THE NEW TREE CAUSE
Deforestation is not only a main contributor to climate change but also to the severe reduction in biological diversity, which Madagascar is no stranger to. This action driven by twisted and outdated political motives, has nearly destroyed Madagascar’s environment and driven millions into poverty. Many Malagasy people live on less than a $1.25 a day, with the environment to poor to continue to farm, many are forced into slavery to survive. Severe action needs to be taken, and that is what we plan to do.
We work in partnership with Eden Reforestation Projects to employ local Malagasy people to help rebuild the environment they live in. Through fair wage and the involvement of the Malagasy in their environment, they are not only educated in the importance of conservation and diversity but also are pulled out of slavery and into surplus.
