It is estimated that within 100 years there will be no rainforests, if the rates of deforestation continue. One and a half acres of forest are cut down every second, mainly due to animal agriculture!
Our forests are known as "the lungs" of the Earth. They are responsible for absorbing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and releasing oxygen. Without rainforests, CO2 levels will continue to rise, and our oxygen levels will fall. Many species of animals will go extinct without trees for homes, which will in turn throw ecosystems out of balance. Deforestation specifically affects people in rural areas who are dependent on forests as well.
We still have a chance to create a more sustainable future, but we have to act fast. This is why at Medicine of the Earth, we are extremely passionate about donating to reforestation projects and keeping our products organic and vegan.
We currently have a partnership with Eden Reforestation Projects, which:
- Globally restores native forests
- Provides food for villagers, shelter for wildlife, shade, medicines, soil regeneration and climate regulation through a village-wide tree-planting program
- Lifts local people and communities out of extreme poverty
Plus, for each supplement bottle you purchase from us, 11 trees will be planted in your honor! In this sense, you will quite literally be healing yourself, as you heal the world! :)
Help us reach our goal of planting 1 million trees by 2025!
