8 Billion Trees Co-founder Jon Chambers
8 Billion Trees Co-founder Jon Chambers is using his passion for environmental conservation to make a global impact through tree planting and preservation.
Growing up in scouting, Jon was inspired from a young age with a love for the planet and all things nature-related.
After attending the United States Military Academy at West Point, however, he realized a sense of urgency to follow his true calling--environmental activism.
But not just environmental activism...action-driven activism to help make an immediate, real impact for the planet.
Launching 8 Billion Trees alongside Co-founder Michael Powell, Jon established a planting operation in the Amazon Rainforest, receiving the support of local government officials and research institutes in Brazil.
Since then, the 8 Billion Trees movement has only grown, now going viral with supporters in countries all around the world.
