INVEST IN NATURE
For every photograph purchased on this site, or in the Bellingham, WA gallery, Peter James makes a donation that plants between 100 and 1,000 trees. These trees are planted by Trees for the Future, who work with farmers in Africa using permaculture techniques to transform desert-like land into abundant forest gardens.
Peter James also co-founded the Trillion Trees Campaign, together with his wife iMa. The purpose of this campaign is to address global air pollution, which is the cause of climate change, through large scale tree planting and reforestation.
As trees grow, they pull carbon dioxide and dozens of other air pollutants out of the atmosphere, breaking them down and safely storing them in their wood and in the soil. Planting one trillion trees would offset 100% of the worlds annual carbon emissions, and any trees beyond that would begin drawing down the excess carbon that remains in the atmosphere from the past. This approach has the best chance of being effective as it does not rely on governments or industries changing, but rather it can be funded by millions of individuals who care about the future making small monthly donations. Since several of the tree planting non-profits plant for only 10 cents a tree, monthly donations as little as $3 can plant a tree every day of the year.
Join Peter in this mission to support forest restoration work around the world by getting involved with the Trillion Trees Campaign, or by investing in you nature photograph today!
