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.

Time Timer Making Time for Trees Initiative

Our Mission

“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

History of Living Lands and Waters
Headquarters in East Moline, Illinois, Living Lands & Waters was established by Chad Pregracke in 1998, and has grown to be the only “industrial strength” river cleanup organization like it in the world. The Living Lands & Waters crew spends up to nine months a year living and traveling on the barge to run their key conservation efforts!

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.

Student educational workshops

Students in grades 7-12 and college can go aboard the organization’s floating classroom for memorable one-day workshops that help students understand how we can keep our rivers clean, and inspire a new appreciation for rivers.

Educator workshops

The organization also partners with the US Army Corps of Engineers to host free one-day workshops for educators on the Corps’ new curriculum and activities guide, Our Mississippi, in addition to sharing lessons created for workshops in the "Floating Classroom". And while the curriculum is called Our Mississippi, much of the content is also relevant to the entire watershed encompassing the Illinois and Ohio Rivers.

Summer camps and guest speakers

Finally, Living Lands & Waters educators can visit your event or classroom, or even meet campers at summer camps out on the rivers for engaging lessons on keeping our rivers clean and becoming river stewards.

Time Timer Sustainability Team

Time Timer has a team committed to sustainability.  The Time Timer Sustainability Team’s purpose is to look at how Time Timer can lessen negative impacts on our environment and help empower people to respect human rights and support social development.

The Time Timer Sustainability Team meets each month to maintain current initiatives and continue to brainstorm more ways that Time Timer can make a positive impact on the environment, economy, and community.
