Environmental Responsibility: Our Commitment to One Tree Planted
July 09, 2021 | Social Impact
We are committed to taking care of our people and our planet.
There is a delicate balance in our world today. At Colour Republic, we have a true commitment to social and environmental responsibility, and strengthening the communities in which we live and work—to making a real change in our world, leaving it a better place with EVERYTHING we do.
Sustainable growing practices are important to our flower farming process and we are committed to protecting our environment—keeping our planet balanced every step of the way.
That's why we are so proud to share our partnership with One Tree Planted—It's easy to donate one dollar, one tree for global reforestation efforts.
One Tree Planted is a non-profit organization that reflects Colour Republic’s values of social and environmental responsibility as well as its commitment to helping the community. They are on a mission to reforest our planet and provide education, awareness and engagement on the importance of trees to our environment.
We're helping to plant trees with our customer alliances across the nation — over 315,000 trees have been planted so far — and YOUR purchase of select flower bouquets help make this possible. Our goal is to reduce our carbon footprint, and we created the "one bouquet, one tree planted" project.
You can join this great program by allowing us to create a One Tree Planted custom bouquet collection for you, complete with marketing materials.

Why do we help plant trees?
AIR: Trees help to clean the air we breathe. Through their leaves and bark, they absorb harmful pollutants and release clean oxygen for us to breathe.
WATER: Trees play a key role in capturing rainwater and reducing the risk of natural disasters like floods and landslides.
BIODIVERSITY: A single tree can be home to hundreds of species of insect, fungi, moss, mammals and plants. Without trees, forest creatures would have nowhere to call home.
SOCIAL IMPACT: From arborists to loggers and researchers, job opportunities provided by forestry are endless. And sustainable tree farming provides timber to build homes and shelters, and wood to burn for cooking and heating.
HEALTH: Did you know that hospital patients with rooms overlooking trees recover faster than those without the same view? Trees help reduce stress and anxiety, and allow us to reconnect with nature.
CLIMATE: Trees help cool the planet by sucking in and storing harmful greenhouse gas like carbon dioxide—and releasing oxygen back into our atmosphere.
