I am super pleased to announce that Easy Way to Go Vegan is now a registered member of @ and we are committed to reforestation!
I will donate to this charity from now on from every single purchase made! YAYYYY! This is literally the most exciting news ever for me and I am so pleased that I will be able to do something to help!
I've committed to reforestation of Indonesia, a home to magnificent rainforests, carbon-rich peatlands, and diverse wildlife like orangutans, proboscis monkeys, Sun bears and over 1,700 species of birds. This project focuses on the Kalimantan region in Borneo, home to the Tanjung Puting National Park. In 2015, rampant fires burnt and destroyed more than 30,000 hectares of its forest. We work to restore areas affected by these fires, as well as those threatened by the palm oil industry and illegal mining operations!
The planters in Indonesia work to ensure balance is restored both environmentally and economically with the growth of new trees. This project helps to educate local villages about the importance of conservation, create jobs for those in the area, and provide long-term income for the community. To reach this area requires a four-hour boat ride through areas inhabited by orangutans, hornbills, proboscis monkeys, crocodiles, and many more unique flora and fauna.
