“Healthy and growing forests remain the best technology for removing excess carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.”
Plant Trees with GSN
The GSN Tree Planting Initiative is premised on the urgent need to regenerate the earth using trees’ natural abilities to reverse climate change. We started this initiative to mobilize the spa and wellness industries to plant a total of 1 million trees.
How to Get Involved
However you choose to contribute to tree planting, signing up with GSN allows us to track the wellness community’s overall progress toward our one million-tree goal, rally around a common cause, and send a clear message that the spa and wellness industry cares to be a recognized champion of environmentalism. Existing and new members of the GSN network are encouraged to join this effort in one or more ways.
- Donate trees through the GSN/WeForest partnership.
- Plant trees on property.
- Continue an existing tree planting partnership (we recognize and applaud the great tree planting efforts and milestones that many businesses in our community have already achieved through other partnerships and we want to include your efforts towards our collective goal).
We are much more powerful and impactful if we unify across the industry and work together towards a greater good.
Use #GSNPlantsTrees so we can track your progress and share your stories.
SUSTAINABILITY IS VITAL, BUT ALONE IT’S NOT ENOUGH
Unfortunately, resources have been exploited to such an extent that it’s now imperative that we regenerate the earth by not only stopping climate change with sustainability measures, but actively reversing it to keep the planet healthy and habitable for all life.
Regenerating the forests is critical to saving the planet.
Through rampant deforestation and destruction of half of the earth’s topsoil we have destroyed much of the planet’s ability to capture CO2. (WeForest) As a result, the greenhouse gas normally held in trees and the soil goes, instead, into the atmosphere along with the excess we already produce. *Our initiative focuses on systematically planting new trees to specifically reverse these effects.
GSN Planet has chosen to partner with the WeForest organization because of the science-based methodology used to support the ground operations and the survival of the trees. Because we share a passion for preserving the planet and the people on it, we are excited to be working with this wonderful organization for our Tree Planting Initiative.
WeForest’s mission is to leverage corporate and scientific partnerships and empower communities to sustainably advance and implement innovative, high-standard, scalable, and lasting solutions to restore forest landscapes. Read more about WeForest here and how they are using science to guide their planting trees where they will do the most good.
WeForest’s Brazil Project
Focusing on Ecological Development and Livelihood Development
Donations collected through our initiative will contribute to WeForest’s Brazil project to support the Brazilian Atlantic Forest. Restoring the forest is extremely vital to safeguard the remaining biodiversity and combat the progressive loss of the world’s species and for our climate as well. The high carbon sequestration potential of second-growth forests in the Latin American tropics means the Atlantic Forest is a key player in the climate change agenda. This project aims to create forest corridors between remaining fragments, increasing tree cover and habitat connectivity for native species. The community-based nurseries, seed collection, and planting activities are under the management of local people who, thanks to this project, are empowered to earn a living while restoring the forest.
