OZARKE PARTNERS WITH REFORESTATION NON-PROFIT ONE TREE PLANTED
“One for One” Initiative Dedicated To Planting Trees Around The World
Houston, July. 13, 2022 – Ozarke, a global home decor and lighting company, today announced a partnership with One Tree Planted that aims to plant trees for landscape restoration. For every order purchased, Ozarke will plant one tree.
“Working with One Tree Planted is a great fit for Ozarke,” said Ozarke founder and Chief Executive Officer, Alex Elsaadi. “Sustainability is at the core of our business model, and while we make a tremendous impact upcycling plastic waste, it’s great to have another way to give back and help the environment.”
The objectives of this new partnership include:
- Supporting global reforestation efforts
- Empowering consumers with sustainable actions
- Raising awareness about the importance of ecosystem restoration
Planting trees is one of the best ways to combat the damaging effects of climate change. Trees help clean the air we breathe, filter the water we drink, and provide habitat to over 80 percent of the world’s terrestrial biodiversity. Trees also provide tremendous social impacts by providing jobs to over 1.6 billion people, empowering women in underdeveloped nations, and supporting communities devastated by environmental damage.
“We’re excited for the opportunity to work with Ozarke on such an impactful project,” said One Tree Planted founder and Chief Environmental Evangelist, Matt Hill. “We admire the company’s commitment to planting a tree for every order sold. It’s a prime example of how home decor brands can make positive change for our planet.”
The partnership is designed to be simple for customers to get involved in global reforestation. For every order sold from Ozarkes’ inventory, the company will give $1 to One Tree Planted to plant one tree. The trees are planted by local partner organizations and community volunteers in areas where there has been deforestation.
