"Helping People And The Planet"
"Not only are we about exploring, we are about protecting our planet. Forests still cover about 30 percent of the world’s land area, but they are disappearing at an alarming rate. Between 1990 and 2016, the world lost 502,000 square miles (1.3 million square kilometers) of forest, according to the World Bank—an area larger than South Africa. Since humans started cutting down forests, 46 percent of trees have been felled, according to a 2015 study in the journal Nature. About 17 percent of the Amazonian rainforest has been destroyed over the past 50 years, and losses recently have been on the rise" (Christina Nunez, National Geographic).
Planting trees to combat deforestation and climate change
Our newest partnership was recently formed with Trees.org to try to diminish one of the largest crises to date. Trees.org helps the planet by cooling global temperatures and removing CO2 from the air. "In one year, an acre of mature trees absorbs the same amount of CO2 produced when you drive your car 26,000 miles" (treepeople.org). Not only do trees remove greenhouse gases, they cool the city, prevent water pollution, create natural ecosystems, provide food, and provide clean oxygen.
With each purchase, Nalo will plant 5 trees
The proceeds from each purchase will be used to plant 5 trees, assisting the planet by capturing carbon and other greenhouse gases. Global warming has been steadily increasing over the past 50 years, and this is leading to a rapidly increasing rate of animals joining the endangered list.
An estimated one and a half acres of forest are cut down every second, raising the annual greenhouse gas emissions by 12 to 17 percent (World Resources Institute). At this rate, it will take less than 100 years to remove all of earth's rainforests.
Nalo is having their part to try to combat the negative effects of deforestation, with the goal to slow the rapid rate of global warming. With your help, we can make an impact for future generations.
