Indiegogo: A Billion Trees over the next five years

SGI intends to plant a Billion Trees over the next five years.

This Indiegogo project is the beginning of this mission. A billion trees project will include planting fruit trees, medicinal trees, timber trees and also trees used for foraging needs of animals.

Why plant trees at all?

We are all aware of the damage and destruction being caused around us by tsunamis, hurricanes, floods, super-storms and such activities which are threatening the very foundation of human life.

The recent thunderstorms in Bangladesh left over a million people homeless. Today the Czech republic is reeling under flood waters.

What is the cause of this? What lies beneath all this change in climate patterns? Scientists have come to the conclusion that this climate change is being caused by human beings. Global warming is caused by Green House Gases which in turn is caused by deforestation, industrial pollution and burning of fossil fuels.

While the jury is still out on how we can create alternate forms of energy which will put an end to the aforesaid forms of pollution, a lot many scientist and ecological thinkers agree that planting trees is the simplest and the most easy form of handling this menace that threatens to wipe out humanity.
We at Sustainable Green Initiative work to plant (mostly fruit) trees. We plant trees in land owned by marginal/ below poverty line farmers. We assist them with saplings appropriate to the land and with training and monetary support to ensure the plants reach maturity.

On fruiting, each tree gives the farmer a means to a sustainable livelihood while also tackling the menace of Carbon Di Oxide and GHG pollution. A grove of 100 trees ensures that such farmers do not migrate to urban areas under pressure to eke out a living.

Your support to SGI in this pilot can help us work towards a PPP project that may result in WB and UNFCCC funding.

We look forward to your partnering us in this mission.

The simplest way to combat climate change is to plant trees: Trees breathe in Carbon Di Oxide and through the process of photo-synthesis create food for themselves and breathe out Oxygen.

At Sustainable Green Initiative, we plant trees to help the fight against climate change and also hunger, poverty and rural migration. By planting a tree you help in doing your bit to mitigate your carbon footprint and carry on the fight against hunger, poverty and climate change.

Did you know a tree sequesters about 1 ton of carbon and processes enough oxygen for two peoples requirements in its life-time?
