For every Ceres Market order, we plant a mangrove tree, restore kelp or restore corals through our SeaTrees partnership. By adding this product to your cart you can cover the cost of any of these restoration projects and/or make a bigger impact by adding more mangroves to your order.


Why mangrove trees? Because 90% of all carbon in the GLOBAL carbon cycle is stored in the ocean. This is where it should be sequestered to reverse climate change. Mangroves forests “suck” (aka sequester) 5-10 times more CO2 out of the atmosphere per hectare than tropical rainforests. Much of that carbon is stored in the soil and sediment that make up a mangrove ecosystem.
Globally, kelp forests sequester as much CO2 as the world’s mangroves. 10% of kelp breaks off and sinks into the deep ocean - sequestering the CO2 it contains.

We’ll be planting your mangrove SeaTrees in the Biak Region of West Papua in Indonesia.

Specifically, we’re planting on a small island called Padaido. Every 10 mangrove trees planted:
● Creates approximately 1/2 day of living-wage employment for local community members, helping to support 55 families
● Provides resources for local education
● Protects local villages from storm surges and sea-level rise
● Serves as critical nursery grounds for fish and shellfish, and increases local marine productivity
● Has the potential to sequester more than 3 metric tons of carbon dioxide over the 25-year life of the trees
