The sustainable agriculture non-profit Trees for the Future has announced that they’ve planted more than 200 million trees around the world. Tens of thousands of farmers planted the trees on their own land over the last three decades in conjunction with Trees’ agroforestry training. The milestone was met with support from thousands of individual donors and more than 300 brand partners, including Eco Eyewear. “We are ecstatic to reach this milestone,” said Tree Executive Director John Leary. “It’s a memorable step in our mission to create a more sustainable food system while planting trees. We could not have done this without the hard work and determination of the farmers we serve, the talent and dedication of our global staff, and the unending generosity of our partners and supporters like Eco.” Trees for the Future is a non-profit organization that is ending poverty and improving the environment by teaching farmers how to grow food more sustainably. Trees will celebrate its 32nd anniversary this year and is expanding into more countries in the coming months.
