PLANT & PREVENT
4 out of 10 trees present in 1950 have now gone and deforestation in Madagascar is increasing.
15 SPECIES OF LEMUR HAVE ALREADY GONE EXTINCT
Deforestation in Madagascar
“It has been noticed that Madagascar has lost 80 or 90% of its ‘original’ or ‘pre-human’ forest cover. The primary cause of this island clearance for agriculture.”
Lemurs are almost completely gone
The most aggressive technique to clear the land in Madagascar is called “slash-and-burn”. As the name suggests, first the trees are cut, and then burned. After that, the land is mostly used for rice plantations.
After the same patch of land has been cultivated two or three times using this method, the soil becomes so depleted that it is unproductive. It is then abandoned and left in a deforested state.
Forests in Madagascar play a very important role in global climate change and also in the world’s biodiversity. We can protect it only if we work together. You can join our planting and preservation efforts in Madagascar by purchasing the Madagascar Bracelet.
HAND-ASSEMBLED IN SLOVENIA, CREATING JOBS FOR THE LOCALS ALL OVER THE WORLD
Purchasing a Treecelet bracelet does more than just plant trees. Our bracelets are hand-made in Slovenia by mothers that take care of their children at home. This way, they can work from home and raise our most precious gold – children. Are children not one of the main reasons to preserve nature?
The bracelets also provide sustainable and living-wage jobs to local people where the trees are planted. By financing tree planting projects, nature preservation becomes their mission.
