At ONRŪ, we believe in the importance of health and wellbeing. This extends not only to humans, but also to the planet. Our health is directly connected to the health of the planet, so we must do everything we can to look after the planet, replenish the resources that we use, and not take advantage of nature’s bounty. The importance of wildlife, trees, plants and herbs is not lost on us, as we use many of these natural herbs and plants in our products. Due to our commitment to sustainability and giving back to causes that benefit the environment, for our launch we partnered with the National Forest Foundation to plant one tree in America’s National Forests for each product we sell. Let us tell you a bit more about the NFF, and the importance of planting trees and maintaining America’s forests.
The National Forest Foundation
The National Forest Foundation (NFF) is the leading organization working on behalf of the American public on forest conservation efforts and promoting responsible recreation. Chartered by Congress, the NFF manages and promotes the health of the 193-million-acre National Forest System. Their current mission is to plant 50 million new trees in America’s National Forests.
Why is planting trees so important?
Trees are important for combatting climate change because they are the most efficient natural system for pulling carbon dioxide (CO2) out of the atmosphere. Too much CO2 in the atmosphere contributes to heating the planet, which brings about a number of environmental issues including rising sea levels, increased temperatures and more wildfires and storms. Trees are also important for improving the quality of the air we breathe, the quality of the water that we drink and providing habitat and shelter for wildlife. A lot of the resources that we rely upon come from our National Forests, such as timber, gas, oil and minerals. Millions of Americans get their drinking water directly from watersheds contained within National Forests and Grasslands, including in major cities such as Atlanta, Denver, Los Angeles and Seattle.
As a result of this partnership, buying an ONRŪ product will benefit not only your own health, but also that of the planet.
