Plant Trees - Clean the Air - Cool the Globe!
Help Circle Bracelets and American Forests plant trees to improve our environment!
Circle Bracelets supports American Forests to restore forests and reduce pollution.
For every order placed with us, we will plant a tree on your behalf.
Why American Forrest?
American Forests is the nation's oldest (501C3) non-profit conservation organization, founded in 1875. They are a world leader in tree planting for environmental restoration, a pioneer in the science and practice of urban forestry and a primary communicator of the benefits of trees and forests.
Where Does American Forrest Plant Trees?
American Forests has planted over 20 million new trees in environmental restoration projects throughout North America and in many foreign lands. Your trees will be planted in current US projects that are helping alleviate many significant environmental problems from wildfire restoration, riparian tree planting to stabilize river banks to rebuilding wildlife habitat for birds and animals.
How do trees clean the air?
During photosynthesis, a tree "inhales" carbon dioxide (CO2) from the air then separates the carbon from the oxygen molecules. The carbon is absorbed by the tree and stored in its wood and roots and then the tree "exhales" pure oxygen back into the air for us to breathe. This process, called sequestration is how forests have always helped regulate the earth's atmospheric balance. Trees act as natural filters.
How do trees cool the globe?
Air pollution is a global problem that has local solutions. Burning fossil fuel adds pollutants including greenhouse gases to the atmosphere. Carbon dioxide (CO2) is a by-product of burning fossil fuels. A substantial amount of atmospheric CO2 comes from automobile emissions. Carbon dioxide is one of the most powerful of the greenhouse gases and is the principle contributor to increased global warming. Trees absorb the CO2, store the carbon in their wood, roots and leaves then release the oxygen back into the atmosphere.
