The Norway Pine (aka Red Pine) is the state tree of Minnesota, where Onesta is based.
In honor of the 40th anniversary of Earth Day, natural haircare company Onesta is planting 5,119 Norway Pines (the number of shampoo bottles sold during a promotion in March). Here's some information about the impact of trees on our lives and our planet:
• One acre of trees produces enough oxygen for 18 people to breathe for a year. One tree produces nearly 260 pounds of oxygen each year.
• The amount of carbon stored annually by an acre of trees is approximately equal to the amount released by burning 1,000 gallons of gasoline!
• Trees harbor wildlife, improve air quality, conserve water, reduce storm runoff, and the possibility of flooding and moderate our climate. Trees absorb ozone, carbon monoxide, and sulfur dioxide and give off oxygen.
• In one year, Onesta’s 5119 trees will reduce atmospheric carbon by over 140,000 pounds!
