Tree planting for a greener future

In 2018, Cofoco entered into a partnership with Green Earth Appeal through the Carbon Free Dining initiative. The initiative is working to establish ecosystems and sustainable forest and agriculture in the Usambara Mountains in Tanzania. The tree planting project aims to educate and strengthen communities with jobs, knowledge and tools to restore biodiversity and establish self-sufficient, sustainable ecosystems benefiting the local environment and the overall CO2 content of the atmosphere. The trees have a measurable effect on the amount of CO2 in the atmosphere, since each tree in an average lifetime (expected 40 years) absorbs in the vicinity of 1 ton of CO2.
