You plant one, We plant one.
This means the rehabilitation of threatened ecosystems that without you, would never have been achieved.
Apart from the reforestation projects, by switching from single use plastics to a reusable lunch packing solution you have made an incredible step in the right direction.
Being too focused on the ideal can be the enemy of making progress in the now. But the steps we are taking today will encourage more and more people to make the small but easily achievable changes in their life, which when done together, will have a real impact on our environment.
Thank you for being a part of this important journey. We're all in this together.

Current Reforestation Project Map:
Our planet is currently losing over 15 billion trees each year—that’s 56 acres of forest every minute!
Earth Day Network’s Canopy Project plants trees to benefit local communities, increase habitat for species, and combat climate change.

Spotlight Project: Planting fruit trees in India
July 31, 2017: Earth Day Network is supporting the planting of 51,000 fruit trees and fruit tree saplings around Lalitpur, some of the poorest and most drought prone villages of Bundelkhand in Uttar Pradesh, India. The fruit trees will benefit struggling farmers, providing food and income in Anaoura village, Lalitpur, Bundelkhand, UP, India. Our partners at India’s Sustainable Green Initiative have scheduled the plantings to benefit from the upcoming monsoon rains.
Fruit trees are an important natural and economic tool available to alleviate hunger and poverty, and to combat climate change. With education and on-going support, the 51,000 fruit trees will be nurtured by 120 local farmer families.
In addition, the trees will help rebuild the natural environment after the severe 2015 drought across India, in which Bundelkhand stood out as the worst affected region.
Lalitpur district has a population of over 1.2 million people and is known for its many historical and cultural attractions including important Hindu and Jain temples. The climate of the district is sub-tropical, which is characterised by a very hot, dry summer and a cold winter.
