Sunday 21st March marks International Day of Forests, a day to remember the part forestry, both reforestation and afforestation, plays in society and the environment. Whether we notice it or not, forests are vital for our survival. As the second-largest storehouses of carbon, forests absorb harmful greenhouse gases that produce climate change. Beyond the service forests provide to the environment, humans rely on forests for daily life such as food and medicine. Additionally, during natural disasters such as floods, forests can prevent further damage to livelihoods and by acting as a buffer and sometimes, a route to safety. The forestry sector equates to over 13 million jobs, making it vital for economical survival. Aside from financial growth, forests are home to 80% of animals living on land.
How do I get involved?
Whether you’re replacing trees that have been cut down or you’re growing a tree on untouched land, tree planting is one of most accessible ways to help the environment. With the growing concern over global warming and climate change, tree planting is one of the most talked about methods of dealing with global warming.
In today’s world, the rate at which trees grow naturally in forests is much slower than the rate at which trees in forests are being cut down for production. The increased demand for tree products has put pressure on deforestation. Planting more trees is helping alleviate the pressure on natural forests by providing an alternative source of tree products.
Play and Plant
To help fight the damage of global warming, we’re partnering with Ecologi to build the Majority Forest. Ecologi is on a mission to plant one billion trees, so for every product we sell, we’ll be planting a tree on Ecologi’s sites in Madagascar, Nicaragua and Mozambique. As of March 2021, the Majority has planted over 130,000 trees and removed 29.67 tonnes of CO2.
