RETREET BLOG

RETREET is a kaleidoscopic group of bicycle and tree enthusiasts with strong backs, sharp minds, and big hearts who volunteer to replant communities whose trees have been lost to natural disaster.

Believe it or not, millions of years ago forests covered Antarctica. The weird trees that lived there at the time adapted to survive both for months on end without sunlight during winter, and for one very long day during summer. Learn more about the amazing dead forests of Antarctica. 

Then, check out the bicycle Ford produced with Pedego: a stylish super cruiser that can travel up to 20 miles at 20 mph on a single charge. That's certainly the first zero-emission vehicle they have made and a rather desirable ride!

The Nature Conservancy recently created a wonderful new campaign, If Trees Could Sing, through which well-known musicians share stories and facts about their favorite trees. Fun and educational! Definitely worth a look.
