted uses a variety of tree species to best-fit each project and partners with local communities to create jobs; these are just two ways this organization is committed to the people and plants within our biosphere.  Why trees? "Trees help clean the air we breathe, filter the water we drink, and provide a habitat to over 80% of the world's terrestrial biodiversity." That's why.  

One Hat, One Tree!

This Earth Day, Grassroots California aims to impact the world in a greener way than usual: every hat purchased = one tree planted! We'll also be donating a portion of all proceeds between April and June to One Tree Planted to make an even bigger impact this year! Your purchases could even make a difference in our own backyard!  Colorado is just one state, with over 24.4 million acres of forest, that benefit from One Tree Planted's efforts. Pine, Oak, or Aspen saplings are planted locally, depending on the area and time of year.  Last year, we planted 256 trees from your hat purchases made on Earth Day!
