Seed For A Seed: Nurturing More than Memories
By: Mars Salazar
We’re very passionate about the environment here at the Nixplay HQ. In July, we invited Fanny Moritz of eco-friendly lifestyle concept store NO!W No Waste to share some ways to live more sustainably. We’re also working on attaining Zero Plastic Packaging status soon.
Our biggest project so far is Seed For A Seed, our tree-planting initiative in partnership with the non-profit organization Trees for the Future.
For every Nixplay Seed Frame that gets sold, a tree seed gets planted.
Seed for a Seed started in June 2017, when we asked Trees for the Future to plant 10,000 trees in Sub-Saharan Africa to create Forest Gardens. Forest Gardens provide impoverished families with sustainable food sources, livestock feed, and livelihood options.
By the end of 2018, Nixplay would have planted 193,135 trees. And with your help, we can plant thousands more.
The Forest Garden approach works.
Participating farmers reported that planting Forest Gardens reduced deforestation, helped them attain food security, and lifted them from poverty. Trees also help combat the effects of climate change, create economic opportunities, and bring people together.
In addition to Forest Gardens, Trees for the Future also provides farmers with technical training and on-site planning assistance, uplifting African communities in the most sustainable way.
Nixplay is proud to be supporting Trees for the Future.
With climate change in full swing, the need to live sustainably and responsibly has never been more urgent. By working with Trees for the Future, we’re helping curb the devastating effects of global warming in our own little way.
