A single seed sprouted, grew, and multiplied into a green home for all. Before the advent of humankind, forests covered the vast majority of land on this planet. But they have suffered heavy casualties from Human activities. Today, 3.5 to 7 billion trees are cut down per year. Forests are being transformed into cities, land wiped for agricultural and crop use. This rise of industrialisation is detrimental to our environment, and the wildlife that lives there. Forests have made it possible for life to thrive on Earth. Now it is our time to keep the party going.
Forests are entire ecosystems, and by recycling more efficiently, adapting our agricultural practices and (re-)planting trees, we can help to restore this world to what it was, and make it even better! Here at Plan A, we are helping patch our planet back together. With donations from you, we are channelling funds directly to organisations working on the frontlines of climate change. The organisations we partner with protect, restore and expand precious forests against illegal exploitation. They do this by replanting trees, establishing and maintaining protected areas and spreading knowledge on the value of live natural resources.
