BTM Energy partnered with the Eden Reforestation Project to reduce extreme poverty and restore healthy forests by employing local villagers to plant millions of trees every year, all over the world.
The destruction of healthy forest systems causes so many different problems. Trees provide a habitat for animals, purify water sources, control flooding and erosion and help to replenish the soil with nutrients needed for farming. When farmers can’t grow anything their farms fail and they have no option but to move to the overcrowded cities looking for work. Often they have to resort to selling themselves or their families into slavery just to survive.
By the year 2025, Eden’s objective is to plant a minimum of 500 million trees each year and to offer hope through the employment of tens of thousands of people in countries where extreme poverty is rampant.
By keeping the overhead costs low, we are now recognized as one of the most cost-effective reforestation projects on the planet. While our primary goal is to lift people out of extreme poverty, we have also become a model for environmental restoration and land management.
