Over 200 billion roses are purchased each year for Valentines Day alone, with a lifespan of 4 days.

With 6 billion people on earth and only 3 trillion trees this means we have 500 trees per person. Not even close to the 1,102 trees needed per person to offset their carbon each year.


Let’s raise awareness and show our loved ones that we really care about them this Valentines Day!


We provide financial and operational support to vetted local partners.


We pride ourselves on working with partners delivering impact on long-term, sustainable projects.


We aim to equip students with knowledge and skills so that they can become conscious, engaged global citizens.
