“Between every two pines is a doorway to a new world.”
― John Muir
You guys…MCP was accepted as a partner for One Tree Planted. Excited is a total understatement. One Tree Planted is a 501c3 non-profit based in Shelburne Vermont. Their mission is to plant trees across the world and we have the opportunity to help!
I am sure most of you know all the beauty that trees bring and how incredibly important they are. Driving through Central Florida it is not hard to see…Each and everyday a new subdivision or shopping plaza is taking the place where a forest once stood. The beautiful way those trees filter light (hello photo shoots ;)) and just the peace you can feel sitting under a tree on a lovely day….those trees are disappearing. This is something that has always been important to me and I am just so happy to have found an organization with this mission.
“Trees help clean the AIR we breath, clean the WATER we drink, help with BIODIVERSITY loss, helps sequester CARBON from the atmosphere, help provide SOCIAL IMPACT, and provide HEALTH in so many ways.” ~ One Tree Planted.org
Did you know that 1 in 4 medicines are derived from plants and tress? Because I didn’t. Or that every two seconds 1 football tree worth of forest is cut down? Every two seconds! Or that the average US citizen uses 700 pounds of paper products each year. There are a million and one other ways that we can help and I vow to do my best at home to cut down my carbon footprint but what a beautiful mission to be able to add to our environment and the beauty of our everyday by planting trees! Every session that I shoot will be contributing to this cause by planting trees. Every single session. I look forward to keeping you updated with their missions and I hope that one day they make it down to Orlando and we can all get our hands dirty and help plant those trees!
PS You can help too! Anyone can donate to this incredible cause and together we can help make a difference!
