2.) give a child somewhere in the world a local and indigenous tree of their own plus a chance to learn about the importance of trees

3.) offer you kids a chance to learn about sustainability to make sure there are trees for other children in the years to come

4.) personalize your certificate and give it to anyone who has helped you or someone you love grow. For example as a thank you gift to your child's teacher or your colleague.

5.) print the optional complimentary printable tree ornament to hang from your tree to tell your family that you have Greened your tree.

6.) post the optional Green your Tree badge on your social media sites, emails and Christmas cards.

Wouldn't it be amazing if an idea like this really took off. It would mean that more and more children around the world would get a tree of their own to plant and watch grow - a true Christmas story of love. Plus children in homes of trees Greened by Love Trees could look at their Christmas tree and feel good that another tree has been planted in honour of their tree.
