BREATHE™ GiftTrees Much more than a tree Plant a Tree Now

About us

Breathe™️ Restaurant has been defined by a commitment to sustainability and since its opening four years ago.
Well, for some time now the guests of our restaurant have had the option of giving a tree as a gift. In this way, only the guests of Marbella have been responsible for the planting of more than 40,000 trees.

Aguilene Benicio CEO & Founder of Breathe began this journey after meeting Marvin Baker (CEO of Carbon Free Dining) in 2018, who excited her with the idea of investing in the planet through very specific actions. Baker, was already responsible of planting more than 2.6 Million trees in the planet.

The Breathe GiftTrees initiative will take community involvement to the next level.

By creating the Breathe GiftTrees platform, people can select how many trees they would like to see planted in their name, from a single tree to 1,000 or more!

"Together we have now planted
more than 40,000 trees"

The trees we plant and how they make a difference

Breathe GiftTrees are specially selected and planted in combination to create a viable, self-sustaining ecosystem that restores the soil, air, provides a natural habitat for wildlife and also important harvests for local communities – based upon the principles of sustainable farming.

The Moringa ‘miracle’ Tree

This marvel of nature is the main tool in our armory – it helps to extract carbon dioxide from the air, raises the water table, and restores the soil’s nutrients, laying the foundation for other species that create a live flora fence to keep cattle out, valuable crops for local communities to harvest, and natural insecticides that draw bugs away from the productive plants.

The Mango Tree

Rich in taste and with negligible fat content, the mango tree produces a fruit that has become hugely popular around the world. It is used in everything from fruit and chutneys to cooking, seasoning, and as a drink, and has a ready international market. Produced according to sustainable farming methods and provides local communities near the forests with a valuable business model and income.

The Papaya Tree

The sturdy papaya tree is well suited to the local conditions of the Usambara Mountains in Northern Tanzania, where it too forms an important sustainably grown cash crop for the local farming communities. The fruit can be eaten fresh or cooked, raw or ripened, and its leaves are also consumed in parts of the world, making this another valuable export product for the region.
