Reforestation - One Tree Planted
Naturally Healthy Pets has paired with One Tree Planted to help plant new trees and support Reforestation. To help support this, we have got a widget which appears in the bottom right of each page where you can donate to either grow one or more trees and we have a switch button on our cart page where you can donate to grow a tree with your order.

Why Are Trees Important To The Environment?
Trees help clean the air we breathe, filter the water we drink, and provide habitat to over 80% of the worlds terrestrial biodiversity. Forests provide jobs to over 1.6 billion people, absorb harmful carbon from the atmosphere, and are key to ingredients in 25% of all medicines. Have you ever taken an Aspirin? It comes from the bark of a tree!
Trees play an important role in the water cycle, grounding the water in their roots and releasing it into the atmosphere.
Here are some interesting facts about trees and the impact of deforestation around the world.
Trees and plants are being burned, degraded and logged at astonishing rates.
Every 1.2 seconds man destroys an area of forest the size of a football field.
More then half of the world's timber and 72% of paper is consumed by 22% of the world's population (the United States, Europe and Japan) worldwide, industrialized countries consume over twelve times more wood products per person than non-industrialized countries.
46% of the world's forests are already destroyed.
Climate Change. If forests are destroyed through logging or burning, their carbon is released into the atmosphere as carbon dioxide, a climate-changing greenhouse gas.
Deforestation comes in many forms, including fires, clear-cutting for Agriculture, ranching and development, unsustainable logging for timber, and degradation due to climate change.
20% of current greenhouse gas. Tropical forest destruction accounts for about 20 percent of current greenhouse gas emissions.
80,000 Acres of forests disappear from the Earth every day!
1.6 billion people rely on forests for their livelihoods.
The removal of trees without sufficient reforestation has had adverse impacts on biosequestration of atmospheric carbon dioxide, along with damage to habitat, biodiversity loss, and aridity.
Removing trees deprives the forest of portions of its canopy, which blocks the sun's rays during the day and holds in heat at night. This disruption leads to more extreme temperatures swings that can be harmful to plants and animals.
12.4 Million acres of forests are permanently converted to growing commodity crop, such as palm oil, each year.
3.5/10 Trees get chopped down and are processed into pulp for making paper products such as tissue paper, toothpaste, magazines and more..."
