We 'Stand for Trees' with Prince EA

We 'Stand for Trees' with Prince EA

“You all know it as the Amazon Desert but years ago it was known as the Amazon Rainforest.” With tears rolling down my cheeks, I was captivated as I heard Prince EA speaking to the future about the “Amazon Desert.”

A friend of mine told me to check out this video from Richard Williams, better known as Prince EA. According to his website, his work includes, “creative, inspirational and thought-provoking content.” I can attest to this. As I sat watching “Dear Future Generations, Sorry,” his words both saddened and inspired me; listening to him made me feel devastated and empowered.

Rainforests fading

What Prince EA was saying is that the abundant rainforests of the world – filled with indigenous tribes, medicine, animals and trees – are fading right before our eyes.

Unfortunately, there are some decision-makers in the corporate world who are choosing to deplete the resources on our planet for temporary personal gain. I realized in that moment that until those people awaken to the destruction they are causing, we must take a stand and not sit idly by. If we care at all about future generations of people and our planet, we must act now.

Stand together, Stand for Trees

That is why we, at Whitney Howard Designs, partnered with Prince EA to take a Stand for Trees. Stand for Trees is an organization that's making a positive impact on the planet by creating a carbon offset by planting trees in the rainforests of the world. In case you are unfamiliar with the term “carbon offset,” it basically means the compensation or “offset” for damage done elsewhere.

For our children, and their children and their children, it is imperative that we act now to help offset this destruction or risk leaving nothing more than an apology to future generations.

As another Earth Day approaches, Prince EA’s words ring especially true: Are we making this planet a better place for future generations?

Support the rainforests with Acai Seeds of Life bracelets 

At Whitney Howard Designs, we have taken steps to ensure we are. You may have even noticed that every Whitney Howard Designs Acai Seeds of Life Bracelet has a little round tag attached that says, "Stand for Trees" to acknowledge our partnership.

When I look down at the bracelets on my arm, I have hope in my heart as I think of future generations. As Prince EA says at the end of his video, “An error doesn’t become a mistake until you refuse to correct it.” If we all do just a little to offset the damage being done, we will hopefully never need to say, “Dear Future Generations, I’m Sorry…”
