This year we've collaborated with Treedom to plant our very own forest and make a small contribution to the health of this beautiful planet we live on.
What is Treedom?
Treedom is a platform that allows users to plant a tree from afar then follow the story of the project where it is planted online. It was founded in 2010 in Florence, and since then over 2.000.000 trees have been planted across Africa, South America, and Italy. All of their trees are planted by local farmers and bring environmental, social, and financial benefits to the local community.
Why a tree? Why Treedom?
Treedom's "trees are planted in agroforestry projects that promote virtuous interaction among different species and sustainable use of resources and land.
All trees are good for the environment: they absorb CO2, emit oxygen, promote biodiversity, counteract soil erosion and much more.
Rural communities involved in our projects receive training and financial support. They are the ones who take care of the trees and enjoy their fruits."
Treedom's "philosophy is to create sustainable ecosystems and allow farmers to meet the initial costs of planting trees, ensuring food sovereignty and income opportunities."

Why partner with Treedom?
If this past year has taught us anything, it has taught us the importance of nature - both for the health of our planet and for the health of OURSELVES. There is no doubt that many of us have increased the amount of time spent walking outside, in parks, along the seaside, in the forest. Our connection to the environment around us is a constant, and it's our job to give as much as we receive from Mother Earth.
Treedom has provided us with an easy way for us to make a difference both digitally and on site at the festival. As a Soul Setter, you can follow this link to purchase a tree, then watch your tree AND the Soul Circus forest grow. If you're coming to the festival, you'll also have an opportunity to purchase on site and join this wonderful community.
The Soul Circus Forest is something we'll build together to make a lifetime of change for the planet and the people who benefit from this planet.
BONUS: We have a discount code that will get 15% off your tree. It can be used once per person and expires at the end of 2021. The code is: SOULCIRCUS
