One Tree Planted x Hilom Artisan Collection
One Tree Planted is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit dedicated to global reforestation. They plant trees to restore nature and biodiversity
They also raise awareness about the importance of trees, offer businesses like ours a simple sustainability solution, and motivate younger generations to do something positive for the
For every Moon Cycle Box sold, we will plant one tree!
Over the last century, the Philippines has suffered a staggering amount of deforestation, from some 70% forest coverage down to just 20% today, largely due to illegal logging activities. The impacts of deforestation have been felt throughout the country, causing food shortages, poor water quality, landslides, and the endangering of wildlife habitat. Since the 1990s the Philippines has promoted reforestation efforts to push back against this loss of forest coverage, conserving wildlife habitats in the last remaining endangered forests, and developing creative solutions with nature and people in mind. This project will focus on carbon draw down by planting fast-growing bamboo.

Planting bamboo in Bukidnon, Mindanao, will aid in restoring water cycles, preventing erosion, and reducing catastrophic flooding in the region. Mindanao has been dramatically deforested in the region and this planting project will restore 750,000 acres of barren land. Furthermore, because of it’s regenerative and fast-growing nature, the bamboo planted will support the local economy and provide jobs to indigenous and impoverished communities. The total planting will be 100,000 bamboos emphasizing carbon draw down from the atmosphere. Botanically not trees but grasses, bamboo can restore landscapes quickly and sequester up to 365 tonnes of carbon per hectare per year. When considering the displacement of more carbon-intensive material production when replaced by bamboo, those benefits increase significantly.
Tree Species :
Dendrocalamus Asper (giant bamboo), with native hardwood interplanting after year 5 (to give time for bamboo fire breaks to reach maturity) have been identified for this project. Giant bamboo has a unique geometric growth curve that makes it 10x faster than tree-based CO2 draw down, and it can sequester up to 1.78 tonnes CO2/clump/year, or up to 356 tonnes/hectare/year when optimally managed. We see an additional 40% benefit as bamboo replaces other building materials over time. Furthermore, bamboo does not die in the grass fires that have devastated previous reforestation attempts in the area with native hardwoods. We only plant clumping bamboo to not compete with native species and plan to increase biodiversity with native forest inter planting in future years.
