A tree is planted for every Operativ® product purchased.

We rely on our forests for providing abundant supplies of clean water. Our forests clean our air and fight climate change. They provide habitat for threatened and endangered wildlife. Natural disasters such as wildfire and insect and disease outbreaks have deforested millions of acres our forests. Currently more than 1 million acres are in need of reforestation in the US alone. Each product purchase from Operativ® contributes toward the reforestation of these vital areas. We are proud to support the National Forest Foundation.

Additionally, we proudly support the Rainforest Trust to purchase & protect 1 acre of tropical rainforest, for every Operativ® product sold.

Healthy tropical ecosystems are imperative to maintaining our planet. Rainforests give us clean air to breathe, a stable climate, plants that produce medicine, and are home to thousands of animals and people that depend on their protection for survival. Every product purchase from Operativ® contributes toward the protection of these endangered areas.
