Tree’s are vital for our air, water, biodiversity, health and our fight against climate change.
Accordingly, we've partnered with Ecologi to plant one tree for every order made on Salvos.
We plant our trees in Madagascar since more than 90% of Madagascar’s original forests have been destroyed. There are 200,000 species of plants and animals that don’t exist anywhere else in the world and they are being displaced due to deforestation.
We specifically plant Mangrove Trees. These trees are semi aquatic plants and according to the World Wild Life Foundation, Mangrove Trees might be one of the best defenses against a changing climate.
Mangrove forests are among the most carbon-rich habitats on Earth, able to store carbon for hundreds—even thousands—of years. Some studies estimate that mangrove forests are up to four times more effective than tropical rain forests at sequestering carbon.
Unfortunately, more than 35% of the world’s mangroves are already gone, cleared for agriculture or industry, or harvested for timber and that is why this work is so important.
