Trees for Life

“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.

Let’s get tree planting!

It costs £20 for five olive tree saplings to be distributed by the Palestinian Fair Trade Association (PFTA). We keep adminisrative costs to a minimum, so we’ve outlined a simple process below. We’re happy to answer any questions, so please email or phone us before you purchase if you’d like to know more.
