Mokugift created the 1,000 Ways To Plant A Tree campaign to enable innovative companies, like Fountain Blue, to invent news ways to plant a real tree as a gift for customers at $1 apiece. The goal is to plant 100,000 trees by July 29th 2010. These trees will absorb an average of 5 million pounds of carbon dioxide per year. “When people band together in community, like they did at FountainBlue, it makes a difference. For example, 476 trees will absorb an average total of 23,800 lbs of carbon per year,” comments MokuGift co-founder Krates Ng.
Mokugift trees are planted by farmers practicing environmentally sustainable forestry and agricultural methods in tropical zones in Central America, Africa and Asia. The plantings not only restock, with native trees, existing forests that have been depleted, but also contribute to more diverse, productive and economically sustainable land-use systems. Business can join the 1,000 Ways To Plant A Tree campaign today at Mokugift. Individuals can become fans of Mokugift on facebook to get updates on the newest ways to plant a tree.

About UNEP’s Billion Tree Campaign
Launched in November 2006 by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), with the objective of encouraging the planting of at least one billion trees worldwide each year, “Plant for the Planet: The Billion Tree Campaign” is now recognized as one of the UN’s most successful environmental campaigns. To date, UNEP has tracked the planting of more than three billion trees in 166 countries. Now in its second stage, the campaign, which stresses the power of partnerships, has set a new goal of seven billion trees planted —roughly one tree for every living person on the planet. Every tree counts, and UNEP counts every tree.
