Eden Reforestation currently run projects all across the world in Mozambique, Indonesia, Kenya, Haiti, Madagascar, Nepal and Central America. We contribute to all of the countries with our members subscriptions. As trace grows we can choose really specific regions to fund planting projects.

Project snapshot

Eden Reforestation takes a holistic approach to reforestation and ecological restoration. Their national leaders partner with villages and local communities who are committed to regenerating their forests. This methodology allows for the hiring and training of local villagers to plant new trees and have an active role in protecting their new forests. 

Why we fund this project

In only fifteen years, Eden Reforestation has become the largest tree planting organisation in the world.  Since they began over 384 million trees have been planted around the world in Ethiopia, Madagascar, Nepal, Haiti, Indonesia, Mozambique, Kenya, and Central America. By addressing poverty alleviation and empowering local communities as agents of environmental restoration, they are knocking down the giants of global deforestation, climate mitigation, women disempowerment and species extinction. 

How does this project help?

The sustainable relationships created between communities and their environments not only helps to transform our environment but the lives of the workers. By providing impoverished workers with a fair and consistent wage they are able to provide for their families, send their children to school and achieve independence and freedom in their own lives.

As the reforestation effort goes on, healthy forests begin to emerge and the negative effects of deforestation begin to disappear. Local microeconomics begin to form, small businesses start up and improvements in biodiversity and fertility in the local area are evident.

Who else is behind this project?

As a non-profit they have many partners including Ecosia, 10 tentree, Tree sisters, 8 Billion trees, Hopper, The Vos Foundation and many more.

This project is also verified by...

So this project is a little different. We don't buy trees as formal carbon credits so this is an added extra for our members and not verified by an external body. We chose Eden Reforestation to partner with to plant trees because we love the work they do.

Myamyn Lowland Conservation - The importance of Native Reforestation

The Myamyn Lowland Conversation project is reversing the destruction caused by illegal deforestation and afforestation of intrusive, non-native species. The project recognises the importance of native afforestation in rehabilitating the animal species that are facing extinction as a result of displacement from past destruction. We have reviewed how and why biodiversity is important.

Mangroves Restoration: Meet the locals

Mozambique is home to the second most diverse set of coral reefs in the world and planting Mangrove forests helps the endangered marine species thrive. Trace funds this work with Eden Reforestation to not only sequester carbon and empower the local communities but also to improve the surrounding reefs and aquatic life.

Protecting Australia's Animals

We saw the devastation associated with the bushfires earlier in the year as up to 1 billion animals perished and their habitats went up in flames. This is why we’re proud to be supporting the Myamyn Lowland Forest conservation project which is working to rehabilitate and revegetate illegally cleared land and permanently protect habitats for vulnerable native species.
