As the new year began, Milestone Systems, a leading global video management software company, made the important decision to actively support the Amazon Rainforest. This was facilitated through the One Tree Planted organization who will plant 2,200 trees sponsored by Milestone.
One Tree Planted is a non-profit concern with a focus on global reforestation. Since its founding in 2014 the organization has doubled the number of trees planted each year. As an environmental charity, they are dedicated to making it easier for individuals and businesses to give back to the environment, create a healthier climate, protect biodiversity and help reforestation efforts around the world – all of this accomplished by planting trees.
Trees help clean the air we breathe, filter the water we drink, and provide habitat to over 80% of the world’s terrestrial biodiversity. They also absorb harmful carbon from the atmosphere and are key ingredients in 25% of all medicines.
Every dollar donated helps to plant one tree. In 2018, they managed to plant 1.3 million trees in their supported areas. Milestone Systems – whose company purpose is to Make the World See – is proud to contribute to this impressive number.
At present, One Tree Planted collaborates with reforestation partners in North and South America, Asia and Africa, who help the organization to get trees in the ground to restore forests after fires and floods. This work also creates jobs, builds communities, and protects habitats.
The organization is built on a network of individuals, businesses, and schools who either donate financially or volunteer their time and supply resources to help plant trees around the world. Together, they join the mission of this charity to make it simple for anyone to help the world’s environment by planting trees.
