Why Planting Trees is Crucial for a Sustainable Future

Why Planting Trees is Crucial for a Sustainable Future

As a brand, we put sustainability at the forefront of everything we do, we work closely with the incredible team at treeapp to do our part for the environment. We have worked with them since their launch on Earth Day 2020. Treeapp are a certified B Corp company, (something we are working towards too) who enable everyone on their app to plant a tree everyday for free in the places where they are needed most. After less than two years treeapp hit a huge milestone of 1,000,000 trees planted and we are so proud to have played our part in reaching that goal. 

On average, once the trees have matured, 1 million trees will absorb around 26,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide each year. For comparison, these 1 million trees can offset the carbon emissions of more than 5,600 cars and half of the yearly carbon emissions of Kiribati, an independent island nation located in the central Pacific Ocean.

Planting trees is vital for several reasons. First, trees are an essential component of the earth's ecosystem, and they play a significant role in regulating the climate. Trees absorb carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and release oxygen through the process of photosynthesis. This process helps to reduce the concentration of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere, which is the primary cause of global warming.

Despite the many benefits of trees, deforestation remains a significant global issue. According to the World Wildlife Fund, around 18 million acres of forest are lost every year, mainly due to human activities such as logging, agriculture, and urbanisation. Deforestation not only contributes to climate change but also leads to soil erosion, loss of biodiversity, and the displacement of indigenous communities.

In conclusion, Treeapp is a unique mobile application that encourages people to take action to combat climate change by planting trees. The app provides a simple and effective way for people to make a positive impact on the environment while engaging in eco-friendly activities. By planting trees, we can help to combat climate change, prevent soil erosion, promote biodiversity, and create job opportunities for local communities. We should all consider using the Treeapp and other similar initiatives to make a positive difference in the world.
