One Candle = One Tree
Planting trees is one of the things we can do to help climate change and improve the health of the planet.
It's easy to feel helpless when it comes to what we can do to help the environment, and that’s why we’ve made it super simple to help the planet.
As of 31st Dec we have planted
Trees in the Amazon Rainforest
We are official reforestation partners of One Tree Planted, helping them on their mission to restore forests, create habitat for biodiversity, and make a positive social impact around the world.
One Tree Planted is a non-profit organisation that has planted over 30 million trees. They have projects all over the world, and we help support their Amazon Rainforest reforestation projects.
TREES WHERE THEY ARE NEEDED MOST
The Amazon Rainforest is the the world's largest rainforest ecosystem, spanning 9 countries and home to many rare species, including tapirs, spider monkeys, jaguars, and caiman.
The Amazon Rainforest holds an estimated 90-140 billion metric tons of carbon, and plays a critical role in the fight against climate change. Unfortunately, due to logging, unsustainable agriculture, and forest fires, we have already lost one million square kilometers to deforestation.
We support tree planting projects that help protect the Amazon's biodiverse primary forests, and restore degraded land.
As well as tree planting, the projects work with local farmers to establish agroforestry, providing a long term income that is sustainable economically as well as environmentally.
A big driver of deforestation in the Amazon is over-farming. By balancing sustainable agroforestry with native tree plantation, we can restore nutrients to the soil and restore the rainforests.
