Every pair you get of the Rancho Collection helps directly to plant 5 trees join to the NGO Eden Reforestation Projects.
This balance our carbon footprint and reforest the planet.
Together with Eden Reforestation Projects we have two reforestation projects directly affecting the repopulation of trees in Madagascar and Mozambique.
Madagascar has more than 200,000 species of plants and animals that do not exist anywhere else in the world.
Currently more than 90% of Madagascar's original forests have been destroyed, affecting and displacing many species of animals and taking away the ability to retain moisture, causing droughts, among other negative environmental phenomena.
Together with Eden Projects we are reforesting estuaries of ecologically devastated mangroves in the northwest of the country.
Mangroves are an essential ecosystem with dense roots which serve as an anchor for the soil and the coast avoiding erosion and creating a barrier between ocean systems and land.
In addition, , another of the objectives we have with Eden Projects is to reforest and revive the natural habitat of endangered animal species..
Madagascar has some of the most unique and rare plant animals and species on earth, and yet 50% are in danger of extinction. In fact, one of the rarest species of mammals on earth, the Lemur, lives in the forests of Madagascar.
More than half of all species of lemurs are classified as vulnerable, endangered or critically endangered. In the last 2,000 years at least 15 species of lemurs have become extinct. The two main reasons why these fascinating creatures are disappearing are poaching and deforestation..
Through the methodology imply to plant, we have hired hundreds of local villagers to restore their land by planting trees. Recovering forests means creating a safe haven for lemurs and the many other endangered species of Madagascar.
Mozambique is located on the east coast of Africa and 68% of its population lives in rural areas of the country. This country is home to 20 species of endangered birds and more than 200 species of mammals. With more than 45% of the population living below the poverty line, Mozambique's population relies on its natural resources and forests to survive.
Like Madagascar, Mozambique is home to vast mangrove forests, and as in Madagascar, Mozambique's mangroves have been decimated and largely destroyed.
Together with Eden Reforestation Projects we are working with local communities and villagers to restore, replant and protect these beautiful forest systems.
Mozambique is home to more than 5700 species of plants, 685 species of birds, 195 species of mammals and 228 reptiles. Reforesting these areas helps give employment to the Mozambican population, enabling them to emerge from povertyFurthermore, through reforestation we are protecting the ecosystem of all the species that inhabit here.
