Reducing our CO2 emissions
According to Tanzania's 2007 Forest Policy, Tanzania is one of the countries with a particularly high deforestation rate, ranging from 130,000 ha to 500,000 ha per year. Forests are gradually being destroyed in the name of agricultural land expansion, charcoal and fuelwood production or other industrial activities. According to UNEP, (the United Nations Environment Programme, an organization dependent on the United Nations), "in the last century, the world lost more than 80% of its original forests. Every day, the equivalent of a football field of forest space disappears, and about 2000 trees are cut down every minute".
A citizen's solution
to climate change
One pair purchased
= One tree planted
This is why every time you order eco-responsible shoes on our site, a tree will be planted. We have carefully chosen this tree: it is a Cordia Africana, a fast growing tree that does not threaten the ecosystem. This species, both fruit and medicinal, will offset 100kg of CO2 emissions throughout its life. Its wood can also be used as a hive for bees, which can feed on the nectar from its flowers.
