Save Our Trees!

You must be a garden, 'cause we're digging you Addictees!

Now that we've got that out of our system, remember the show “Heroes”, the American sci-fi series where a bunch of superhumans kept running around saying, “Save the cheerleader. Save the world!”? That phrase and Hayden Panettone (Panettiere) dating Milo Venti Cappuccino (Ventimiglia) - scandalous according to E! News - is pretty much what’s left of the show in our memories. Frankly, we can’t remember if the cheerleader was looking to throw her nuclear pompoms at the ozone layer or how exactly she was planning to ‘save the world’.

Replace ‘cheerleader’ with trees and we can talk real heroes. Quite simply, no trees, no world. Without them, there’d be none of this “Bruce and Beryl sitting in a tree k-i-s-s-i-n-g.” Nope – nada – zilch. You all know what else they’re good for so you don’t need us preaching at you.

And now, to the point. Addicted’s Anthea Missy recently produced two prints: 'Save Our Trees, Save Us' and 'Natura est ars Dei' based on her original street art murals (see below for vids). Yes, we get the irony: prints = paper = murder / death / kill to the trees BUT, for every print sold, Anthea is donating USD $10.00 to where USD $1.00 plants 1 tree in the region of your choice (North America, Latin America, Asia and Africa). One Tree Planted will pool the donations for each project and send the funds to its reforestation partner enabling them to get the trees in the ground. Cool right? Not only will you get a groovy print, you can wear the tree planting badge of honour. It’s a win-win and high-5s all 'round!

But wait, there's more! Anthea will also donate USD $100 from the sale of Mother Earth (original on canvas) from her Love and Beyond series. We're feeling greener already!

Check out the bits below for details.

You’re barking up the wrong tree if you’re looking for a cheerleader in this neck of the woods! Geddit? That’s double points right there: bark… woods - kapow!  

Ok, off to take our meds now.

Until the next one… B & E lovin’ the tree – we are Groot
