THE STORY:

If you’re on this page, you probably know that I’m crazy about forests and other ecosystems, outdoor spaces, biodiversity, and wildlife. You probably feel the same.

But, even if you never go outside, every day you benefit from forests, whether it’s by the wood in your houses and furniture, the paper in your desk, or the cute baby animals in your Twitter feed. Every day you also benefit from places that used to be forested - perhaps the chocolate in your afternoon snack, the beef in that occasional burger, or the palm oil in your ice cream, lipstick, shampoo, and detergent (and so many other things you toss in that shopping cart).

Most of you probably know the (important!) role that trees play in climate change and care about stopping deforestation. If, for some strange reason you dislike trees, I bet you do care about the many indigenous and local (human) communities around the globe that depend on forests for their livelihoods.

Even if you don't like trees or people, it's important to take responsibility for your purchasing habits and demand that companies provide you with legal and sustainably harvested products that don't lead to deforestation or land conflicts.

If anything I've said so far applies to you – and I’m sure it does – please join me in supporting the work of Forest Trends. 

Forest Trends is an international, environmental non-profit organization that works to fully recognize the values that nature provides to society. Forests, coral reefs, tall grass prairies, and marine ecosystems provide fundamental services to us including carbon sequestration, clean water, storm protection for our coastlines, stable climate, and habitat for the rich biodiversity of the planet. Forest Trends employs cutting-edge market mechanisms to make these priceless environmental services valuable in mainstream capital markets.

For 15 years Forest Trends has searched for and piloted innovative projects that create market-based incentives and payment mechanisms to value environmental ecosystems. It has worked alongside local communities and indigenous peoples, and built partnerships between governments, financial institutions, and civil society to pioneer approaches that invest in the ecosystem services of our planet.
