One Tree Planted for Every Tree Sold

Whole Foods Market and American Forests

This year, thanks to a partnership between Whole Foods Market and American Forests, for every full-size tree purchased at your local Whole Foods Market, we will make a donation to American Forests, an organization that has been protecting and restoring America’s forests since 1875, to plant new evergreen trees in state and national forests.

American Forests partners with organizations (such as Whole Foods Market) and the U.S. Forest Service to help restore forest ecosystems in all 50 U.S. states and nearly 50 countries around the world.

Working together, more than 50 million trees have been planted since 1990. These trees mean cleaner waterways and air, improved drinking water, reduced soil erosion and more vital habitat for wildlife, to name just a few benefits — not to mention making any area more beautiful.

More Than Just Trees

However, American Forests does more than just plant trees. American Forests’ goal is “to inspire and advance the conservation of forests by protecting and restoring forest ecosystems, promoting and expanding urban forests and advancing the understanding of the importance of forests.”

American Forests also works in and advocates for state and national forests, the greening of urban areas and informs policymakers about the ecological, health and economic benefits of having more trees. 

Here’s How to Help

Buy a Christmas tree at your local Whole Foods Market, and a new tree will be planted. Or help plant more trees by donating to American Forests.
