Our Partnership with One Tree Planted

Hammermill® paper has always cared about the communities where we live and work. But this year, by teaming up with One Tree Planted, we’re also supporting the worldwide community.



What is One Tree Planted?

One Tree Planted is a non-profit focused on global reforestation. In 2021 alone, they planted more than 23 million trees, through 166 projects, in 42 countries around the world. In fact, they’re on their way to planting 25 million more in 2022.

Because Hammermill paper understands and supports the importance of reforestation, we’d be hard pressed to find a more appropriate environmental partner. And here’s the amazing part: One Tree Planted can plant a tree for each dollar donated. That means our own 2022 donation of $50,000 translates into 50,000 new trees planted. Talk about an amazing return on our investment in nature.

Join us in Planting More Trees

At Hammermill paper, we fully understand the critical role that trees play in the health of our planet. It’s the reason we source all of our paper from sustainably managed working forests. It’s also the reason we support, and promote, the mission of One Tree Planted. Their global reforestation efforts truly do benefit all of us. Together, we can help restore forests, create habitat for biodiversity, and make a positive social impact around the world.


The Importance of Reforestation

The following forest facts illustrate why planting trees can make such a big difference. The world’s forests absorb an estimated 15 billion tons of CO2 per year. And did you know that 20% of all greenhouse gas emissions are the result of deforestation? Trees also play a key role in capturing rainwater and reducing the risk of natural disasters. A single mature evergreen tree can intercept more than 15,000 liters of water each year.

While rebuilding forests after natural disasters and deforestation is not easy, One Tree Planted is on a mission to make it simple for anyone to make an impact by planting trees. This doesn’t just benefit nature and the climate, it directly impacts the people who live in the affected areas.
