“Think globally act locally”.
Planting a trillion more trees globally is the most effective way to manage climate change. Trees act as air filters for our Mother Earth. In India there are many projects going on to supplement much needed reforestation for oxygen, water, to minimise soil erosion and provide livelihood to communities. Thank you to Renu and the ladies of Stree for connecting us with local people who can find the land and seeds to help us plant more trees.
