Planting trees to save our forests
We aim to plant 1,000,000 trees by 2025
We love trees, and deeply appreciate the vital role they play in supporting all life on our planet. Therefore not only is our packaging plastic free, but we also plant a tree for every bottle, food pot or travel cup purchased.
Who we work with?
Eden Reforestation Projects works to reduce extreme poverty within communities affected by the impact of deforestation.
This is done by employing local villagers to plant trees, thereby giving them an opportunity to earn an income to support their families whilst restoring forests and reducing the negative effects brought about by their destruction.
Why is deforestation so detrimental to these communities?
The destruction of healthy forest systems causes problems on a number of levels. 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.
Our Impact so far
Our tree planting journey has just begun in the last 12 months we have planted over 8,900 trees and things are just getting started.
