Amber Lotus has always been supportive of environmental awareness and mindful living and promoting inspirational ideas through the pages of our calendars. We were one of the first calendar companies to use recycled paper and were an early member of Green America. We started our program of offsetting our tree usage and carbon footprint by planting trees and contributing funds to NativeEnergy. We continue that initial focus by using FSC certified paper and partnering with Trees for the Future. As of today, Amber Lotus Publishing has planted more than 330,000 trees with Trees for the Future. You can help us reach our goal of 5,000 more with your LIKE.
More about Trees for the Future
Trees for the Future is a nonprofit agroforestry resource center that helps communities in Central America, Africa, and Asia restore tree cover to their lands. TREES has planted 93 million trees since 1989; Amber Lotus Publishing has funded the planting of at least 330,000 trees through the Trees for the Future organization. In addition to removing CO2 from the atmosphere, these trees help restore degraded land, reverse deforestation, improve soil quality, and augment local standards of living. We are proud and honored to be an active partner in their tree planting program.
Trees for the Future celebrates 25 years of tree planting based on the understanding that the health and welfare of the land is directly related to the health and welfare of the people. With nearly a third of the world’s population living in poor farming communities, and farming being responsible for 80% of the deforestation across Africa, Latin America, and Asia, rural poverty is not a singular issue. It stems from environmental degradation and feeds social ills that create a cycle of hardship and dependence. TREES planting program is designed with three critical elements in mind: people, their profit, and our planet (3Ps) – their triple bottom line. To succeed in meeting this triple bottom line, they are focused on a scalable tree planting strategy – the forest garden approach – which generates sustainable economic, social, and environmental benefits.
