1% For the Planet & Our Commitment to The Cumberland Forest
Since the inception of Harmonic Arts in 2009, our dream has been to support the health of people and planet. Through our core values of continuous improvement and sustainable action, we see it as our responsibility to find creative ways to be the change we want to see in the world. As proud partners of 1% for the Planet, we directly support the efforts of the Cumberland Community Forest Society while reducing our impact on the earth.

The Cumberland Community Forest Society
The Cumberland Community Forest Society (CCFS) is a charitable organization whose mission is to purchase, protect and care for the Cumberland Forest. Guided by the belief that this forest is worth more to our community than timber, the society is supported by individuals, organizations and businesses from across the region and beyond. To date, CCFS has purchased 545 acres of forest and placed it under conservation covenants to preserve important wildlife habitat as well as hiking and biking trails enjoyed by our local community.

Harmonic Arts’ Contributions
Inspired by the actions of CCFS, we’ve found a number of ways to support their work in our hometown of Cumberland, BC. Here's an outline of our contributions over the years:
2013-2016: We raised close to $10,000 in donations from our Artisan Tea Sales and donations from the Vancouver Island Herb Gathering.
2017-2018: We donated profits from all our tea blends to the forest initiative in a campaign we called #teafortrees. This allowed us to raise an additional $10,000.
2019-2023: To date, we've raised over $76,175 in funds to support the Cumberland Community Forest Society.
