Australia is currently experiencing one of the largest natural disasters in history. This year's fire season has brought about unprecedented destruction as wildfires have spread across every Australian state, burning up nearly 6 million hectares (15 million acres) of bush as of January 2020. But the devastation witnessed in the state of New South Wales is nearly unfathomable - 3.6 million hectares (8.8 million acres) have been lost, over 1,500 homes destroyed or damaged, and many people have been killed. New South Wales is home to some of the most iconic of Australia's wildlife - koalas, wombats, and kangaroos to name a few - and their habitat is rapidly declining.
While trees for this project will not go in the ground until the fires have ended and the soil repaired, by supporting this project now you are making sure the partners in Australia are ready to hit the ground running and repair this beautiful and iconic landscape.
ONE TREE PLANTED AND WHY
I have found the most incredible organisation to work with. Deforestation and wildfires have had a massive impact on the environment. As a small business, I want to do my best to reduce my impact, using recycled packaging where possible and reducing plastic.
Trees help clean the air we breathe, filter the water we drink, and provide habitat to over 80% of the world's terrestrial biodiversity. They also provide jobs to over 1.6 billion people, absorb harmful carbon from the atmosphere, and are key ingredients in 25% of all medicines.
One Tree Planted are a non profit organisation completely focused on global reforestation.
They work on a $1 donation for 1 tree and so that is something you can do here today. As the dollar to the pound varies I will keep the £GBP donation as close as I can to the current rates.
HOW IT WORKS
When you place your Plant a Tree order through this website, you can choose how many trees you wish to donate. I will gather all the donations for that particular month and make one donation at the end of each month and let you know when this has happened.
Thank you for supporting One Tree Planted and helping the environment.
