The world as we know it would literally CEASE TO EXIST. And while it’s hard to imagine a scenario in which every tree on earth is cut down, we are DESTROYING THE TREES WE HAVE AT AN ALARMING RATE.
In fact, we’re losing an area of forest the size of the UK every year — that’s about 26 MILLION HECTARES OF TREES LOST each year from 2014-2018.
WHY DOES IT MATTER?
The loss of trees effects more than just the amount of oxygen — it can also mean a LOSS OF CLEAN WATER and BIODIVERSITY which can result in harmful diseases for both humans and animals.
Trees don’t just contribute to clean air, they contribute to CLEANER LIVING in every aspect.
TREES ARE VITAL FOR OUR SURVIVAL — but you don’t have to take it from us. We loved receiving these ‘tree-love’ stories from the Boomí community. We hope you enjoy reading them just as much as we did!
So what can you do to KEEP OUR FORESTS — and in turn, YOU — HEALTHY?
While there are many SMALL STEPS you can take to make a difference today — such as using LESS PLASTIC, BUYING LESS stuff, REDUCING use of CARS and PLANES and so much more — planting trees it is an important step in ensuring our future.
PLANTING TREES has a massive impact in terms of absorbing atmospheric carbon dioxide, the main driver of climate change.
Tom Crowther is a climate change ecologist at Swiss university ETH Zurich, his team of researchers has calculated there is enough room on the planet for an additional 1.2 trillion trees!
WE’VE GOT A LOT OF PLANTING TO DO!
This is why we’ve partnered with Roots & Shoots to plant 25 FORESTS BY THE END OF 2025 IN INNER MONGOLIA — an area plagued by DESERTIFICATION**.
[**DESERTIFICATION is the process by which fertile land becomes desert, typically as a result of drought, deforestation, or inappropriate agriculture.]
By planting trees here, it ensures that the animals and plants that are supposed to live in this region can do so.
Reducing desertification also PROTECTS HUMANS FROM NATURAL DISASTERS such as flooding and dust storms — while providing cooling shade and more oxygen!
We’ve already been able to plant 2,000 trees thanks to you!
