This exciting partnership grew out of Sukin’s core belief that whatever we need to nourish our bodies can be found in nature, so we must do everything in our power to protect and maintain our natural resources. Through long-term, high-impact environmental solutions like the work of Trees For Our Future, Sukin believes we can create substantial change for our people and our planet.
The urgent need to compensate for the harmful effects of deforestation
Deforestation is endemic across the world and is one of the main human-made contributors to climate change. When trees are felled or burned, they release their stored carbon dioxide into the air; now that these trees are gone, there are fewer trees to absorb the increase in C02. According to Climate Institute, it is estimated that 25% of total global greenhouse gas production comes from deforestation.
Our planet is losing the astonishing value of 50 forest football fields every minute. Much of this deforestation occurs in the developing tropics of Africa, Latin America, and South and South East Asia where millions of chronically hungry farming families unwittingly use short-sighted and destructive farming tactics. This can further degrade the trees, soil, water and biodiversity of their communities, further contributing to climate change.
The monumental and eternal impact of Tree For The Future
Sukin chose to partner with Trees For The Future for its unwavering commitment to end hunger and poverty and offset the damaging effects of deforestation by training farmers to regenerate their land. With over 30 years of working in the fields, Trees For The Future has so far planted 211 million trees in dozens of countries, revitalizing over 30,000 acres of soil while improving the lives of hundreds of thousands of families. poor.
Their 4-year forest garden program provides farmers with the tools, tree seedlings and other biodegradable materials to start their farms. Farmers plant thousands of trees that protect and bring nutrients back to the soil, allowing them to grow a variety of fruits and vegetables. From there, Trees For The Future mentors farmers to develop regenerative farming practices that will keep their land and surrounding community healthy and prosperous. During this relatively short period, families in the community gain food security, farmers are able to provide for their families, and farms encourage long-term soil and ecosystem biodiversity.
Through this incredibly meaningful and ongoing partnership with Trees For The Future, Sukin is proud to contribute to a better world for all.
