July - Tree update
Thanks to all your orders during a busy July, your trees are being planted to help protect Orca Whales!
Sadly, there are only 75 Southern Resident Orcas remaining (often referred to as killer whales), swimming the waters off the coast of North America from California to British Columbia. This makes them an endangered species and in need of our help.
We know it sounds strange, but planting trees around rivers and streams that feed into the Orca's habitat reduces water contamination, lowers toxicity, protects salmon spawning grounds, therefore improving the Orca's food supply. These projects will also bring benefits to other species of wildlife, as well as the communities in the surrounding areas.
Thanks again for all your orders and helping us change the world, little by little!
