Tahola and The Green Earth Appeal
Tahola has recently signed a partnership agreement with The Green Earth Appeal, outlining that we will plant a tree for every consultancy day we provide to all of our existing customers. The Green Earth Appeal works with a wide range of companies, from multinational corporations to small single site businesses, we will utilise their services to demonstrate our Corporate and Social Responsibility and as part of the Carbon Free Dining programme, we will also give our customers the option of tree planting to counterbalance the CO2 of their supplied product/service.
What The Green Earth Appeal Does
The Green Earth Appeal is a Not-For-Profit Social Enterprise, changing lives of some of the planet’s poorest communities through tree planting, in partnership with the United Nations Environment and with the assistance of companies like Tahola.
The Green Earth Appeal is one of a number of worldwide planting partners of the United Nations’ Trillion Tree Campaign, and is a part of a network of charities and NGOs (Non-Government Organisations) which since 1989, has aided thousands of communities in Central America, Africa, and Asia by planting 15 Billion trees. The Green Earth Appeal helps to create sustainable and productive communities throughout the developing world, by financing the teaching and empowering of rural groups to grow sustainable, renewable forests for agriculture and food, firewood, construction, water collection and filtration and animal habitat.
This is achieved through free education programmes and teams of dedicated individuals in the field who train, support and facilitate hope for members of communities to build better lives for themselves.
Why plant trees?
Because they change lives. They provide food, forage for animals, and wood for fuel and construction. They increase agricultural yields, improve water infiltration and aquifer recharge, and protect soils from wind and water erosion. However, planting trees can be difficult when the canopy has disappeared, topsoil has been eroded, and the climate and growing conditions have changed. As an agroforestry resource provider, their tree planting partners work with local farmers and community groups to help them better support themselves and to restore degraded lands to sustainable productivity by planting trees that not only thrive in poor soil conditions, but that also benefit the local area in a multitude of ways.
Through a network of technicians, volunteers and community leaders worldwide, their partners’ programme reaches out and provides the knowledge and ability to rehabilitate the environment. The primary partner network has helped thousands of communities in Latin America, Africa, and Asia to improve their livelihoods and environment by planting nearly 65 million trees........These trees remove over one and a half million tons of CO2 from the atmosphere each year.
