We are pleased to announce that we have planted 460 trees in Australia through the non-profit organization One Tree Planted.
One Tree Planted is a nonprofit organization dedicated to global reforestation. They plant trees to restore nature and biodiversity. They also raise awareness about the importance of trees, offer businesses like ours a simple sustainability solution, and motivate younger generations to do something positive for the environment.
The 2019-2020 wildfires in Australia
It is estimated that the 2019-2020 bushfires in Australia emitted around 700 million tonnes of carbon dioxide into the air. In addition, up to 480 million animals were killed in these fires, among these the koala bear. And it is estimated that Australia has lost 30 percent of its koala population since 2018 due to bushfires, drought and land clearing.
The environmental devastation caused by bushfires on ecosystems is a very serious and pressing issue for Australia, which is why we chose to donate to reforestation in this part of the world from our sales in December.
