We’re planting a tree for every ticket at Green Live

Planting 12,500 trees to fight climate change

We’ve teamed up with Green Live to plant a tree for every ticket holder at the London Green Live event. This means 12,500 trees will be planted in a single day. 

Planting trees is one of the most effective ways we have to fight climate change. Not only do they remove CO2 from the atmosphere, but they also stop desertification, protect wildlife, and replenish soil.

Despite these benefits, humans are cutting down the world’s forests at an alarming rate. In the last 50 years, over 50% of the Amazon rainforest has been destroyed. This is why we urgently need to reverse the trend and start planting more trees now. Every tree planted with Green Live will support the environment and help work towards a more sustainable future for our planet.

Where will Green Live’s trees be planted?

These trees will be spread across sites in Haiti, Indonesia, Kenya, Madagascar, Mozambique, Nepal, and Central America. Tree planting is carried out by local communities with support from Eden, supporting fair wage employment for communities around the world. Involvement from locals also means that the trees are monitored to ensure they are not cut down or damaged.

How does planting trees help the environment?

As trees grow, they absorb carbon dioxide from the air, helping to balance the emissions produced by human activities, such as burning fossil fuels. However, trees do a lot more than just sucking up CO2. Over eighty percent of the Earth’s land animals and plants live in forests, and removing trees threatens their habitats, pushing many species to the brink of extinction. Trees also play a crucial role in the water cycle, as well as restoring landscapes, stabilising shorelines and mountain sides, and improving soil quality. This has a direct impact on human livelihoods, as many communities around the world depend on forests for food, work, and income.
