Did you know?
A new law in the Philippines requires all graduating high school and college students to plant at least 10 trees each in order to graduate.
If properly implemented, this law is expected to ensure that at least 175 million new trees would be planted each year.
The Philippines is one of the world’s most severely deforested countries with total forest cover dropping from 70% to just 20% in the 20th century.
You too, you can help planting a tree!
Here are a couple of tips:
Sponsor a tree – Just type “sponsor a tree” on any browser and choose the organisation of your choice!
Also, choose seed paper plantable greeting cards! These are great for birthdays, or any occasion really. Every occasion is good to get some trees planted out there 🌿🌿
