We are planting trees to save our planet

What is compassion? The English Dictionary defines compassion as "a strong feeling of sympathy and sadness for the suffering or bad luck of others and a wish to help them".  We have unwittingly ruined our beautiful planet and have unknowingly created our own suffering as a result of this.

Trees, or the lack of trees today, are paramount.  We are supporting an amazing organisation called Live to Love which work tirelessly to rebuild our communities, strenghten our inner resolve, and rebuild our planet.  Planting Trees in Ladakh saves lives by preventing and slowing down mudslides and avalanches, it slows global climate change, it protects water quality by capturing rainfall, it improves air quality for the world, it serves as a habitat for wildlife and it raises awareness of global climate change in the most fragile region on earth.

Live to Love was founded by His Holiness the Gyalwang Drukpa who has inspired millions around the world. His Holiness is an environmentalist, educator, advocate of cultural preservation, champion of women and the head of the Drukpa Lineage. In 2010 His Holiness was awarded the United Nations Millennium Development Goals Honor and He sits on the Earth Awards Selection committee with Jane Goodall and Richard Branson.

We are proud to announce that we are buying trees trees to support this project. The Live to Love tree planting event involves thousands of people across the globe who have joined together to help save our beautiful planet.  In our own words as a company "This is an honor to be part of something so tremendous, we take our planet for granted and have unknowingly wreaked havoc on our ecosystems, we are hoping that we can raise awareness for this project and be hugely beneficial to the Live to Love organisation”.

Anyone can get involved in this project.  It takes just a little thought and a little action.  Trees can be purchased directly from Live2love.org and start from only $20.00.  Ladakh is the largest store of glaciers and permafrost outside of the polar ice caps and has been coined the “Third Pole” of planet Earth. Not only does is play a large role in our global ecosystem but it provides fresh water to nearly half of the world's population.
