We are proud to have chosen TreeSisters as our official partner to help us make this a reality. Tropical reforestation is the fastest path to climate repair and protection. TreeSisters helps fund the planting of fast-growing tropical trees in Mozambique, Madagascar, West Papua, Cameroon, Kenya, India, Nepal, the Brazilian Atlantic Forest and the Amazon Rainforest. To date, TreeSisters has funded the planting of almost 15 million trees!
TreeSisters is a UK registered social change and reforestation charity that places tropical forest restoration into everyone’s hands. Through individuals and businesses that give back to Nature every month, TreeSisters has so far funded the planting of over 15 million trees across 12 locations in Brazil, Borneo, Cameroon, India, Kenya, Mozambique, Madagascar, Nepal and West Papua.
We fund a diverse portfolio of tropical reforestation projects that are ethical, community-led, expand natural forest cover and aim to avoid further deforestation. Our projects support local communities and improve livelihoods, protect critically endangered species, and focus on gender parity and the participation of women. They are a direct and measurable way to restore the web of life and mitigate climate change. We are actively encouraging the cultural shift required to grow from a consumer to a restorative culture. We encourage feminine leadership by providing resources, experiences and communities that inspire personal and collective action on behalf of the trees.
We focus on the creation of resources and experiences that empower women to step into their feminine Nature-based leadership, in support of humanity's identity shift from a consumer species to a restorer species. Our approach is the balance of inner and outer, spiritual and practical, behavioural and ecological pathways towards that shift. This is a process of discovering how to engage, nourish, inspire and activate women into their unique gifts and generosity on behalf of themselves, each other and the forests that we love and need.
We are now living through the most immense scale of destruction to our planet. Since I was born in 1990, we have lost more than 1.3 million square kilometres of forest (National Geographic). In the last 50 years, 17% of the Amazonian forest has been destroyed, and the WWF predicts that between 2010-2030 420 million acres of forest will be lost. As we now sit in the middle of that projection, being conscious of the crisis, recycling, and carrying a tote bag is not enough; this is the minimum. We have to be part of the change. This is why I am proud we are now taking a more proactive approach by planting 100,000 trees and the Mind Body Spirit Forest.
