Thanks to all our loved up customers who placed orders with us this Valentine's Day we have been able to share the love by planting lots more trees!
This month the trees donated from your orders will be planted in Ethiopia an area that is facing great challenges due to environmental degradation. Taking place on communal lands and around homesteads the planting of these trees will be tied to sustainable business for the local community: fruit and coffee production beekeeping and animal fattening. Community cooperatives will be the primary implementers of the project while school clubs will be established to engage in the tree plantation to learn by doing.
As always we would like to thank everyone who has placed an order with us and helped us to continue with this work that we feel so passionately about.
Wishing you a very happy February... keep spreading the love. x
Tanya David and all at The Drifting Bear Co.
