The eco-inspired Tea Tree brand has long supported healthy forests. Today JPMS is proudly supporting Reforest’Action to plant Maya Nut trees in San Martin Province, Peru and Sayaxche, in Peten Department, Guatemala.

Located in the upper part of the Peruvian Amazon rainforest, San Martin Province is being deforested due to logging, mining, agriculture and an influx of settlers. The woodlands in Sayaxche are being cut down for large-scale agriculture, oil exploration and mining. While tropical forests like these only take up 6% of the world’s surface, they house an enormous volume of plant and animal life—approximately one half to three-quarters.

Tea Tree The Green Takeover has made a commitment to:

- Reach a total number of 500,000 trees planted by the end of 2016 (since Tea Tree’s inception)

- Sequester more than 85,000 tons of CO2 during the trees’ lifetime

- Benefit local communities through better health and nutrition, as well as additional revenue

- Protect soil from depletion and erosion caused by deforestation
