Plant Trees. Save Lives: The Eden Reforestation Projects & Bungalow.Net
Deforestation is a huge global problem, caused by many factors, ranging from large-scale extraction, burning practices, agriculture and many more.
As it so often goes, the most affected areas are those inhabited by poverty-stricken communities, making it almost impossible for them to survive, and being driven to find short-term fixes such as destroying the local environment basically to be able to live. Deforestation causes dramatic changes not only on a global scale, but also locally, with severe flooding, erosion and desertification as proven outcomes.
Bungalow.Net has been searching in the past for a way to contribute to the environment in a major way and is still to this day glad to have found The Eden Reforestation Projects. The initiative understands the key elements of a successful reforestation, acknowledging that it’s not enough to replant trees, the local communities should also be helped out, this way breaking at least one of the cycles which leads to the disappearance of our forests and natural habitats.
The Eden Reforestation Projects uses the “Employ to Plant” method, offering steady employment for impoverished villagers. This way, a new cycle is born, in which locals plant trees, get payed through this steady employment and begin to afford daily necessities such as food, shelter, clothing and medicine.
The Eden Reforestation Projects is active in the following areas:
- Central America
BungalowNet is adamant in not giving up and working towards a greener future. It is clear we all have to stick together, work shoulder to shoulder and be the change we want to see in the world. Active participation in these projects is highly important on all levels, starting with individuals, small and medium companies and large corporations. With our involvement in the reforestation struggles, we are basically turning carefree holidays into workdays and living, planted trees on the other side of the globe, which is a great thought to start our days with. This knowledge keeps us moving forward and makes us want to give more, plant more and be even more involved, so as long as the Eden Reforestation Projects is still going, we will be there helping out and hopefully creating a more sustainable future for people and nature alike.
You can also help with donations or by booking your holiday with us, maybe both. Every small donation counts, every single tree and every workday created are important building blocks in the fragile ecosystem of things.
We can do this together!
