Summary

If there's one thing we learned from the pandemic of 2020, it's that the world is a lot more interdependent than we had realized. Wherever we live, whatever we do, we share the same hopes and dreams. We want to breathe fresh air, drink pure water and ensure that our children inherit a strong, resilient planet. Global warming demands immediate action, and our single most urgent task is to mobilize every available resource to protect and restore the ecosystems on which all our lives depend.

Challenge

Brazil's Atlantic Rainforest is a treasure house of biological riches, some still unidentified by science. Yet, due to centuries of deforestation, the once mighty forest it is now approaching its tipping point. Temperatures are rising, soils are eroding, species are vanishing, and weather patterns are getting increasingly unpredictable. On-farm springs are drying up, endangering local livelihoods. Restoring the forest is no longer just a romantic idea. It's an economic and moral imperative.

Solution

Science tells us that one of the quickest, most effective ways of mitigating the effects of climate change is through planting trees (IPCC 2019), which is why we're collaborating with local farmers to reforest their land and protect their water. We donate the seedlings, help with preparing the land, and plant and maintain the young forests until they are firmly established. Our goal is to plant 55,000+ trees, by working with the community planting forests for water. Planting water for life.

Long-Term Impact

Restoring ecosystems demands awareness raising, people power, time, energy and money. Former forest areas are priority sites for restoration, and as forests grow, here's what happens. They help stabilize the climate through storing carbon. They increase soil fertility, improve livelihoods, regenerate springs, enlarge habitat, and protect biodiversity. We all breathe a little more easily. It's good for people, good for the environment and good for the planet - our only home. Won't you join us?
