“Forests are the lungs of the land, purifying the air and giving fresh strength to our people.”
– Franklin D. Roosevelt.
We deeply care about the planet and creating a business that gives back to nature and helps to reduce global carbon emissions. Candere Candle Co. is partnering with One Tree Planted to plant one tree for every candle sold. Trees clean our air and water, create habitats for biodiversity, contribute to our health and well-being and provide homes to our wildlife.
Candere Candle Co. is a proud partner of One Tree Planted and committed to helping to make a positive impact on our environment one tree and one candle at a time.
Why are trees important to the environment?
Trees help to clean the air we breathe. Through their leaves and bark, they absorb harmful pollutants and release clean oxygen for us to breathe. One tree can absorb up to 48lbs of carbon and helps to reduce the effects of climate change.
Trees filter the water we drink and play a key role in reducing the risk of natural disasters like floods and landslides. Their intricate root systems act like filters, removing pollutants and slowing down the water’s absorption into the soil, helping to prevent waterslide erosion and flooding.
Trees provide a habitat to over 80% of the world’s terrestrial biodiversity. A single tree can be home to hundreds of species of insect, fungi, moss, mammals, and plants. Without trees, forest creatures would have nowhere to call home.
Social Impact -
Forests provide jobs to over 1.6 billion people around the globe. Sustainable tree farming provides timber to build homes and shelters, and wood to burn for cooking and heating. Food-producing trees provide fruit, nuts, berries, and leaves for consumption by both humans and animals.
Trees help reduce stress and anxiety and allow us to reconnect with nature. In addition, shade provided by tree coverage helps protect our skin from the ever-increasing harshness of the sun. Trees also provide key ingredients to 25% of medicines.
Trees help cool the planet by absorbing and storing harmful greenhouse gases like carbon dioxide into their trunks, branches, and leaves — and releasing oxygen back into the atmosphere. One tree can absorb an average of 48 lbs. of carbon dioxide per year, making cities a healthier, safer place to live.
