Earthaid Solutions e.V. is an association founded by students from Germany and Switzerland. Our aim is to contribute to the protection of the environment and to provide solutions to fight global warming. Currently, we mostly focus on planting trees in Brazil in order to tackle deforestation in the country.
Brazil, which hosts a third of the Amazon rainforest, is suffering from extreme deforestation. In 2019, around 9’700 square kilometers were deforested. This is the equivalent to approximately 22% of the Swiss territory or 1,358,500 football fields. This unfathomable number shows that it is time to take action!
To this end, we work in collaboration with a renowned Brazilian environmental organisation called CEPAN (http://cepan.org.br
). Last year, we planted the first 1,000 trees as part of a pilot project. We also invited the students of Núcleo Colégio to join us on an excursion to learn more about nature and to help reforest their state. By working with local communities, we double our impact by raising awareness of the environment in everyday life. However, 1,000 trees are not going to save the planet, which is why it is time to see bigger. This time and with your help, we would like to plant 10,000 trees.
It is relevant to mention that we work on a volunteering basis, meaning that the entirety of your donations will then be invested in the plantation.
