Village Green has partnered with Trees for the Future and will plant one tree in a developing country every time a customer makes a purchase that includes a Pathway product.
Trees for the Future is a locally based nonprofit organization whose mission is to plant trees within rural communities in the developing world, enabling them to restore their environment, grow more food, and build a sustainable future.
Trees for the Future also works with local farmers and community groups to help them better support themselves, and to restore degraded lands to sustainable productivity by planting trees that not only thrive in poor soil conditions, but that also benefit the local area in a multitude of ways. Through their worldwide network of technicians, volunteers, and community leaders, they help rehabilitate environments across the globe.
With the help of our customers, we’re looking forward to creating positive impact through our partnership with Trees for the Future.
