Plant with Purpose
This year, Plant With Purpose and EarthX partnered on tree planting initiatives in Burundi and the DR Congo. Plant With Purpose was able to connect with environmental leaders and concerned citizens at this year’s event to raise money for their reforestation efforts in foreign countries around the world.
Coming for the second year in a row, Plant With Purpose was able to collect thousands of $1 tree donations this year at Fair Park to plant 16,874 trees! To add, EarthX pledged a tree for every gala ticket sold and school field trip completed. Plant With Purpose was also able to raise money to finance sustainable agriculture training for farmers in developing nations.
Executive Director Scott Sabin spoke with Reed Sternberg in an EarthxInterview to further explain their efforts and joined Dr. Gerald Durley on a Green Speaker Series panel to discuss the interrelations of Faith and Environmental Stewardship.
