earth month: the ten tree pledge

For the month of April, Ten Tree will be planting a tree for every pledge made for their Pledge & Plant promotion. Each pledge option targets an object that are plastic and have been designed to be disposed of after a single-use.

You can choose to pledge to one of their four options to reduce your impact:

  1. Cut Out Single-Use Cutlery: Cut out plastic cutlery for the next 30 days
  2. Straws Suck: Cut out plastic straws for the next 30 days
  3. Toteally Sustainable: Cut out plastic bags for the next 30 days
  4. Refill to Shrink the Landfill: cut out disposable coffee cups for the next 30 day

There is no monetary commitment, all that is required is an email address to participate.

I strongly encourage you to take a moment to consider which pledge would best fit your lifestyle and make the biggest different in the amount of waste you produce.
You can Pledge & Plant here.


As of Monday, April 2nd at 2:30pm: 2467 pledges had been made to support the cause.
