Every phone we sell in June will help plant 10 trees
Planning to buy a new phone? There’s no better time than now. Because for every new phone we sell this month, we’ll make a donation to Trees for the Future to plant 10 trees in sub-Saharan Africa.
These trees will have a direct impact on the Earth and the lives of local people. They’ll be planted as part of Trees for the Future’s Forest Garden Program, which helps African families change their lives by planting fast-growing trees, fruit and nut trees, hardwoods, and food crops together in forest gardens. These gardens then provide families with sustainable food sources, firewood, livestock feed, products to sell and a 400 percent increase in their annual income in only four years.
The goal of Trees for the Future is to enable hundreds of millions of families in Africa to escape hunger and poverty by transforming overused and exhausted lands into forest gardens. When local people plant forest gardens, they make more money, grow more food and build a more reliable future. They stop erosion, fix nitrogen in the soil, cool the land and boost biodiversity. They eat healthier and live happier.
And trees do much more, of course. Every tree removes carbon from the air and releases oxygen. Trees provide shade and a home for birds. They clean our water and lift our mood every day.
So if you’re planning to buy a new phone, there is no better time than this month. Do it now and soon your purchase will help plant 10 new trees give a family in Africa a better future. CREDO Mobile has planted close to 2 million trees worldwide through donations to tree planting organizations.
