We plant trees in Africa since trees is helping earth to lower CO2-emissions. Each tree can absorb up to 22 kg per CO2 a year and the lifespan for a tree is often 30-40 years.
A Good Company is planting trees in Zambia, Africa together with Weforest.
"We are working with A Good Company towards a world where forests are sustainably managed for climate and humanity, through engaging the greatest brands, promoting science-based solutions and creating a global movement.

In the Luanshya district of the Zambian Copperbelt, WeForest works with hundreds of small-scale farmers. Providing them with training and tools to diversify their sources of income while they plant and protect local forests. As a result, they receive a higher income, diversify their economic activities and learn new skills. The project also links the farmers to local private sector companies to ensure their honey for example gets sold. This way, the project becomes more sustainable, which makes the beneficiaries less dependant on the WeForest contribution.
