Tree planting – Changing our impact
Saturday, 5 June – World Environment Day 2021
At Mindroom we are wanting to recognise our business and environmental impact and we would like to make some positive changes for the planet and try to become a carbon-neutral school. As part of World Environment Day, 5th June 2021 we are taking our first step in this direction. We gifted each and every one of our students a tree in Australia.
As you may know, the 2019-20 Black Summer Bushfires had a huge environmental impact on the natural habitat and the one tree planted company is working with partners in Australia to restore the country’s native forests following last season’s catastrophic bushfires. Efforts are focused on mobilizing support for replanting efforts, developing nurseries and planting millions of trees with an army of volunteers and professional crews. Your support will help make sure we’re ready to hit the ground running. By planting trees in Australia, we are creating habitat corridors for koalas in New South Wales and Victoria, enhancing biodiversity in Western Australia, and promoting sustainable and regenerative agriculture practices with landowners.
With over 123 million hectares of native forests, Australia has the seventh-largest forest area in the world, making up three per cent of the Earth’s forests. These forests are unique and varied – ranging from ancient Gondwana rainforest and tropical mangroves to extensive bushlands made up of native acacia, melaleuca and eucalyptus trees. Your tree will help recover forests affected by the 2019-20 Black Summer Bushfires and restore native habitat vital for wildlife a little faster.
Moving forward we will also be looking for a long term partner where we will also be able to get our hands dirty and learn more about the process and even get involved.
Watch out for this space and if you would like to get involved you can contact Lina ([email protected]) to make our impact bigger.
