How Business Partnerships To Plant Trees Make a Difference to Customers & Our Community
Send everyone a clear message that you care about our local community and the planet, not just profit. Work with us to form an innovative business partnership to plant trees in Whatcom County!
Positive local impacts are the most meaningful to staff and customers.
Team with Whatcom Million Trees Project to boost your bottom-line and reputation. Together we’ll create a well-publicized win-win local tree-planting project customized to your needs that will respond to the growing climate concerns of your customers and staff.
You’ll then be able to feature the tree planting project in your social media, advertisements, and publicity campaigns. And of course we’ll do our part to spread the word widely about you being one of our innovative business partnerships to plant trees.

Below are eight example ways your business can support us in such projects. Or we can help you create a custom approach! Interested? Contact us.
One for One
A simple and great way to get started! Plant one tree for every product or service sold, determined by you. This can be ongoing, for specific sales, or for days such as Arbor Day and Earth Day.
1% For Trees
Similar to One for One, show customers you care by donating 1% of net or gross profits to plant local trees. This can ongoing, during sales, or for days such as Arbor Day and Earth Day.
As customers buy, ask if they’re willing to round their purchase price up to the nearest dollar to donate to us. This can occur for a certain time period or continually.
Offset Your Carbon Impact
Calculate your carbon footprint — company-wide or for certain products/services — then commit to planting enough trees locally to offset that carbon impact.
Plant A Tree Per Employee
Choose to plant a tree, or multiple trees, for each employee. This will empower them by knowing they’re contributing to a better world as they work.
Donations Per Sale
Let your customers know you’ll donate per certain item you sell, or per certain sales thresholds. That will build a periodic tax-deductible lump-sum donation seamlessly.
Sponsor a Tree-Planting Event
Synergize with other local groups to sponsor a tree planting event for a local school or organization. Doing good as a team will likely multiply the benefits and value.
Employee Team-Building Party
Help your employees team up for an upcoming tree-planting party with one of our partners. They’re fun, outdoors, energizing, and have a terrific positive impact!
