Well, it's 2018. Happy New Year! Let's celebrate by honoring the companies that help preserve our precious Earth. Our first blog about tree planting companies gave some great exposure to smaller companies with great missions! So, here is [another] list of 10 companies that plant a tree for every product they sell:
Every product within the Oh My Woodness! collection has been carefully designed to feel authentic, exciting and playful. Oh My Woodness! is where the natural beauty of wood and bamboo meets the brightness and boldness of color. It creates a collection that both looks amazing and wins serious karma points!

For every item purchased from the Oh My Woodness! collection, money will go towards planting life saving trees in Haiti, Madagascar or Nepal.
Being Bountiful means to give abundantly. Whether that is to their customers or the environment, their aim is to give back more than they take so they have a positive impact on their community and the world around them. When starting Bountiful, they wanted to create a product that would last a lifetime and promote healthy eating, but they had a hard time getting over the fact that trees would be cut down to help make their products. So Bountiful Board Co. decided that for every board purchased, they would plant a tree. Although tree planting is at the root of Bountiful Board Co., they are focused on more than planting trees. They want to help change lives, both in their country and around the world.

Landyachtz has partnered with three organizations who not only plant trees around the world, but focus on educating communities on important farming practices, responsible forestry management efforts and long term economic solutions for struggling communities. The more boards they make and sell, the more trees they plant.
