About One Tree Planted
To date, we have planted over 33 thousand trees around the world. Why trees you ask? Trees and fungi have an incredible prehistoric symbiotic relationship. Underground fungal networks help connect the roots to over 95% of terrestrial trees and plants on the planet. This has gained them the fitting title of “the internet of the forest”. The fungi help facilitate the uptake of nutrients for the trees, and in return the fungi receive sustainable sugars not needed by the tree roots. Fungi that connect to tree roots hold up to 70% of carbon in the soil and are crucial for our fight against climate change.
Your purchase supports global reforestation.
Making a purchase from Mushroom Revival is not only good for your own body, mind and spirit – it’s also a simple way to help the planet. For every product you purchase from Mushroom Revival, a tree is planted through the organization One Tree Planted. One Tree Planted is a 501(c)(3) non-profit founded in Shelburne, Vermont. Since 2014, they have been supporting amazing reforestation organizations around the world to get more trees into the ground.
How does it work?
One Tree Planted plants trees in Asia, Africa, and North and South America. Most projects help with restoration from floods and forest fires. These projects also help create jobs, strengthen communities, and protect habitats for biodiversity.
One Tree Planted pools donations from their contributors (like Mushroom Revival) and sends the funds to their reforestation partners. These partners are vetted to ensure a tree survival rate of 80-90%.
“Depending on the project, our partners choose the best tree species to plant and work with local communities to get them in the ground. Planting typically happens in the rainy season when the soil is wet and provides optimal conditions for tree survival.”
