Many feel defenseless against the onslaught of climate change. They feel like there is nothing they can do and no meaningful actions they can take. But that is not the case.
In fact, one of the easiest and most effective things we can do is plant trees!
Deforestation is a major contributor to global greenhouse gas emissions, responsible for up to 15% of global greenhouse gas emissions. Deforestation plays such an oversized role in climate change, in fact, that part of the 2015 Paris Agreement singled out both the end of deforestation and the importance of reforestation to hitting national climate goals. Planting trees – lots and lots of trees – is the best way to counteract deforestation.
In just one year, a mature leafy tree produces as much oxygen as ten people breathe!
Help Earth Day Network plant trees in areas of the world most in need of reforestation. We’ve made a pledge to plant 7.8 billion trees over the next 4 years. Help us year our goal. Every dollar you donate allows us to plant a tree!
And make sure to think of your donation as an Act of Green. Every little bit helps. And we like to keep track.
