Let's talk about survival rates for a minute. Because planting a sapling ≠ growing a tree.

Here’s what we’re doing to make sure your trees survive 🧵 💚 People first. We always work shoulder-to-shoulder with local communities.

These ads look like search results, they just have the little word “ad” next to them.

The IPCC report is out, and we're running out of time to act on climate… The further we move beyond 1.5 degrees of warming, the more we lose the potential to benefit from restoring degraded ecosystems. More and more changes are at risk of becoming irreversible.
