How many of us hold onto our Harry Potter memories fondly when the Whomping Willows came out to play? Did you have a neighbour or family member whose apple tree was your ticket to a delightful autumn pie before school started again? Whether we knew it or not, the environment played a heart-warming role in many of our lives, but the presence of forestry bioenergy fuel and deforestation means there are now less and less trees across the globe.
With the focus throughout the pandemic being on supporting the healthcare sector using products and services generated from the forestry sector, deforestation has seen a further hit in the battle against climate change. Aside from providing an income for many living in rural areas, forests ease climate change by removing approximately a third of the global greenhouse gas emissions each year. With nearly the entire world in some form of lockdown, the global crisis represents the chance to shift to a sustainable and greener economy allowing society to withstand pandemic, climate change and other global economies by supporting the environment.
All of us at Majority want to see a green-favoured light at the end of this Coronavirus tunnel, which is why we’re partnering with Ecologi to continue the fight against climate change and create the Majority Forest. To support Ecologi’s mission to plant one billion trees, for every product we sell, we’ll be planting a tree on Ecologi’s and their tree planting partner The Eden Reforestation Projects sites in Madagascar, Nicaragua and Mozambique in the Majority Forest. As of February 2021, the Majority Forest has seen over 130,000 trees planted, 1.94 tonnes of CO2 removed in Guatemala and 15.73 tonnes of CO2 removed in Uganda.
