WE'RE PLANTING 1 TREE FOR EVERY paper Purchase made
Striving to play my part in the up keep of our planet, I am donating $1 USD to One Tree Planted for every paper purchase that is made! I realise that trying to be eco-conscious all the time can be very difficult, but as I use paper to create my artwork and prints, it makes sense to give back to the forests who have already given to me so generously.
OUR ECO PROMISE: HOW DOES IT WORK?
If you make a purchase from Hous of Halcyon then $1 from the total will be donated on your behalf to the non-profit organisation One Tree Planted, which relies on the kindness of our Earths advocates to help it plant one tree for every dollar given. As a donor, I are able to select which location on our beautiful planet that I would like our trees to be planted; Asia, Africa, North America and Latin America. To start with, I am pledging Indonesia in Asia, as it holds a special place in my heart!
The time between the donation and the actual tree planting will vary depending on the region I have chosen and the time of year. Planting usually happens during the rainy season, when the soil provides optimum conditions for tree survival.
When the planting session takes place, One Tree Planted will forward an update with photos and information provided by their reforestation partners. This will include details such as the tree species planted, expected survival rates, community engagement, and ecological benefits.
This is how your $1 will be spent to plant the trees:
$.50 -.85 for one tree sapling to be grown at a nursery
$.20 - $.30 per tree to be planted
$.08 - $.20 per tree average with transport costs, material costs
$.10 - $.22 ongoing maintenance of trees
$.12 - $.15 operating costs
$.03 - $.05 credit card processing fees, transaction costs
