How it works
Every time you make a purchase we plant a tree, because at Karyng we Care about the earth.
Loss of forests contributes between 12 percent and 17 percent of annual global greenhouse gas emissions. It costs as little as $0.11 to provide support and care for a tree to be planted.
Today is Global Climate Day. At Grossman Dermatology and KARYNG, we strive to implement sustainable practices wherever we can. Whether its reef-safe ingredients and plant-based packaging for our skincare or LED lights in our office , we believe in doing our part to reduce our carbon footprint. We are so proud to announce our new initiative, KarynG Cares. Moving Forward, Grossman Dermatology will be donating a portion of proceeds from each vial of filler injected to KarynG which will plant a tree in
TREES AND PLANTS ARE ICING BURNED, DEGRADED AND LOGGED AT ASTONISHING RATES
80% of the world’s forests are already destroyed
DEFORESTATION COMES IN MANY FORMS, INCLUDING FIRES, CLEAR CUTTING FOR AGRICULTURE, RANCHING AND DEVELOPMENT, UNSUSTAINABLE LOGGING FOR TIMBER, AND DEGRADATION DUE TO CLIMATE CHANGE.
ONLY 20%of forests are properly protected
TREES PLAY AN IMPORTANT ROLE IN THE WATER CYCLE, GROUNDING THE WATER IN THEIR ROOTS AND RELEASING IT INTO THE ATMOSPHERE. IN THE AMAZON, MORE THEN HALF THE WATER IN THE ECOSYSTEM IS HELD WITHIN THE PLANTS. WITHOUT TREES AND PLANTS, THE CLIMATE MAY BECOME DRYER.
70% of the worlds plants and animals live in forests and are losing their habitats to deforestation.
Loss of habitat can lead to species extinction. This is not only a biodiversity tragedy but also has negative consequences for medicinal research and local populations who rely on the animals and plants in the forests for hunting and medicine.
46-58 THOUSAND square miles of forest are lost every year. Thats equivalent to 36 football fields every minute
THE UNITED STATES has less then 5% of the worlds population yet consumes more than 30% of the worlds paper.
THE WORLDS RAINFORESTS COULD COMPLETELY VANISH IN A HUNDRED YEARS AT THE CURRENT RATE OF DEFORESTATION.
50% of all plant and animal species in the world live in tropical rainforests
EVERY 2 SECONDS man destroys an area of forest the size of a football field
if forests are destroyed through logging or burning, their carbon is released into the atmosphere as carbon dioxide, a climate-changing greenhouse gas.
80,000 ACRES of forests disappear from the earth every day!
THE REMOVAL OF TREES WITHOUT SUFFICIENT REFORESTATION HAS HAD ADVERSE IMPACTS ON BIO-SEQUESTRATION OF ATMOSPHERIC CARBON DIOXIDE, ALONG WITH DAMAGE TO HABITAT, BIODIVERSITY LOSS, AND ARIDITY.
300 BILLIONTons of carbon is stored in the Earths forests, which helps regulate its climate by regulating atmospheric gases, stabilizing rainfall, and protecting against desertification
121+ Natural remedies in the rainforest can be used as medicines
DEFORESTATION AND FOREST DEGRADATION CAN CAUSE BIODIVERSITY TO DECLINE. WHEN FOREST COVER IS REMOVED, WILDLINFE IS DEPRIVED OF HABITAT AND BECOMES MORE VULNERABLE TO HUNTING. CONSIDERING THAT ABOUT 80% OF THE WORLD’S DOCUMENTED SPECIES CAN BE FOUND IN TROPICAL RAINFORESTS, DEFORESTATION PUTS AT RISK A MAJORITY OF THE EARTH’S BIODIVERSITY.
28,000 species are expected to become extinct by the next 25 years due to deforestation
MORE THAN HALF OF THE WORLD’S TIMBER AND 72% OF PAPER IS CONSUMED BY 22% OF THE WORLD’S POPULATION (THE UNITED STATES, EUROPE, AND JAPAN). WORLDWIDE, INDUSTRIALIZED COUNTRIES CONSUME OVER TWELVE TIMES MORE WOOD PRODUCTS PER PERSON THAN NON-INDUSTRIALIZED COUNTRIES.
20% OF CURRENT GREENHOUSE GAS
Tropical forest destruction accounts for about 20 percent of current greenhouse gas emissions
REMOVING TREES DEPRIVES THE FOREST OF PORTIONS OF ITS CANOPY, WHICH BLOCKS THE SUNS RAYS DURING THE DAY AND HOLDS IN HEAT AT NIGHT. THIS DISRUPTION LEADS TO MORE EXTREME TEMPERATURES SWINGS THAT CAN BE HARMFUL TO PLANTS AND ANIMALS.
4/10 TREESGet chopped down and are processed into pulp for making paper products such as tissue paper, toothpaste, magazines and more
WITHOUT TREE ROOTS TO ANCHOR THE SOIL AND WITH INCREASED EXPOSURE TO SUN, THE SOIL CAN DRY OUT, LEADING TO PROBLEMS LIKE INCREASED FLOODING AND INABILITY TO FARM. THE WWF STATUS THAT A THIRD OF THE WORLDS ARABLE LAND HAS DEEN LOST TO DEFORESTATION SINCE 1960. CASH CROPS PLANTED AFTER CLEAR CUTTING OR BURINING ? LIKE SOY, COFFEE, AND PALM OIL ? CAN ACTUALLY EXACERBATE SOIL EROSION DECAUSE THEIR ROOTS CANNOT HOLD ONTO THE SOIL THE WAY TREES CAN.
* In addition to donations through product sales, Dr. Grossman also donates tree for every vial of filler that is purchased in her office.
