Creative Tree-Plant Initiatives
18 million acres of forests are lost globally each year and that is a huge number of the overall forest debt we must recover. Interestingly, planting trees is low-tech, sustainable and possibly the most effective thing we can do to fight climate change. Trees have a vital role to play in our life. They store carbon, provide essential homes for wildlife, absorb air pollution, and are important spaces for pleasure and leisure. By planting a trillion trees, the amount of carbon that we can restore would be way higher than the next best climate change solution.
In recent years, many parties have made popular pledges to plant large numbers of new trees. Why don’t you yourselves get inspired and join the following interesting tree re-planting activities initiated by some organizations around the world:
