We did it 🌿 We kept our Earth Month Challenge promise, and we planted 50 trees in Australia with One Tree Planted.
Thank you for joining us in the Challenge. Keep buying from us to plant more.
Australia is currently experiencing one of the largest natural disasters in history. This year's fire season has brought about unprecedented destruction as wildfires have spread across every Australian state, burning up nearly 6 million hectares (15 million acres) of bush as of January 2020. But the devastation witnessed in the state of New South Wales is nearly unfathomable - 3.6 million hectares (8.8 million acres) have been lost, over 1,500 homes destroyed or damaged, and 24 people have been killed. New South Wales is home to some of the most iconic of Australia's wildlife - koalas, wombats, and kangaroos to name a few - and their habitat is rapidly declining.
At the moment, the focus in Australia is on managing and mitigating the fires at hand, as well as protecting properties and assessing the impact they have had on local communities and environments. Plenty of support will be needed to restore this landscape back to health.
While trees for this project will not go in the ground until the fires have ceased and the soil is ready for plantation, our support will help make sure One Tree Planted are ready to hit the ground running and repair the country’s beautiful and iconic landscape once planting season hits. They’re expecting to have the ability to contribute to the restoration of over 6 million trees across the country in 2020 thanks to their generous donors’ ongoing support.
Let's help them achieve their goal! Keep buying from us to plant more.
