At Paper High HQ, we are working with Treeapp to plant one tree for every order made on our website (paperhigh.com); no minimum spend required. We have concentrated our planting efforts within Nepal, as this is where a few of our producers are based, so that we can give even more back to the artisans we work with.
Here are a few reasons why planting in Nepal is important to us:
Nepal is home to a vast array of flora and fauna, much of which is threatened due to habitat loss and deforestation. Planting trees helps to preserve and restore ecosystems and protect biodiversity.
Trees absorb carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, helping to mitigate the effects of climate change. Nepal is particularly vulnerable to the impacts of climate change, such as increased frequency and severity of natural disasters like floods, landslides, and droughts. Planting trees helps to reduce these risks.
Many communities in Nepal rely on forests for their livelihoods, whether through gathering fuelwood, collecting non-timber forest products, or practicing agroforestry. By planting trees, Nepal can help to ensure that these communities have access to the resources they need to support themselves.
Nepal is a mountainous country with steep slopes and fragile soils. Trees help to prevent soil erosion by anchoring the soil with their roots and reducing the force of rainfall on the ground.
Trees play a vital role in regulating the water cycle, helping to maintain a steady supply of water for people and wildlife. They also help to filter pollutants and purify water.

For individuals, Tree App allows you to plant a tree for free everyday, via the mobile app. Why not give it a try?
