Lively Root + The Arbor Day Foundation

The Lively Root mission centers on creating more green spaces throughout our planet. We are committed to carrying out this mission through our plants, our sustainable products, and by inspiring green thumbs around the country. It is our belief that every plant is another step forward towards a better future.

To further our mission, we have partnered  with the Arbor Day Foundation, which shares our vision for a vibrant and healthy tomorrow. With every plant purchased from us, you’re helping grow more trees and making the world a little greener. 

The Arbor Day Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to planting trees in ecosystems that need it most. Through their efforts, they hope to show how trees can help solve many of the critical issues in the world, like climate change, air and water quality, poverty, hunger, and the destruction of habitats through deforestation.

Our Efforts

We are proud to donate a portion of our proceeds to the Arbor Day Foundation's global reforestation efforts. Whether you’re adding a plant to your personal collection, gifting a plant, or choosing to make a donation, our partnership with the Arbor Day Foundation makes it easy for you to become involved in this vital cause. 

By making your life a little greener, you can help restore and protect crucial global ecosystems. Your support goes toward our contribution goals that will help plant trees, restore watersheds, and maintain the habitats of endangered species. 

The Arbor Day Foundation also provides educational partnerships and programs to help bring their mission everywhere from rain forests to your local neighborhood. We believe that education is one of the most important steps to getting people passionate about a greener planet, something mirrored in The Arbor Day Foundation’s Urban initiatives and academic projects. Through conservation strategies and grassroots organizations, this foundation works to improve our cities as well as our forests.

Growing Forward

Our experiences inspire us every day. Through conversations with you, it’s clear that having a positive impact on the environment is just as important to our customers as it is to us. That’s why we’re excited to expand our collaboration with the Arbor Day Foundation even further.

Over the next several months, we will be launching our “Picks for a Purpose” campaign. During this time, every plant purchased on our site will be matched with one tree planted to help the Arbor Day Foundation reach their goal of planting 100 million trees in communities and ecosystems around the globe by 2022, the 150th anniversary of Arbor Day. 

Plants give so much to us already, and we are honored to have you help us return the favor. Through inspiring people, supporting communities, and rehabilitating forests, the Arbor Day Foundation hopes to combat the alarming crisis that we are facing globally. The Time for Trees initiative hopes to do something before it is too late. To learn more about this Arbor Day Foundation initiative, visit their website at A Time for Trees
