You voted, we planted!
When we founded Brovation, our goal was to support reforestation and to plant trees for every sold product. In February 2021, we planted our first 100 trees which were planted in the Albertine Rift forests of Uganda to protect Chimpanzee habitat. It makes us proud to have taken the first official step to help our planet and forests recover, help to protect endangered species and fight deforestation. Be assured that this was only the beginning. Together with you, we will plant many more trees all around the world!
Overview and Impact
Restoring and conserving nature for biodiversity but also supporting local communities is the main objective of planting trees. The Albertine Rift is globally renowned as a hotspot for biodiversity. In terms of endemic species of reptiles, mammals, amphibians and birds it ranks first among 119 distinct terrestrial eco-regions of Africa. It ranks second with regards to globally threatened species. This region includes over 50% of birds, 39% of mammals, 19% of amphibians, and 14% of reptiles and plants of the African mainland. The refurbishment of these forests will have a positive impact on carbon sequestration, help ecosystem functioning (e.g., water catchment), increase sustainable practices for local people and make sure highly endangered species that rely on the Albertine Rift for survival preserve a habitat – including the chimpanzee.
´One Tree Planted´
We plant our trees with our great partner ´One Tree Planted´, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization with a focus on global reforestation. Founded in 2014, ´One Tree Planted´ managed to double the number of trees planted year over year and has well-established reforestation partners in Asia, Africa, North America and South America. In 2020, they planted 15 million trees across the world – tripling the impact they had in 2019.
Our partner ´One Tree Planted´ plants a variety of local trees based on the needs of specific sites. Species include, among others, Maesopsis eminii, Cordia africana, Milicia excelsa, Mitrigyna stipulosa, Lovoa trichiliodes, Khaya anthotheca (an African Mahogany), and Albizia, Trichilia and Ficus (Fig) species.
