Stand For Trees

type:Donation, Project
by:Deniz Zehra Tavli

Forests are the lungs of the earth and our greatest ally in fighting climate change. But instead of returning the favor, we cut them down. It’s estimated that roughly 15% of global annual greenhouse gas emissions today are the result of deforestation and forest degradation.

Stand For Trees is a global and grassroots intervention with the goal to protect forests and restore those that have been degraded. It is in fact one among the easiest options for slowing climate change: It doesn’t require any new technological breakthrough – just the participation of people willing to stop deforestation and the severe consequences of it.

One can support the Stand For Tress project by purchasing a unique and verified carbon credit. Each Stand For Trees Certificate one purchases supports a specific forest community so the trees remain protected and offset a tonne of CO2 from entering the earth’s atmosphere helping trees to live and do, what they do best: store carbon, produce oxygen, provide habitat and support local communities.

Support this important project and do a tonne of good!
