Trees provide so many benefits for our environment. They help stabilize watersheds that provide millions of Americans with clean water, they offer a habitat for wildlife and they improve air quality.
The National Forest Foundation (NFF) annually selects areas based on the greatest need due to factors like wildfires and other natural threats.
This year, we’re partnering with the National Forest Foundation to plant trees in Angeles National Forest to help with reforestation after the Sand fire, in Lassen National Forest for reforestation after the Hat Creek fire and in Chippewa National Forest for blowdown reforestation.
In the last three years, we’ve planted trees in Deschutes National Forest to increase climate resiliency, in Custer-Gallatin National Forest to restore damage from Ash Creek fires, in Uinta-Wasatch-Cache National Forest to restore damage caused by spruce beetles and in Stanislaus National Forest to restore damage from the Rim Fire.
The trees planted on each project vary. Only seedlings native to each forest are used for the reforestation projects. Here are the species that have been planted at previous projects: Englemann spruce, lodgepole pine, ponderosa pine, sugar pine, Jeffery pine, white fir, and incense cedar.
Our commitment at Boxed Water is not only to help better our planet by providing a sustainable alternative to plastic water bottles, but to also make a very real impact on bettering the planet for our future. By asking you to help us spread the word about the importance of our planet through posting a picture and using #betterplanet we are supporting both our planet and your voice in bettering our planet for years to come.
Don’t worry – your #Retree posts will still count for tree planting! We think #BetterPlanet describes our goal for our planet more accurately: making our planet healthier and better. Our planet is in need of more than just trees and #BetterPlanet will allow us to add new partners to the impact that all of us at Boxed Water are so passionate about.

Glamping = glamorous + camping. Glamping campsites are decked out with amenities you’d find in most luxury hotels: comfortable couches, tables, running water, and in some cases, Jacuzzis! We will have more details to learn more about our Glamping Sweepstakes this coming April.
