Making Time for Trees Initiative
Time Timer is committed to lessening our carbon footprint. We work hard internally to make small changes that will continue to improve our environment.
Time Timer has partnered with the organization Living Lands & Waters to launch the Time Timer Making Time For Trees Initiative. Now, for every purchase made on Time Timer’s website, we are donating one tree to be planted.
“The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now.” – Chinese proverb
The mission of the Time Timer Making Time for Trees Initiative is to support and replenish the environment so that future generations can learn and benefit from our natural world. We encourage everyone to join us in investing time and resources into the education and wellbeing of their communities through the act of planting trees.
History of Living Lands and Waters
In addition to protecting, preserving, and restoring the natural environment of major rivers and their watersheds in the U.S., the organization is also committed to expanding awareness of environmental issues and responsibility encompassing rivers, and creating a desire and opportunity for citizens to take an active role in helping to make a cleaner river environment.
Living Lands & Waters has had an incredible impact, removing over 12 million pounds of garbage from U.S. rivers, with the help of over 125,000 volunteers and countless supporters. The organization has also offered educational workshops to over 11,000 students and planted over 1,780,000 trees.
Living Lands and Waters MillionTrees Project
Living Lands & Waters aims to not only clean up the riverways but also enhance the watershed by planting native trees and removing invasive plants. In 2007, the organization started collecting and planting acorns with the goal of growing one million trees. They reached that goal in 2016 and now they’re aiming for another million! The organization also maintains a tree nursery in Davenport, IA where trees are harvested after 2-3 seasons and new acorns are planted each fall.
Living Lands & Waters Education
Living Lands & Waters hosts many educational opportunities throughout the year, including student educational workshops, educator workshops, and summer camps.
