(Every man should) plant a tree, have a child, and write a book.
Even when it's not 100% clear who wrote that quote, the truth is we humans have the need to be part of something bigger than ourselves to ensure a legacy and achieve a certain degree of immortality.
I would say that everyone needs to be photographed, plant many trees and write, at least, a book (or a blog).
For that reason, I am thrilled to announce that Odette Photo+Art has partnered with One Tree Planted/@onetreeplanted to plant a tree for every portrait sold.
What does this mean?
I care deeply about the planet and creating a business that gives back to nature and our environment and I want you to know that, when you buy a portrait from Odette Photo+Art, you make a difference.
When you choose Odette Photo+Art to photograph you, we will create heirlooms that will outlive you and ensure that future generations will remember your legacy... and together, we will give back to nature by getting trees planted.
Even better, when you purchase your family portraits, or headshots, or your personal branding images, you get to choose where you want your trees to be planted:
- North America (United States, Canada, and Mexico)
- Latin America (Amazon Rainforest, Andes, Brazil, Colombia, Costa Rica, Honduras, Peru)
- Africa (Plant trees for Chimpanzees, Cote d'Ivoire, Ethiopia, Rwanda, Uganda, Ghana, Kenya, Malawi, Tanzania)
- Asia (India, Indonesia, Mangroves, Philippines, Vietnam)
- Europe (Denmark, Iceland, Romania, and Spain
- The Pacific (Australia and New Zealand)
Planting trees in each of these regions comes with its own diverse benefits, challenges, and rewards. And every reforestation project has its own unique impact on forests, communities, animals, and the planet overall.
Why donating to planting trees as a passion project?
Trees are essential to the health of our planet, biodiversity, and reducing the harmful effects of climate change. Reforestation is consistently identified by scientists as one of the top solutions to the climate crisis and the trees planted as part of this initiative will support the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.
Why One Tree Planted?
One Tree Planted is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit dedicated to global reforestation.
They plant trees to restore nature and biodiversity. They also raise awareness about the importance of trees, offer businesses like Odette Photo+Art a simple sustainability solution, and motivate younger generations to do something positive for the environment.
