Let’s put white label telecoms to the side for the moment and talk trees. Trees. They are such a familiar part of our lives that it is easy to take them for granted. But in so many parts of the world – including in the UK – forests are being cut down at a shocking rate to make way for urban developments and mass farming practices. This is terrible for the communities where deforestation occurs, is devastating to wildlife, and contributes to the build-up of CO2 in the atmosphere that accelerates global warming.
On the flipside of the coin, however, the good news is that replanting trees and restoring forests has a positive impact on climate change – and is one of the most straightforward things people can do to bring about a more sustainable future.
Of course, running around planting trees on every scrap of spare ground isn’t practical or achievable for the average person, which is why the service provided by Ecologi.com is such a great way of getting involved. Ecologi are a charitable venture that help fund tree-planting, carbon reduction, and conservation projects in various countries, drawing on contributions from individuals and businesses. The benefits of these projects are widespread, helping reduce extreme poverty in disadvantaged communities, improving local habitats, and strengthening economies. Together, Ecologi’s donors enable the planting of millions of trees per year and play a practical role in removing excess CO2 from the atmosphere.
