Trees, Bicycles and Building Community
Categories: Boots With Roots: Tree Planting, Making Our Difference: TBL CSR
People are really hungry for genuine experiences of community that bring people together that they feel connect them to their neighbors.
- Paul Freedman, Founder, Rock the Bike
Part 5 of our Dig It documentary highlights the positive impacts of tree planting beyond health and environmental benefits; when trees grow, so does a sense of community.
Another good for community / good for the environment tool is also featured in this Dig It segment: the bicycle. Meet the founder of Rock the Bike, an organization created to help “bike people” spread enthusiasm and awareness for the environmental, health and cultural benefits of bicycles.
Dig It is a Timberland documentary focused on the positive impacts of tree planting and featuring community planting projects in Los Angeles, San Francisco and New York City.
