Trees for the Future was founded in 1989, and since then they have planted over 100 million trees around the world and helped tens of thousands of people plant their way out of poverty. "We don’t just plant trees for their ecological and environmental benefits, but to benefit people in need. We are experts in agroforestry, which combines agriculture and forestry to create integrated and sustainable land-use systems. We address the problem of degraded and over-worked lands by providing farmers with tree seed, technical training, onsite planning and assistance, and an overall reclamation plan. These sustainable land management practices not only feed people and help the poor gain income, but also improve the environment and quality of life for everyone."
The Lucy & Leo Project
Our commitment to giving back and being socially responsible is very important to Lucy & Leo. We have started a new project, where we partner with local schools in Philadelphia and New York to teach kids, through sewing, about their immediate impact on the environment and their communities. We help them design and make stuffed animals and tote bags out of the scrap fabric that would otherwise end up in our landfills, and then donate the finished product to local shelters to help children in need.
