Join the movement, 1 tree planted for every order
Your purchases will result in the planting of mangrove trees in Madagascar. We allocate a percentage of every purchase to support tree planting initiatives. This not only rejuvenates natural ecosystems, enhances the well-being of coral reefs, sustains local communities, but also plays a vital role in combating climate change by removing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.
Impact of planting Mangrove trees
Mangrove ecosystems are exceptional and can be found in a vast expanse of tropical regions, spanning the intertidal zones of over 120 nations. These mangroves, along with coastal wetlands in general, hold significant global importance due to the multitude of benefits they offer to both humanity and the Earth. These benefits encompass shielding against storm surges, serving as nurturing grounds for fish and various marine species, supplying essential resources such as construction materials and firewood, and playing a critical role in stabilizing the global climate by acting as a vital carbon repository.
Why Mangrove trees?
Due to the rapid surge in greenhouse gas emissions in the past century, there is an escalating demand for long-lasting carbon storage solutions. Current models suggest that to keep global temperature increases within "acceptable" limits, it is no longer sufficient to merely reduce emissions and protect existing forests; we must instead rapidly enhance our capacity to capture and store carbon. Mangrove ecosystems globally are estimated to contain an astonishing 20 petagrams of carbon. Given that mangroves cover less than 5% of the world's land area, this makes them one of the most significant carbon reservoirs, even surpassing many rainforests like the Amazon. Furthermore, being a group of relatively fast-growing species, mangroves have the capability to capture carbon at an impressive rate.
Contribute to the preservation of wildlife and biodiversity
When forests are eradicated, it results in the displacement of wildlife species from their native habitats, severely constraining their chances of survival. Madagascar stands out as a top global conservation concern, home to more than 200 mammal species, 100 lemur species, 300 bird species, and close to 300 amphibian species. Approximately ninety percent of Madagascar's wildlife is found nowhere else on Earth. Our collaboration with Eden is aimed at safeguarding these unique wildlife species in Madagascar by rejuvenating and preserving their natural environments.
