Planting Seeds for the Future with the Arbor Day Foundation
Picture this. You wake up on a chilly Autumn morning, walking outside on the back deck with a warm cup of coffee, in a cozy sweater. Before you, all you can see for miles and miles is beautiful leaves in the colors of Fall. The smell of pine trees wafts through the air. It is silent, on a morning when most animals are still sleeping, and birds have flown south for the Winter. In this moment, you feel a peace and serenity, amazed at God’s creation, and fulfilled by the beauty of The Great Outdoors.
While this scene still exists in many areas throughout the world, the rate at which forest expanses are being destroyed is growing every year. Forest acreage is cut down every second. It’s estimated that within a century, there will be no rainforests remaining (according to Conserve Energy). It’s our responsibility to steward our great outdoors.
This week, Sevenly brings back our ever-popular Great Outdoors Collection, which plants 7 trees for every shirt purchased, in support of the Arbor Day Foundation.
“Trees are simply amazing,” as the Arbor Day website notes. “They clean air and water, slow climate change, ease poverty and hunger, prevent species loss, and feed the human soul. All we need to do is plant and care for them. Let’s work together to make it happen around the world!”
We’re excited to support the Arbor Day Foundation in their mission of planting and caring for trees and forests, so that our beautiful earth can continue to thrive and people and communities can fully flourish.
