With 2018 coming to a close, Verdant would like to help raise money for a worthy cause. As part of our commitment to Triple Bottom Line principles, we want to give back to the Planet. In addition to ongoing carbon offsets and volunteer efforts, we'd like to give back to our forests with an end of the year fundraiser as well.
The National Forest Foundation is a highly-rated charity, dedicated to an ambitious goal to plant 50 million trees in America's National Forests by 2023. Between intensifying wildfires, insect infestation and disease, our forests are under more pressure than ever, right as they're needed the most.
"By planting 50 million trees on our National Forests, we are investing in healthy forests for today and for future generations. Together, we’ll restore tens of thousands of acres of wildlife habitat, from the longleaf pine forests of Florida to the cedar groves of Alaska."
We are hoping to contribute in a meaningful way to NFF's goal, replanting trees and funding other conservation efforts in our National Forests. Any donations made during this fundraiser will be matched by Verdant and Jason, doubling the impact of our individual donations.
