Trees for Life: Planting Peace
Planting 15,000 olive trees in
Palestine by early 2006
Zatoun is pleased to announce the "Trees for Life" project.
Yes - it is possible - an amazing 15,000 new olive trees in Palestine
in early 2006.
Zatoun AND YOU are now able to "plant peace in Palestine"
and help build for the future, not just help farmers today.
In the works for almost a year, Zatoun has created its own program
"Trees for Life" with the help of our primary partner,
Palestine Fair Trade
Association. The program has set an ambitious goal to
plant 15,000 trees in 375 farms distributed over 25 agricultural
areas across Palestine. Farmers are selected according to damage
suffered. Zatoun in Canada will contribute over $7,500 CDN to the
program just from the sale of Zatoun olive oil. The program is being
rolled out to Fair Trade olive oil initiatives in Europe. Please
follow the link for a more complete description of the program.
There are 2 ways you can contribute directly to the program:
- buy Zatoun and $1.00 from each bottle goes directly to "Trees
- make a direct contribution and the entire amount benefits "Trees
Or do BOTH. Zatoun does what it can through olive oil sales but
direct contributions are much needed.
Zatoun will send out formal receipts to acknowledge direct contributions/donations.
We at Zatoun are grateful for your incredible support and hope with
your help to keep bringing hope to the farmers of Palestine AND
to ourselves. We, as donors and buyers, need help.
Please visit our site to place your order for Zatoun olive oil.
We apologize that we have been sold out of olive oil soap practically
from the beginning - it was a small test and "Zatoun is enthusiasm
for and goodwill towards Palestine in a bottle."
