Kauai SUP rental has recently teamed up with trees for the future to help the planet. Trees for the Future is dedicated to improving the livelihoods of impoverished farmers by revitalizing degraded lands. In an effort to help, Kauai SUP has decided to donate to plant 2 trees for every Stand Up Paddle Boarding Kauai Rental and 5 trees for every Purchase of a new SUP. Below is a story of Trees for the future and we encourage you visit their site.
In the early 1970’s, Dave and Grace Deppner served as volunteers in the Philippines, where they witnessed the human tragedy brought on by illegal logging and unsustainable land management systems. Working with community leaders in nearby villages, the Deppners found a way to offer hope. They revitalized lands by providing farmers with tree seeds, technical training and on-site planning assistance.
After returning to the U.S. from their overseas assignments they continued what they had started, communicating by mail with the project leaders and providing seeds, information and training materials. On August 14, 1989, Trees for the Future was incorporated as a public charity. Since then Trees has planted over 115 million trees in dozens of countries and revitalized hundreds of thousands of acres of soil while changing people’s lives forever.
