When tree planting pays off (literally)



Fátima is Ecosia's Video Editorial Lead. She thinks in many Sprachen.

Perhaps one of the loudest arguments against a greener economy is that it will kill jobs. But what if environmental work and green jobs could actually help both the planet and the economy?

In this video, we spoke to Marcela from Pontal do Paranapanema, in Western Brazil. Here, Ecosia’s tree-planting partner, IPÊ, employs local communities to grow and plant the tree saplings in a massive effort to restore the Atlantic Forest.

Already today,  our tree-planting partner’s efforts are attracting many animal species that had fled due to the lack of food and shelter in the area, all while employing 214 people, and counting!

Watch the video to see for yourself: how tree-planting can change lives and, if we give it a serious chance, our one world.
