Community & Location

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.

Cheers to a sustainable tomorrow in Taiwan

At trace we value projects with co-benefits. The wind farms we fund in Taiwan are going above and beyond. Funding scholarships and organising community clean ups are bringing people closer together to fight for a common cause; a better tomorrow. 

Helping children in Rwanda stay in school

trace funds the Clean Community Water Supply projects in Rwanda. This restores and repairs existing boreholes to provide clean drinking water to Rwandan communities. This removes the need for Rwandans to boil water over inefficient wood-fuelled fires or travel long distances to get clean drinking water. By providing communities with clean drinking water children no longer have to spend hours collecting water or firewood. Parents are able to encourage their children to stay in school and gain an education. 

The importance of Biodiversity Conservation in Australia

Biodiversity is the pillar that allows ecosystems to function and humans to thrive. Human activity is a major contributor to the rapid rate of biodiversity decline in Australia. Land use change and climate change are leading drivers. As a member of trace you can fund biodiversity conservation in South Australia.
