As the season shifts into Autumn and we prepare for the last few busy months of the year, we'd like to share which area of the world your orders have been helping to save this month.
Thanks to your continued support, we are able to work with our reforestation partners to plant trees in the Philippines. Over the last century, the Philippines has suffered a devastating amount of deforestation, mainly due to illegal logging activities. Heartbreakingly, this means the forest coverage has gone from 70% down to just 20% today.
With the help of your orders, Bamboo will be planted in Bukidnon, Mindanao. This will aid in restoring water cycles, preventing erosion, and reducing catastrophic flooding in the region. Thanks to it's regenerative and fast-growing nature, the bamboo planted will support the local economy and provide jobs to indigenous and impoverished communities.
As always, we are so grateful for every single order we receive, so thank you so much. Don't forget to do a little happy dance too... you're helping to restore the planet!
