Shaking the Tree Theatre is part of Stripe Climate, a coalition of businesses accelerating carbon removal. Shaking the Tree contributes 0.5% of our revenue to carbon removal. Carbon removal is critical to counteract climate change, but it’s behind. A fraction of every purchase from Shaking the Tree Theatre helps new carbon removal technologies scale.

The fossil fuel industry depends on continued extraction from and violence against the earth, and disproportionately creates collateral damage in Black, Indigenous, & BIPOC communities around the world. For far too long, United States theatres have given the fossil fuel industry a social license to operate - a pass on the harm they have caused people and the planet. Groundwater Arts is launching a Divest to Invest campaign, a movement to end the grasp fossil fuels has over our communities and our theaters. Shaking the Tree has signed Groundwater Arts' Divest to Invest campaign, and we have pledged that we will ACCEPT NO NEW fossil fuel sponsorships, that we will DIVEST FROM ALL fossil fuel sponsorships, & that we will DIVEST OUR ENDOWMENT from fossil fuel funds. More information on the campaign here.
