15 USD: protect an old-growth tree for one year; choose how many trees you would like to protect.
Several families who have farms in the Amazon have committed to protecting their ancient trees instead of cutting them down. For $ 15 you can adopt one of these trees for a full year and avoid their extraction.
Protect an old-growth tree for one year
Why is it important?
Every tree that is 35 or older consumes up to one ton of CO2 per year. This is very important for reducing the greenhouse gases that cause global warming. The greater amount of large trees that the planet has, the more carbon that is sequestered and held inside the tree.
