We are excited to be a partner of a non-profit organization called Eden Reforestation Projects. To this date we've helped plant 2910 trees in Haiti and provided 232 hours of employment for impoverished people living there. We seriously love these humble, loving people and believe that they are on the right path, so we think it is necessary that they get all the support they need. Check out the video above to learn more about what they do.
We infused our business model with a social-environmental objective and Eden Projects helps us achieve that. For every purchase of Global Citizen we give a portion of the revenue to help Eden Projects employ people in Haiti to seed, plant and protect 4 trees in Haiti. Are you a Global Citizen yet? Our mission is to plant 3 million trees by 2028.
Eden Reforestation Projects employs natives of a deforested country to plant the trees necessary for their survival and future growth of their economy and people. So, it is more than just the global environment that is positively impacted by the planting of trees. The natives of these lands can sustain themselves by gaining meaningful employment that helps them put their children through school and put food on the table.

Every bag of Global Citizen sold will employ an impoverished person in Haiti to plant 4 trees. Haiti has a little over 60% poverty rate. They could use some help.
Nothing more can be said about the importance of our planets trees. From carbon sequestration to biodiversity, we all need the trees. We need our forests back.
No matter who you are or where you come from, if you believe that there is work to be done in order to fix our world... L'Ouverture Coffee was founded for you.
