green-planet-appeal: Plants trees in the developing world through our planting partner, giving education, jobs and the raw materials to create sustainable agroforestry systems; through a network of technicians, volunteers and community leaders worldwide, all these programmes reach out and provide the knowledge and ability to rehabilitate our environment. Our primary planting partner’s network has helped thousands of communities in Latin America, Africa, and Asia improving their livelihoods and our environment by planting nearly 65 million trees. These trees remove over one and a half million tons of CO2 from the atmosphere each year.
