Stopthejunkmail.com has created a partnership with American Forests. We donate $1.00 of your proceeds to
them and they, in turn, use those proceeds to plant one tree
in North America. Each tree is between 1-6 feet tall, depending
on the area in which it is planted.
AMERICAN FORESTS is
the nation's oldest nonprofit citizen conservation organization, founded
in 1875 by citizens concerned about waste and abuse of the nation's
forests. Their mission today remains helping people improve the environment
with trees and forests. They work to ensure a sustainable future for
our nation's forests - both urban and rural - through national and
international tree planting, forest policy, urban forestry, and popular
programs, such as The National Register of Big Trees and Famous & Historic
Trees. Their work is made possible by generous contributions from concerned
individuals, corporations and other funders.
Through their Global ReLeaf program, they have planted more than 15 million
trees in 500+ forest ecosystem restoration projects and urban and community
forest projects. Most of their projects are in Global ReLeaf Forests, where
they plant the right species in the right places to reforest damaged public
lands. The first Global ReLeaf Forest was Michigan's AuSable State Forest where
they planted jack pine to protect the endangered Kirtland's warbler. Your StopThejunkMail.com
membership will help American Forests reach their goal of planting 20 million
trees for the new millennium.
There are two types of Global ReLeaf projects:
1) In urban areas, trees are planted through the Global ReLeaf Fund. The program
also encourages individuals to plant trees around their homes and businesses
or join community groups to plant trees that shade, cool, and beautify their
2) In less-developed areas, trees are planted in ecosystem restoration
projects called Global ReLeaf Forests. Many of these areas have been
damaged by natural or human causes. These trees help clean the air
and water, filter polluted runoff, slow global warming and erosion,
and provide habitat for wildlife.
