The deforestation and desertification caused by human activities and climate change pose major challenges to sustainable development and have negative impacts on the lives, work and living conditions of millions of people. That’s why we decided to work with the non-profit organization One Tree Planted, to replant forests that need help.
The Amazon forest is home to nearly 30% of plant and animal species on Earth. Unfortunately, due to logging, unsustainable agriculture, and forest fires, it’s also a high risk zone for deforestation and degradation. Planting trees in the Amazon Rainforest will help conserve habitat for biodiversity, restore soils and establish sustainable agroforestry with the resources of the Amazon.
In the last 50 years, the Indonesian tropical forests and unique wildlife have been regularly threatened and ravaged by fire. Planting trees will gradually restore the ecosystem, improve habitat for biodiversity, sequester carbon, and fight climate change.
Reforestation is a major challenge for Haiti. Centuries of over-farming and poor agricultural methods have destroyed the region’s soil. Erosion makes it very difficult to grow food, and dramatically increases the impact of natural disasters. Planting trees here will help restore nutrients to the soil and teach local farmers how to use the land responsibly and profitably.
