Plant for the Planet: the Billion Trees Campaign
Nobel Peace Prize laureate Wangari Maathai recently stated that what we really need to do is plant a billion trees. Having planted 30 million trees herself, Maathai has inspired a movement. Last year, participants in the UN Environment Program put more than 7 billion trees into the earth across 170 countries. Trees are vital to our ecosystems, providing breathable air, drinkable water, fertile soils, and a stable climate. Pledge online to plant as many trees as you are able, then watch as the global tally climbs.
