In January, Boulder, CO-based Celestial Seasonings partnered with Trees for the Future to plant 1 million trees in developing countries.


With consumers’ help, the promotional effort reached its goal last month. Now, the popular purveyor of natural and organic teas is extending the online tree-planting program through April 30 in honor of Earth Month.

For each virtual tree planted, Celestial Seasonings will sponsor the planting of one live tree. Up to 50,000 trees will be planted, and you can add yours to the online forest.

Program participants can also find information on how trees benefit the environment and economies of emerging nations by improving air, water and soil quality; promoting biodiversity; and generating additional income.

Since 1988, Trees for the Future has planted more than 70 million trees in Central America, Africa and Asia, helping thousands of communities improve their livelihoods and environment.
