Today is Arbor Day, a holiday in which we are encouraged to plant trees. I don’t know about you, but I do not have the resources or the experience necessary to plant a tree today. However, I have supported companies that plant trees for every product that you buy.
Every year, I send out Christmas cards featuring photos of my dogs, and I design and send them through a company called Paper Culture. “Instead of cutting down forests to fill your order,” says Paper Culture, “we use post-consumer waste and wood alternatives. We plant a tree with every order.”
For our wedding, my husband and I ordered wine from ONEHOPE. At ONEHOPE, every bottle of wine that you order makes some sort of social impact: helping to end childhood hunger, getting shelter animals adopted, providing clean drinking water, etc. (Ordering California Sauvignon Blanc supports the environment.)
