After careful research, Hammockable has partnered with Trees for the Future to plant 5 trees for every product that we sell. We've always wanted to have a charitable aspect to our business and our partnership with Trees for the Future
allows us to create a positive impact in the world. Trees for the Future has used tree planting through their Forest Garden Program to change lives in developing regions and we're proud to be a part of it.
The Forest Garden Program is a simple, replicable and scalable approach with proven success. By planting specific types of trees and crops in a systematic manner over a four year period, families can change their lives forever. Forest Gardens provide families with sustainable food sources, livestock feed, products to sell, fuel wood and up to a 500% increase in their annual income.
Farmers learn to plan for their family’s future by discovering how planting 4,000 trees with food crops will help them make more money, grow more food and build a sustainable future.
Farmers learn to plant rows of nitrogen fixing trees in and along borders of their degraded land to protect the field from pests and stop erosion.
Farmers learn to plant over 12 types of fruit trees and vegetables to meet market opportunities and the nutritional needs of their families.
Forest Gardens give families: Significant increases in income, more paydays, more nutritious food to eat, security from risks related to markets, pests, and weather extremes, free alternatives to pesticides and fertilizers, feed for livestock, and fuel wood to cook.
