Plant Trees and Fight Climate Change with Wild Kind Photography
See why I'm planting trees with every Refresh your Brand package booked.
Exhale all the air from your lungs.
You’d be surprised how much stale air is in there.
Now, once you can’t let anymore out, take a GIANT deep breath in. Really fill up all corners of your chest. And with a satisfying exhale, give thanks to all the gorgeous trees that provided that beautiful oxygen to you. Did you think this was the beginning of a yoga post for a minute?
That’s all good and fun too but we’re here to talk about TREES real quick. It's crazy easy to take our oxygen for granted. It's all coughs and complaints when it's polluted but do you ever take a moment to be grateful when you get a taste of that fresh, clean air?
I am a LOVER of forests. I’m from the Evergreen State, after all - the only state with a green flag! Trees, forests, foliage – they’ve always been home for me. When in the woods I can breathe deeper, think clearer, run farther. I get a state of calm and peace from forests that I just can’t find in any other environment. I feel sheltered and protected under a canopy of conifers.
I grew up across the street from a small forest, and on windy nights, I’d drift asleep to the sounds of the trunks creaking and squeaky in subtle protest. I remember little from my first very house, but I see that gorgeous birch tree in the backyard when I close my eyes.
In the last few years, the west coast of the US – my home – has repeatedly been plagued with summer wildfires, decimating forests, destroying homes, and damaging the air quality of my friends and family. (The photo on the left depicts active wildfires in my home state of Washington in September 2020.)
So when I was brainstorming ways to give back, I decided that one of the greatest ways to help not only the planet, but also as many of her lovely creatures as possible, would be to fund reforestation to help fight climate change.
I found a local UK-based company called Ecologi and with every Refresh your Brand package that clients book, I fund the planting of 25 trees in their name. It feels so good to know that I’m helping the environment, as well as helping grow forests for other people to enjoy. While the reforestation project is in another part of the world, I’m thrilled to be part of the solution.
