We are happy to announce that we have partnered with One Tree Planted to plant trees! Creating no-wood furniture and protecting the natural environment is not just a brand philosophy of Psilvam, by partnering with One Tree Planted and donating to the non-profit organization's reforestation program, Psilvam is doing just that! For every product sold Psilvam will plant 1 tree.
Trees clean our air and water, create habitat for biodiversity, contribute to our health and well-being, and create jobs for social impact. We are honored to include supporting reforestation through One Tree Planted as an integral part of our business model.

One Tree Planted is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit on a mission to make it simple for anyone to help the environment by planting trees. Their projects span the globe and are done in partnership with local communities and knowledgeable experts to create an impact for nature, people, and wildlife.

Nine benefits of reforestation

- Removes air pollutants by absorbing them into their leaves and bark
- Prevents soil erosion by growing roots that hold the soil together
- Provides habitatfor over 80% of the world’s terrestrial biodiversity
- Acts as natural air conditionersby reducing ambient air temperatures by up to 8° Celsius
- Reduces the impact of global warming and climate change
- Helps to protect endangered species
- Filters our drinking water through their roots
- Prevents floods and landslides by absorbing water and slowly releasing it via transpiration
