July 31st & August 2nd 2020
While this year 'Plant a Tree Day' might be a little more difficult than usual especially if you reside in Victoria where the Covid restrictions are still quite strong, so we've found an alternative option if you are unable to get out there and plant a tree yourself. I should also mention that due to the severe bush fires Australia faced last year there are specific areas which were hit hardest and are in particular need of reforestation.
We have partnered with Ecologi and are currently planting 5 trees a month in Australia where they are needed most and you can too! Ecologi focus on reforestation around the world where tree's are needed most. Not only do they plant trees for you but they also invest in a variety of projects to reduce CO2 emissions.
'Schools plant a tree day' is coming up first on the 31st of July followed by 'Plant a Tree Day' on the 2nd August. Here is some educational content for the kids: https://treeday.planetark.org/get-involved/schools and here is where you can get involved this year with some virtual events: https://treeday.planetark.org/get-involved/community.
The fantastic thing about Ecologi is that they offer you a very nice virtual representation of your impact including your very own virtual forest! See a screenshot of our own virtual forest below or click on the image to see the live view where you can sign up for your own account, i'm sure the kids will love it too! Just to top it all off, if you sign up using our link, Ecologi will plant 30 sparkly trees in your virtual forest and 30 sparkly trees in ours!
