You Book a Space. We Plant a Tree.
Sustainability, one tree at a time
Much of the world’s farming techniques are unsustainable, and our food systems kill trees at a rate of 50 soccer fields per minute. The worst victims of this are in developing tropic areas of Africa, Latin America, and South and Southeast Asia. There, millions of families practice unsustainable farming practices that perpetuate hunger, poverty, and deforestation.
Trees for the Future fights this problem with the Forest Garden Program, a process of planting specific types of fast-growing trees and food crops in a structured manner over a four year period. Forest Gardens consist of thousands of trees that provide families with sustainable food sources year-round, and increases their annual income.
One Booking = One Tree
Sustainability is important to us here at Upflex. We work every day to make the world more sustainable, and now we’re taking the next step by partnering with Trees for the Future.
With our One Booking = One Tree program, every time you make a booking on the Upflex app, you’re also planting a tree. And so far, Upflex has planted over 10K trees!
With your help we’ve planted over 10,000 trees
By helping us plant trees, you give families the ability to transition from unsustainable farming techniques to a Forest Garden system. Every booking you make not only sustains and empowers families, but also changes their lives forever.
1 million trees by 2022
It’s a high number, we know, but with your help we can do it. For families in need, 1 million trees would create food and economic security for 169 families and help end unsustainable farming practices.
On a global scale, 1,000,000 trees planted would sequester approximately 1,243 tons of carbon dioxide, deferring global warming and helping to avoid serious climate change.
We can do it, but we need your help.
