The Environmental Equity Committee

Our Mission

We are committed to advancing environmental justice by making community planting events more accessible to all regardless of income or race.




This committee caters to urban and/or low-income communities in hopes of helping them achieve successful tree planting events in areas with marginal tree coverage. 


Moreover, we aim to increase geographic and ethnic diversity within the Tree-Plenish team to ensure representation across the board. 

Issues we tackle

  • Low income, urban, and BIPOC communities have significantly lower quantities of green spaces within their neighborhoods compared to more affluent neighborhoods

  • Low income/BIPOC students may not have the same access to resources, school support, and/or leadership opportunities as their white counterparts
