This is the question that should guide us in all our behaviours. The answer is simple: Nature. We must respect it and help others in any case. Easy right? During our life, we forget the importance of these two behaviours.

Who keeps us alive?
Therefore, we are here to remember us we must do it today, tomorrow and forever. There will be always problems in the world but we are part of it and we can change something if we start to do it today.
The Picart Charity Program
We have partnered with Trees for the Future to help combat climate and deforestation. Trees are the lungs of our planet, and we should help them to breathe.
Our partnership with Trees for the Future allows us to start taking action by planting trees. So, with every order placed with us, we’ll give huge help to combat climate change.
For every order received, we’ll ensure to dedicate the 3% of the costs to plant trees. But it’s not just about planting trees. In addition, this will create jobs for tree farmers too, in places where jobs are scarce.
Work with Farmers
Our charity program not only provides trees. We’ll provide the training, materials and mentorship too. As a result, we’ll help farming families nurture the fruits of their labour.
The most recent research has found that the Forest Garden programs end hunger for the majority of the farming families that take part. After 12 months of planting Forest Gardens, they found that 86% of farmers are food secure – compared to 13% when they joined the program.
Type of Trees
- Fast Growing Trees such as Acacia, Sesbania and Cassia are planted to produce fertilizer, fuel wood and animal fodder.
- Fruit & Nut Trees such as Cashew, Avocado, Citrus and Mangos are grown as they provide food for the families to both eat and sell.
- Timber Trees such as Mahogany, Oak and Cedar are considered to be longer term investments due to the time needed for the trees to grow.
Success is guaranteed
The team at Trees for the Future have developed a meticulous monitoring system. They observe the number of trees planted, by whom and where they are and collect data. In this way, their team can manage and track the successes and problems and help can be provided.
