Our first project for our Plant A Tree Commitment starts with - The Eden Project, Madagascar.
The Eden Project, Madagascar.
A little background -
Madagascar is more than just an island from an animated movie. It’s a nation with over 200,000 species of plants and animals that don’t exist anywhere else in the world. But more than 90% of Madagascar’s original forests have been destroyed, displacing entire animal species and taking away the Malagasy’s ability to farm and live on the land. Entire mangrove estuaries are gone, leaving the bare earth to wash away into the sea.
Why we chose The Eden Project -
Deforestation is a major issue in Madagascar because of its high concentration of endemic species and extreme rates of habitat loss. The destruction of healthy forest systems causes so many different problems.
Trees provide a habitat for animals, purify water sources, control flooding and erosion and help to replenish the soil with nutrients needed for farming. When farmers can’t grow anything their farms fail and they have no option but to move to the overcrowded cities looking for work. Often they have to resort to selling themselves or their families into slavery just to survive.
Tree-Nation is the largest reforestation platform. They also hire local villagers to plant trees.
We believe this is an amazing commitment which benefits the locals in Madagascar, every single species as well as our amazing planet! Together we are making the world of a difference and all we need is you to shop as you always have, but this time while you shop a tree is going to be planted too.
