One Candle = One Tree
Planting trees improves the health of the planet and helps slow down climate change.
Helping the planet doesn't need to be diffucult, that’s why we’ve made it super simple to treat yourself while treating the planet at the same time.
As of 9th Dec we have planted
Trees in the Amazon Rainforest
We are official reforestation partners of One Tree Planted, helping them on their mission to restore forests, create habitat for biodiversity, and make a positive social impact around the world.
One Tree Planted is a non-profit organisation that has planted over 30 million trees. They have projects all over the world, and we help support their Amazon Rainforest reforestation projects.
TREES WHERE THEY ARE NEEDED MOST
The Amazon Rainforest is the the world's largest rainforest ecosystem, spanning 9 countries and home to many rare species, including tapirs, spider monkeys, jaguars, and caiman.
The Amazon Rainforest holds an estimated 90-140 billion metric tons of carbon, and plays a critical role in the fight against climate change. Unfortunately, due to logging, unsustainable agriculture, and forest fires, we have already lost one million square kilometers to deforestation.
Your donations are equally split between two tree planting projects in the Amazon Rainforest.
Their goal is to replant biodiverse primary forests, and restore degraded land.
As well as tree planting, the projects work with local farmers to establish agroforestry, providing a long term income that is sustainable economically as well as environmentally.
A big driver of deforestation in the Amazon is over-farming. By balancing sustainable agroforestry with native tree plantation, we can restore nutrients to the soil and restore the rainforests.

Project Brazil in Brief
Where: Amazon Rainforest, State of Pará, Brazil
Goal: 410,000 trees planted
Planted Species: Cocoa (Theobroma cacao) variety of wood species, Banana (Musa sp)
Objectives: Fight against deforestation, restoration of degraded ecosystems, biological recovery and soil fertility, protection of biodiversity, creating forest corridors for biodiversity and preservation of endangered species
Activities: Establish agroforestry systems (based on Cocoa) in small rural properties
Community: Job creation and increase income from agroforestry, as well as indirect jobs created in transportation, marketing and processing logistics.
Project Peru in Brief
Where: Amazon, Ucayali, Peru
Goal: 592,163 trees planted
Planted species: White Bolaina (Guazuma crinita), Capirona (Calycophyllum Spruceanum, Capirona mahogany (Swietenia macrophylla
Objectives: Fight against deforestation, recovery of degraded soil, carbon sequestration, protection of biodiversity, recovery of flora and fauna, developing forest resistance and resilience to environmental imbalances (droughts, insect pests, etc.)
Activities: Replanting and restorations, underpinning and/or reseeding of areas 2 months after initial seedlings are planted
Community: Benefits 4 native communities, improving the productivity and economic value of 410 hectares of land. Improving water quality, providing fertile and stable soils.
