Nonprofit plants its 250 millionth tree in order to help heal the planet

Eden Reforestation Projects (Eden) — a non-profit organization whose mission is to provide poverty relief by employing local villagers in Haiti, Madagascar, and Nepal to help with reforestation — recently announced they've planted 250 million trees around the world.

Eden's “employ to plant methodology" provides a living wage to their employees so they can support their families and help restore their local economies, all while tackling the climate crisis.

“We hire the poorest of the poor to grow, plant, and guard to maturity native species forest on a massive scale," according to the organization's website.

Their goal is to plant a minimum of 500 million trees each year by 2025 with the support of the tens of thousands of people working for them in extremely impoverished nations.
