“They planted so we may eat, we plant so they may eat.”Palestinian proverb
Zaytoun is proud to support Trees for Life, a tree planting programme run by the Palestine Fair Trade Association. So far Zaytoun customers have sponsored the planting of over 85,000 trees!
The programme offers an opportunity to take positive action to support Palestinian farmers, planting hope and affirming their right to land and livelihood. It also makes a wonderful ethical gift for seasonal and religious celebrations.
The PFTA supports farmers whose land has been impacted by the occupation, and priority is given to young people and women who are starting out in farming, as well farmers whose land has been impacted by military or settler destruction.
