The Green World Campaign works to reforest our planet, raise the living standards of the rural poor, and combat global climate change.  We plant trees to restore the ecology and economy of some of the world's poorest places. We help communities develop sustainable livelihoods, return barren soil to fertility, nurture biodiversity, and preserve cultural values. (GWC) connects those who want to help create a more sustainable world with on-the-ground projects that benefit people and planet. We focus on providing ecological and social benefits where they're most needed. We seek out effective grassroots partners, then finding the simplest, most direct ways we can all contribute to their success.

Why plant Trees?
-Tree planting creates ecologically and economically sustainable communities, lessens conflict over arable land and slows the pace of urban migration.
-We have cut down over half the trees on the planet. This has caused an unspeakable loss in biodiversity on the planet.
-Trees planted in the tropics grow 2 to 3 times faster.
-According to NASA and the Kyoto Protocol, 1 tree absorbs roughly 1 ton of CO2 over its life time. (The average American produces over 10 tons of CO2 per year.)
-Green World Campaign includes livelihood and technology programs whenever planting trees to ensure that residents can improve their standards of living while maintaining the forests.
Your tax-deductible donation goes to plant trees in environmentally damaged areas, creating sustainable villages, restoring indigenous ecologies, and mitigating our climate crisis. In addition to its own overseas field offices, the Green World Campaign donates to carefully vetted local tree-planting charities.
