Trees for a change

$ 27.00 


You love the idea of giving someone the gift of a living tree for their birthday, Mother's Day, Father's Day, Christmas or another occasion, but you'd also like to give them something that they can enjoy now. Sounds like a green gift giving conundrum, but it doesn't have to be! Trees for a Change has teamed up with Joy's Teaspoon to create a gift package that provides some immediate sipping satisfaction and the long-lasting gift of a tree donation--our Tea & Tree Package.


With the Tea & Tree Package, your friend or family member will get a $15 gift certificate to spend at Joy's Teaspoon, an online store with delicious varieties of loose leaf teas. Like Trees for a Change, Joy's Teaspoon is committed to protecting the planet and is a Green Office Certified company with a Green Hosted certified website. You can feel good about giving your loved one a gift certificate from this eco-conscious company, and you can be certain they'll be thrilled with the delightful teas they sell.


The Tea & Tree Package also includes a Trees for a Change tree donation. The price of the package will pay to have one tree planted in a U.S. National Forest in an area that has been ravaged by wildfires. Your loved one will be able to go online and see the actual tree planted in his or her honor and will get the geographic coordinates, so that they can take a trip to visit the tree if they desire. Your loved one's name and the month in which you purchased the tree will also be added to our Tree Gift Registry for posterity.


When you purchase the Tea & Tree Package, the recipient of your green gift will receive a card that fully explains how the tree gift works. The card has our Trees for a Change logo on the front, and you use the box at the left to enter a personal message that we'll print right on the card along with the explanation of how the tree gift works. The added personalization lets you express your well wishes to the recipient of your gift and honor the special occasion. The gift card will accompany the personalized tree card and includes the website address, so your loved one can buy his or her tea right away.


When you purchase the Tea & Tree Package, we'll get everything ready and then ship it to your loved one via First Class Mail through the U.S. Postal Service free of charge. If you need to have your gift rushed, you can pay a small additional charge for Priority Shipping, which takes just 2 to 3 days to arrive.


So, why choose between a gift that benefits the planet and one that your friend or family member can enjoy now? With the Tea & Tree Package, you get the ultimate green gift for a great low price! Order one for that special occasion now and make a birthday, Christmas or another special occasion a little tastier and greener.
