For April Random Act of Kindness, Blue Planet Eco-Eyewear has partnered with Trees For The Future and committed to donating 1,000 trees to their program this month.
We lose trees at a rate of 50 soccer fields per minute as our food systems destroy our ecosystems. Most of this degradation occurs in the developing tropics of Africa, Latin America, and South and Southeast Asia where hundreds of millions of chronically-hungry, smallholder farming families use destructive and short-sighted agricultural practices that further degrade their communities trees, soil, water and biodiversity, making them even more likely to migrate and more vulnerable to the climate changes that lie ahead.
The Forest Garden Program is a simple, replicable and scalable approach with proven success. By planting specific types of fast-growing trees, fruit trees, hardwoods and food crops in a systematic manner over a four year period, families can positively change their lives forever. Forest Gardens consist of thousands of trees that provide families with sustainable food sources, livestock feed, products to sell, fuel wood and a 400% increase in their annual income in four years.

Before buying anything, try to make it a habit to ask yourself the very important question of whether you need it or not to limit compulsive shopping habits. Aside from being environmentally friendly, this also leaves you with money to spend on more important things. Remember that even small changes, when carried out together, will create a big impact on our planet.
