„Deforestation affects wildlife,
ecosystems, weather patterns,
and even the climate.“

Deforestation drives 50.000 species
to extinction each year

About 17 percent of the Amazonian rainforest has been destroyed over the past 50 years

Deforestation can be a strong driver of infectious disease transmission

Planting trees is the best way to tackle climate change

Every tree absorbs CO₂ out of the atmosphere, converts it into biomass and stores it as long as the forest is sustained. The concept is simple and has huge potential to be a lifesaver for our environment, as the most economical and effective way to tackle climate change1. That's not all though: Trees provide even more benefits for the ecosystem by supporting the biodiversity and animal life while keeping the ground fertile, which in turn supports local communities2. So every time a tree is planted it directly changes the world for the better.

Our project partners:

WeForest

We partner with WeForest to plant trees in Africa – in Tanzania and Zambia. Not only do the supported projects restore the forests in these regions, they also teach the local population to use these trees sustainably as their livelihood.

Each time you donate seeds to support one of these projects we donate the cost of planting a tree together with our partners and sponsors. 100% of these donations go directly to WeForest.

Eden Reforestation

Eden Reforestation has tree planting projects all over the world. We support two projects: The planting of Mangroves in Madagaskar to help maintain one of earth’s most diverse ecosystems and the animals living within and in Mosambik, where the reforestation is crucial as the forests which are being destroyed are a basis of life for the very poor population.

Each time you donate seeds to support one of these projects we donate the cost of planting a tree together with our partners and sponsors. 100% of these donations go directly to Eden Reforestation.

Gone West

Through Gone West we support tree plantings in Portugal, more I precisely in regions that were impacted by the reoccurring bush fires. Gone West aims to restore the forests and villages, tackle desertification and enable the local communities to manage their forests sustainably.

goodbag and the Sustainable
Development Goals

What are SDGs?

goodbag fulfils 5 of the SDGs:

There needs to be a future in which cities provide opportunities for all, with access to basic services, energy, housing, transportation and more.

Sustainable consumption and production is about promoting resource and energy efficiency, sustainable infrastructure, and providing access to basic services, green and decent jobs and a better quality of life for all.

Climate change is a global challenge that affects everyone, everywhere.

Careful management of this essential global resource is a key feature of a sustainable future.

Sustainably manage forests, combat desertification, halt and reverse land degradation, halt biodiversity loss.
