#TreesAreTheKey. Trees planted in the tropics absorb CO2 faster than anywhere else on the planet. ¼ acre of trees will absorb 7½ years worth of average emissions of a single person from the developed world, in about 7½ years! Planting trees in Kenya – en masse – is one of the only ways we’re going to be able to mitigate extreme weather related disasters. These trees also absorb other pollutants from the atmosphere, subsequently cleaning the air we breathe all over the world. The Word Forest Organisation plant trees, build schools, facilitate education & support women’s empowerment in rural Kenya. Word Forest believes the best way to ensure the health, well-being and protection of the new fast-growing forests is by applying a holistic approach, investing in the people who are tending the trees.
