$20 for 200 square feet
of Amazon rainforest

A contribution of $20, the value of a take-out meal, could restore just over 200 square feet of Amazon rainforest and remove more than a ton of CO2 from the atmosphere over the next 30 years. In addition, another 200 square feet of Amazon rainforest will be protected from deforestation. So a total of over 400 square feet of forest will be restored or protected.

 

In collaboration with the
land owners

The project is done in collaboration with landowners. ViridisTerra helps owners bring back forest cover where nothing grows anymore due to deforestation. Part of the land will be converted into an agroforestry system to grow products such as cocoa, medicinal plants and coffee. These agroforestry systems are comparable to indigenous forest gardens. Unlike monocultures, no fertilizers or chemicals are needed. These agroforestry systems also make it possible to sustain a biodiversity level equal or greater than what existed before deforestation.

 

Benefits related to reforestation

Landowners will have benefits directly related to reforestation. This allows them to no longer need to continue deforestation to ensure their livelihood. And it is in their interest to continue to take care of their forest. Commodities certified zero-deforestation will be sold. Profits from the sale of commodities from agroforestry developments are shared between landowners and investors in the TreesOfLives project.

 

An impact for decades to come

Rafela will use these returns on investments to help restore even more land. Your contribution today will continue to have impacts for decades to come. If you can invest more than $5,000, you can contact the TreesOfLives team directly to make the investment yourself!
