Hi there! As you may already know we have partnered up with a non-profit organisation One Tree Planted to plant one tree from each purchase at Yogacycled shop every month. I want to say thank you again for your contribution. Let’s make our planet great again!
WHY ARE TREES SO IMPORTANT TO THE ENVIRONMENT?
Trees help clean the air we breathe, filter the water we drink and provide habitat to over 80% of the world’s terrestrial biodiversity. As well as that forests absorb harmful carbon from the atmosphere.
This month with your help we are planting trees in Brazil.
The Atlantic Forest, also known as Mata Atlantica, once covered 130 million hectares across Brazil. Now, this tropical rainforest ecosystem is home to more than half of the country’s population. Centuries of deforestation for timber, sugar cane, coffee, cattle ranching, and urban sprawl have reduced the size of the forest by over 90%. Although the water supply for Brazil’s two most populous cities (Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo) comes from this forest, there is a lack of public policies and resources to protect it.
What impact does it have?
One Tree Planted partners in Brazil are working to restore 15 million hectares of the Atlantic Forest by 2050. By helping plant trees in this critically important forest you are promoting the conservation of biodiversity, creating jobs and income opportunities for communities, and establishing sustainable land management practices among Brazilian landowners. The 15 million hectares of the restored forest also has the potential to sequester 200 million tonnes of CO2 annually and will help restore water quality and quantity for the millions of people in Rio de Janeiro, São Paulo, and so many of the surrounding communities.
