Plant a Tree
Ok you know me, I love anything that will help our green earth..so I found that Mokugift lets you plant real live trees, for $1 apiece, in countries experiencing deforestation. Plant a tree..go green!
You can make a difference. Plant a real tree for yourself or for a friend, and help promote a go green earth friendly environment. United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) has partnered with mokugift to make it easy for concerned citizens everywhere to plant trees.
Spread the inspiration, from one friend to another, so that, we can reach UNEP's goal of planting seven billion trees. That's roughly one tree for every person on the planet.
Environment Programme is helping to fight climate change and restore trees to cover our depleted lands.
Fact: On average, every tree that is planted in the humid tropics absorbs 50 pounds of carbon dioxide every year for at least 40 years, amounting to one ton over the course of the tree's lifetime.
There's no doubt that the effects of climate change is already being felt, and the earth's surface may be warming even faster than scientists initially anticipated.
No longer just a topic for debate among academics, environmentalists, industry lobbyists, climate change calls for action on the part of ordinary people like you and me everywhere. We can make a difference, but we need to act now!
Tree planting is easy... it's a good first step to a more environmentally earth friendly lifestyle. Plant a Tree..go green. Through its "Plant for the Planet: Billion Tree Campaign," the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) is appealing to all citizens to help reach there goal of planting seven billion trees—roughly one tree for every living person on the earth. Mokugift has partnered with UNEP to make it easy for anyone who cares about climate change—to take part in the Billion Tree Campaign.
How and Where: are my trees planted?
Nonprofit organizations specializing in agroforestry projects—plant the actual trees purchased via mokugift. Mokugift trees are planted in 12 tropical countries: Belize, Honduras, Nicaragua, Panama, Cameroon, Ethiopia, Burundi, Senegal, Zambia, India, Philippines and Haiti. Species include Cocoa, Coffee, Banana, Orange, Cedar, Teak, Mahogany, Oak, Acacia, Eucalyptus, Laurel and Leucaena.
"The study shows that tropical forests are very beneficial to the climate because they take up carbon and increase cloudiness, which in turn helps cool the planet."
