Planting Trees with REFORESTA

Plant a tree for every purchase!

How does our reforestation program work?


REFORESTA supports reforestation projects globally

REFORESTA is committed to supporting reforestation projects around the world through partnerships with various organizations. One of our partner organization is Eden Reforestation Projects, which has planted over 500 million trees and created thousands of jobs in countries such as Madagascar, Haiti, and Nepal. Through our partnerships with these and other organizations, we have achieved significant results in terms of reforestation and environmental impact. Our reforestation projects have helped to restore degraded land, prevent soil erosion, and promote biodiversity in areas that were previously barren or damaged.

In addition, the trees planted through our program absorb carbon dioxide and produce oxygen, helping to combat climate change and improve air quality. We are proud to support these reforestation projects and their positive impact on the environment and local communities. Through our Shopify application, customers can join us in this effort by planting a tree for every product or service they purchase. We also provide customers with information about the specific reforestation projects they are supporting, including the partner organizations involved and the achieved results.


Impact of planting Mangrove trees

Mangroves are unique ecosystems found throughout a wide range in the tropics and occupying the intertidal areas of more than 120 countries. Mangroves, and coastal wetlands in general, are globally important for the many services they provide to humans and the planet. These services include protection against storm surges, sheltering nurseries for fish and other marine life, providing building materials, firewood, and providing critically important services to stabilizing the global climate as an important store of carbon.

Mangroves, an incredible carbon sink

With the rapid increase in greenhouse gas emissions over the last century, the need for enduring carbon sinks has grown. The latest models suggest that to remain within"acceptable" global temperature increase, it is no longer enough to simply reduce emissions, and protect existing forests, but rather we need to rapidly increase the ability to sequester carbon. Globally, mangrove systems are estimated to hold an astounding 20 petagrams of carbon. For a biome representing less than 5% of the world's terrestrial area, this makes mangroves one of the most important carbon stocks, even more than many rainforests like the Amazon. Equally, as a relatively fast-growing group of species, mangroves sequester carbon at a very fast rate.

Help support wildlife and diversity

As forests are destroyed, wildlife species lose their natural habitat, forcing them to relocate, limiting their ability to survive. Madagascar is one of the world's greatest conservation priorities, with over 200 species of mammals, 100 species of lemurs, 300 species of birds, and almost 300 species of amphibians. Around ninety percent of all wildlife in Madagascar is endemic. Our work with Eden protects these wildlife species in Madagascar by restoring their natural habitats.
