The environment is a very important issue for us and so we have teamed up with the charity One Tree Planted in order to help their fight against world deforestation. Trees are being burned, degraded and logged at astonishing rates. Every two seconds areas of forest the size of football pitches are destroyed for agricultural expansion, livestock ranching, logging, infrastructure expansion and to tackle the problem of overpopulation. At this current rate, rainforests could completely disappear in the next 100 years. Deforestation is also responsible for 20% of the worlds current greenhouse gas emissions which are having a detrimental effect on climate change and global warming.
Trees are very important for providing oxygen, removing carbon dioxide from the environment, stabilising soil and giving life to the world's wildlife.
For every subscription we sell, one tree will be planted. We have decided to plant our trees in South America and in particular the Amazon Rainforest. The Amazon Rainforest is the world’s largest tropical rainforest, spanning over 5.5 million sq. kilometres Often referred to as “the lungs of the earth”, the Amazon produces more than 20% of the world’s oxygen. It is also home to over 44,000 plant and animal species, as well as over 2.5 million different insects! An estimated 500 indigenous tribes call this rainforest home, amounting to over 250,000 people who rely on its existence for survival. Planting trees here not only offers a chance to help all the millions of species that rely on the Amazon but also employs local tree planters and help fight against poverty in a handful of Latin American countries.
